    T you could also cut the stock baffles down. That is what alot of guys have done.

    Gasman,
    As far as getting your bike dyno tuned with big radius pipes on it, would you be better off having the whole baffles in to get the most out of tuning the bike?

    You will lose a lot of your low end torque. I found the best setup was to cut them in half. Gives you more of the best of both worlds.

    Do you mean lengthwise on the cutting in half? I know a stupid question but I had to ask.

    If they are 12" long cut it in half so they are 6" long. One end has a tab with a screw hole in it to attach it to the pipe. Throw the other end away.

    I just installed the Big Radius kit on my bike this weekend. Its not as loud as the kit I had on there before but its a good sound. How much better does it sound with no baffles at all vs with the baffles gas man found? What are the pro's / con's and differences?
