There are few sounds like the classic rumble of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. By removing the baffles from the exhaust system, that rumble can turn to thunder on the road.

Moderately Easy


Things You'll Need

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Hooked metal rod 1/4-inch diameter, 2 feet long
  • Work gloves
    • 1

      Remove the Phillips screw located 1 to 4 inches from the end of the underside rear of the exhaust pipe.

    • 2

      Place the metal rod with a hook, hook end first, into the exhaust pipe. Catch the end of the baffle with the hook.

    • 3

      Pull the baffle out of the exhaust pipe. Use gloves to handle baffles.

Tips & Warnings

  • Without baffles,you will gain sound, but may lose compression and power. To regain lost compression, professional mechanics recommend installing torque cones.

  • Some baffles are difficult to remove and require a lot of strength to pull them out. Take care to avoid injury.

  • Most baffles are wrapped in a fireproof fibrous coating that may be hazardous to touch or inhale. Take caution when working with the baffle.

  • If disposing of baffles, do so according to the environmental codes in your area.
