I just acquired this bike, and they drilled holes into the baffles and it does that popping noise. I cant stand it. So, If I pull the baffles out of the pipes, do I need to do jets? Or can you just adjust the idle and air/fuel screw? Also would like to put a k&n filter as well.

If you put in a K&N, you will have to rejet. Period.

Pulling the baffles will only make the bike sound like a loud wet fart. It is not pleasant.

My bike pops on decel all the time. I have come to love/embrace it. Maybe you can find a set of baffles here (a lot of people remove them) or you might consider new pipes. My son just picked up an '12 C50 with Cobras on it. I must tell you that it sounds really nice! It has a nice deep, throaty, rumble. Not obnoxiously loud, but certainly not quiet either.
