I was going to post this in the modifications/projects forums, but seeing as though it seems every second poster in this forum owns a VTR 250 I thoght here would be appropriate. Yesterday I installed a staintune pipe on my VTR, looks the goods and sounds heaps better than stock. It's snowing outside at the moment so I've been unable to get out for a ride to have a good listen and to see how the bike feels. The staintune exhaust comes with a removable baffle my question is what are the pros and cons of removing the baffle., Pros - Sounds a bit louder ( always a good thing) - ? Cons - Potentially dosn't run as good, something to do with less back pressure ( hopefully someone with a bit more technical knowledge can elaborate this) - ? Any other Pro or Cons or comments on whether to run it with the baffle in or out?
