Cobra Swept: Putting cut baffles back in

I keep hearing about how hard it is to get them out. How difficult is it to put them back in once they are cut/trimmed? This would be on a new set before installation. Any advice? Thanks. Steve

why would you want to put them back in, to loud? never heard of anyone on this forum try to put the baffles back in.
Too loud or police checking for straight pipes. Several members have described how they have shortened them as well as drilled them but did not explain how difficult it was getting them back in or provide any tips on how to do it.
I have not put mine back in, but if i had to i would make sure they were squeeky clean for starters, i would even get an old bottle scrubbing brush and clean the inside of the pipes as well. You want as little soot or carbon residue around as possible. Lube the friction points with some very light weight lube, line up the screw hole and slide (tap) em in.

Let us know how you make out.
As difficult as mine were to remove...I'd say putting them back in, is near impossible..
Trying to line up the threaded screw hole would drive someone to
If you try it...good luck
I love the way mine sound without them...
I'd worry about being stopped for loud pipes when it happens..just my 2c
oh ok, what state are you in? I'm in TN and thankfully they have no law against that and we don't have to have turn signals either but we have to have at least one mirror. have you tried to put them in yet? Jay Cee's idea sounds pretty good with a light weight lube or wd40 or something, maybe even call Cobra and they might be able to give you a pointer or two, although I thought I read somewhere where they were against you taking the baffles out <back pressure issue> so they might get upset and not provide any help but it's worth a call to see what they say.
