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

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.
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.

Got in a little ride today and battled some wind and even found some snow. Tried to do a video to hear the modified Arrow baffle and must have put the microphone in the wrong place as all I got was wind noise
It sounds good so I think I'll just leave the baffle just the way it is
A bit of snow in Running Springs just because my video came out crappy and I wanted to post something

I would be reluctant to alter the baffle. With the DB killer out it is very loud and too loud for me.. With the DB killer in it is louder than stock but very tolerable. Drilling out the baffle may or may not give a few more ponies but I am willing to give Leo Vince a nod that they know way more than I about optimizing horsepower. With the db killer in the stock map works fine. With the db killer out you either need the Arrow map or a custom Power Commander or Techclusion map. Reducing back pressure may or may not work in your favor.
YMMV

I'm surprised dropping one tooth on the front is sufficient to now make the chain too long. I have done it on several of my track day bikes through the years and never had a problem. Adding another two tooth on the rear (from 50 to 52) might solve your chain length problem, but I think the low end gain will not be subtle. The change will be substantial and in my opinion exacerbate the issue of the engine already turning high rpm in 6th gear. IMO sixth gear is too low and this will make it worse. Each to his own of course. Hope it works out for you.
FYI at 6000 RPM in sixth gear your speed will be 83 MPH. With the new gearing (15/52) at 6000 RPM your speed will be 75 MPH.

That's such a beautiful bike Jerry. You must be proud of it, and it's pretty well setup to tour on too.

Did you roll this outside your house and take the pic before you left? It looks pretty dry for a snowy ride.
