Lol... grab that OEM stock support bar that you don't use any more, put it in a crack right behind the pipes, put a hook around it and around the 12 gauge wire on the baffle, have somebody hold the bike and grab a decent sized hammer :D... just saying..

Oh and another beer too doesn't hurt :rolleyes: or three... tequilla too...

I used some thicker speaker wire, like 12 gauge speaker wire for my hook... worked good actually, but I it's more about that leverage though... anything with thicker gauge wire than a hanger (some have gotten that to work though, but some break the wire too... )

Warm up the bike a little bit too...

Well I have to accept the fact that I do not have the proper tools here at my house.

I don't know if this would work but why not hook the baffle, tie the wire to a telephone pole or something like that and instead of beating on something why not jump on the bike and ride it out?
Or do you think the tire will just spin?

I think you would damage the pipes because of the angle that the baffle needs to come out at. If the tire was to start spinning, then there is no way your hammering it out, it's in there for good.

Richard,
Are your saying they need to come out at a down angle? The same angle as the pipe?
I want to make sure I do it right myself!
I don't wan't to screw anything up.

Thanks for all the offers and help

Yes you have to pull them out at the same angle at the exhaust pipes. I can pull both mine out with a slide hammer with a hook on the end in a matter of moments. Are you planning on keeping them out or modifying and re-installing them?

The right job for the right tool, the right tool for the right job, do it right the first time, do no damage, go on to the next thing, a happy beer.

Beg, borrow, steal, rent
1. slidehammer with L hook
2. slidehammer with L hook
3. slidehammer with L hook
4. that was easy, time for beer

I KNOW YOU WANT DISASTER RSS!
If it does go bad then at least I can get the Sampson's or the V2'S. I wouldn't have this problem if I would have gotten one or the other in the first place!
That's how I look at it. Don't know if that's how the wife will look at it!:eek:

On a serious note:
I think it would work. LOL.
Tie the wire around the pole at the same angle as the pipe, ride the clutch a little, pull that bitch right out!

OR, take Mentals advice.:D

You know, this might be a good thing to try at INDY!!
If I do it I will record it.

Hopefully we won't have to have it in the "what not to do section"
Do we have one of those sections?:D

I used a spring hook and large vice grips. Hook it on one of the holes in the baffles and whack it with the hammer. Warming it up a little helps. When you get them out and if you plan to reinstall them, get a belt sander and sand the rings on the baffle. It will make it easier to yank them out in the future. Mine slide out easy now. I cut my baffles at the first ring.

I used a thick clothes hanger and made a hook on one end clamped vice grips on it and hammered them out . Clamp vice grips as tight as you can get em and hit vice grips with a hammer . Sanded the rings down befor they went back in . Drilled 3 holes in the restrictor plate in each baffle with 1/2 inch drill bit and drill press , sound alot better than they did befor the holes .
