This is my first post on this forum. From all indications there appears to be a impressive knowlege base here so I hope someone can help. I had replaced the stock baffles in my V&H Longshots with the quiet baffles early last season. The pipes have gotten louder and so I would like to wrap some fresh packing around them. Problem is I cannot get them to come out. I remomved the holding screws and can turn them with some difficulty with a 1ft. nail puller but cannot get them to come out. I've tried hooking the welded bolt nut and yanking but to no avail. Is there any tool out there that I could find and purchase that would allow me get this done?? Thanks.
