Arrow baffle

Any reason you haven't tried running without the baffle? Sounds great, not loud, just character. Ken

The video would be great if you just added all three back to back for a comparison.

After I watched yours I clicked a couple suggested/related ones and ended up seeing the Staintune, the LV, and this one from Fuel which seemed to be throaty like the LV but even moreso...

Nice how he pulls the baffle out while it's running so you can really hear the change.

I have ran it without the baffle and it sounded a little loud to me, but listening to my video I just may take the baffle out again
as it doesn't sound as loud as I thought

Thanks so much for posting that. When I get up the nerve to remove the baffle I'll see for myself. Where is the retaining screw?

If I am understanding this correctly the process is:
1) locate and remove retaining screw
2) insert broom handle then wiggle and pull.

(dear god it felt strange typing that)

Then to replace it just verse the directions?

Next time somebody is playing with their baffle :/
if I they think of it - a simple photo walk through for those of us that are timid would be appreciated.

May get out for a ride today if the wind stops blowing in Cajon Pass and head up 138 with Drift HD. If I do I'll post up another video so we can hear how it sounds.
Just checked the weather station in the pass and the wind is only gusting to 40mph so maybe a little later today it will calm down

LOL, the screw is at 2:00 just inside the outlet and you will need a T-30 torx bit, the short kind that go into a handle and just use a 1/4" wrench on the shank of the bit and be careful not to bugger up the screw. It's easier than it sounds.

Has anyone been successful in finding a 52 tooth rear sprocket yet? I dropped a tooth in the front but now my chain is too long. I'm hesitant to take the risk of breaking the chain and shortening it, to find out I dont like the smaller front. I would think a 52 rear will be just enough to keep the chain length and still give a subtle low end gain.

Substantially lighter than stock? Running stock (non-Arrow) fuel map? Don't have facebook account so can't access the link.

Yes much lighter than stock, and I am running the stock fuel map. With the quiet core there is no need for the arrow map, so says Leo Vince. It is raining and snowing here at the moment, so I can't ride it so see if I picked up any lean dead spots. It seems to rev more freely. It is also tighter to the bike, so I can make my bag mounts closer.

Caribou top case is locked and loaded. It will be nice to now have a sturdy top rack and a top case for around town and for the long trips.

How much and where from ? I have a Givi at the moment and it's a great case but I do worry a little about how durable it would be in tipover etc.
