    That was a nasty piece of butchery, and not really 'baffle removal' right? More like an appendectomy. It would have had more credibility if it also had a piece showing how to replace said butchered baffle if the excision proved to be nastier and noisier than expected. Talk about one-way trips....

    PS, to myself: If a link opens up to a shot of an angle grinder as an 'essential tool' delete and move on. We can all make videos that involve grinding away at OEM parts but only Allen Milllyard gets to have repeat views. IMHO.

    PPS. These total berks make the foolish wish that they will now enjoy a 'few more horsepower'. Really? Just cut out stuff and get more powerful? Are we back in the 1980's? No mention of a revised tune, just cut, talk sh#t, and ride an improved bike. Man, I hope Triumph see this, must be a big help to their effort. Wasting all that time on hydrostatic flow, finessed injection, etc. Ludicrous.

    These total berks

    Didn't want to say that in case they're on here  :034:
    Whatever you think of the method, the vid does show how the baffle is attached, allowing you to decide if you really want to go through with this.

    certainly not expecting any horsepower gains, but I nicer rumble and quicker engine response would be nice.

    Don't see you getting any quicker response, only opened the exhaust will make next to no difference, get a quick action throttle 😄

    I see that this is indeed a welded in baffle. It slides in and is factory welded around the edge.
    So if, for whatever reason , you want to remove it, you need to grind or cut the weld around that edge to slide it out. There is no other way to do it. So I am afraid to say it , but the video shows the ugly truth how to do it if you really want to remove the baffle

    The only reason to get it out would be the fuller bass sound. Personally I am not really in to loud exhausts ( using my Tiger almost daily) , but I can imagine and understand another owner wanting that sound and I have no problem with that.
    I don't believe you can expect an increase in torque or power.

    That said, placing that baffle in again can be done perfectly if both the slide-in baffle and the outer fixed exhaustpart are evenly cut or grinded and finished off and riveted or bolted around that edge.

    Although I am not in for loud expensive exhausts myself, somehow they follow me  :008:
    My street triple came with a set of obnoxiously loud but hilarious sc-projects carbon exhausts. The baffle slid in and out and was fixed with one allen screw from factory. I preferred riding with my OEM exhausts . It's new owner is over the moon with the sc-projects though
    My Tiger also came with a beautiful SC-projects carbon, but fortunately it isn't as loud as the street triple,because the previous owner promissed me the OEM (it was in the sale), but I never got it from him.

    definitely not into obnoxiously loud exhausts either, some of the Harleys that get around my local area are ridiculously load. They obviously down ride far with them, eyes would be ringing after few hours.

    But having had a Yoshi on my 765, I do like the sound of that deep triple rumble.
