I have debaffled my stock pipes.
The fuel consumption was 1:20 before debaffling.
Now it is 1:18
Why is that?
Is it because less pressure from the exhaust so my engine is running faster?
Do I now have more power?

Probably because you're "blipping" or revving the throttle a bit more?

What is 1:20 or 1:18? Is that like in the Bible? Or is it that you used to wait until 1:20 to fill the tank but now you have to fill it earlier at 1:18?

1:20 means that the bike is using 1 liter of fuel at 18 kilometers...
Its european ofcourse...I am living in Holland.
You use gallons and miles I realize now.
But the meaning is the same; my M800 is using more fuel after debaffling.
My brother did the same at his bike; a VL800 C.
He experienced the same so I don't think it is coincidence.

Unhappy debafeling issue

[SIZE="a"]I have a 99 Suzuki intruder and I have tried to debafle my pipes. My top one was kinda hard bit I was able to beat to weld. My issue is the broken pipe wont come out as if it has a lip deeper in the pipe. its 100% loose and can spin 360 but if u pull it its caught on the other end like trying to put and open umbrella through a doggy doo or window. How do I fix this?[/SIZE]

Hi Guys. I have a 99 intruder 1500......trying to debaffel it but even tho I have broken the welds, the baffle wont come out as if its hanging on to the other end. I didnt start on the bottom cause the top was so annoying and I dont want them both to do that. What do I do?

The 1500 is a completely different exhaust than the 800. The debaffle recommendations made here are for the 800 only. I am not sure how you would go about doing the same to the 1500 - it is not as common of a bike.

Might need to replace the pipes at this point, may be a lot easier and with better results.

2006 C50 exhaust question

If I went to something like the Cobra classic system on my otherwise un- modified C50, what kind of sound could I expect? Would I have to go with a fuel processor?
Same question, if I do the exhaust mod by drilling (4) 3/8" and (4) 3/16" holes in each baffle plate, do I need to go to a fuel processor with this mod?

Thanks in advance for any responses
