Have '04 Softail with Vance and Hines big shot staggards--I want to remove the quiet baffles and install the standard baffles BUT the quiet baffles will not come out. V&H say that there are set screws on the back side of the pipes but there are no set screws on mine as there are only empty holes where each set screw would have been if they had been installed. I have sprayed the heck out of the inside with WD40 as per V&H instructions.

depending on the pipe stlye they can be a real pain. What i usually do is take a long pair of needlenose pliers and put them in the a groove in the baffle and spread the pliers. Then have a buddy hold them tight and pull/jerk with the pliers hold in tension to keep the pliers open as well... It has work many times for me,just a little hard to explain.i have also had to resort to a slide hammer or dent puller, but this can ruin part of the baffle.....
