Never had Cobra pipes so it would help to post a few pics of the baffle & inside the pipe.

In one if the custom pipes I had, the fiberglass sheet was wrapped into the baffle and taped to make is easy to put in. Can you pull out the glass, wrap the baffle and re-insert? Can you post a side profile of your bike so I can see the look of your new pipes.

Thanks! AJ

I decided to take out the top slip-on baffle also. Surprise, it came out easily and whole in one piece. Started the engine and immediately noticed the sound was louder, had a tinny sound to it, and eventually did become obnoxious. Rode to McD's and around the college. Sounded loud and good at higher RPM's and faster speeds, and when shifting to a higher gear. But overall, I like the baffles in. I hope I can put them back in. That bottom slip-on is going to be difficult. Otherwise, I must ride with at least 1 earplug; whereas before I did not.

Went to Lowes, got a 1 & 3/8 inch wood dowel, put the dowel thru the messed up fiberglass, and straightened out the inside of the fiberglass. I was then able to put the metal baffle inside the fiberglass, and put both baffles back inside my exhaust. A decent amount of work to satisfy curiosity, but now I know more about bike exhaust and the use of baffles. And I spent less than $4 to put things back the way they were. So now I'm back the way I was and do not have to wear any earplugs. Voila, I am now the man to ask about all things slip-on and baffley.
