I guess what I need to know is if I can drill a half-inch hole in the center of the baffles. I've done this before on Sportsters & Dynas to make a poor man's Torque muffler. Will this be dooable on these Cat Mufflers?
I read a post over at the XL Forum and the person was saying he could not remove the baffles even with a sledge hammer. He thought he had probably ruined the cat. converter.The suggestion was made to try and get some pre-'06 muffs (from e-Bay) and see if they would fit.
Go back to the XL Forum, Rubber Mount Section, 04/06 Stock Muffler Mod Post.Yours doesn't have a cat so mod them. Read the last entry first it has all the mods, then read the rest of the post and check the Pictures. I'm still very happy with the results.
PS: You probably already know the above, so disregard. Oops, See you here or there.
