Motorbike: Honda VF 750 Magna
Default Baffled

Well lads. Hope someone can help me out here. Have had the Magna VF 750 a few months now and love it. Someone suggested removing the baffles to give it a bit more grunt. Whats the general conciseness on this?

Also would I have to re-jet the carbs if I remove the baffles?

If it's the newer model 750 (not the one from the '80s) you can drill the rivets and pull out the "piglet" - then cut off the bulb and re-rivet the cap back in place.
This gives a much better sound without being obnoxious, if you want it a bit louder then don't bother putting the cap back on at all..
