removing removable baffles

I have spent the last 3 days spraying break free, heating pulling pulling heating spraying break free trying to remove some removable baffles from my Hoske mufflers.
The one side came out with a tug, this one is not moving.
Any suggestions?

I think a good slide hammer would help a lot more than all the Gods put together!

Smart ass comments aside, there are a few basic rules in freeing any seized part. One is heat and cool cycles - get the two parts to expand and contract at different rates, creating a gap into which penetrating fluid can seep.

Don't go in one direction only. If you want it out, also push it in - back and forth. Try to create just a little movement and then expand that.

Rotational force - move it clockwise, then counter.

Vibration - tap. Just light raps to set up a ringing - they'll vibrate at different frequencies helping to separate them.

Apply rust remover - naval jelly, apple cider vinegar, phosphoric acid, ?

Patience - you'll need loads of this! It'll seem hopeless up until the point it starts moving. And then you'll need it even more to keep from over-doing it.

You might try riding the bike with the baffle un-bolted. Perhaps the pressures and heat will blow it out. Have it wired so when/if it does come out it won't be lost on the road somewhere.

Hey there,


Just wondering if you had a soundbite of the baffles removed. I don't want the bike to be too loud. Thank you!
