Remember if you do take out the baffles you must re jet the carbs. I have the holesaw mod on mine , Sounds great.

I removed the resonators from my exhaust (Hole Saw Modification). It literally took five minutes and only cost me the price of a two-inch hole saw. I did not have to rejet for this mod.

Here is a link to a YouTube video . . . it's not an ACE but at least it will give you some ideas.

Excellent video, should take a lot of "fear" out of completing the job for first timers.

That's ok. One post for each pipe

I have an 03 750 Spirit. I might break down and do this. I already did it on my Yami....made a big difference.

in the video he mentioned in passing about perhaps doing just one of the pipes. Has anyone tried that? I'm wondering if doing both would just make it too loud but am worried doing just one could have an adverse effect on performance. It is definitely one of those no turning back mods
