Welcome aboard and be sure to post up pic’s when you get a chance. I also pulled my baffles and the sound is great. With that said, I just got off the phone with Cobra and they were pretty insistent that I put them back in.

What reasoning did Cobra give you?

The engine needed the back pressure. If you want a technical answer, then I suggest you call them. I just like the sound much better.

My understanding was that I would lose low end torque. The reason I called them was that I believe my 4th and 5th gear range could be better. When I roll on the throttle, it seems to be a little sluggish. They didn’t mention specifically that it would hurt anything.

Picked it up today. WOW. Very nice even in the rain. The takeoff on this bike takes a little gettin used to. Dealer screwed up my pipes with chrome instead of black. BUT when I saw it I fell in love with them. After them discounting the pipes and fuel controller they were even nicer looking. Rained its A$$ off today but took it out anyway holy cow that matte finish picks up the Dirt. Looks like my IH Scout now after a day on the rocks.

And for those in missouri. Cant say enough about the dealer in Chanute Kansas. ((((word of warning the MOSHP is stationed in that town so watch your speed)))) They were a joy to work with even after the little SNAFU. At the end of the day with pipes and controller(at full price, and since it was kansas you have to pay sales tax at time of purchase) I would have paid 500 more than the local Dealers bone stock.

Any suggestions on the motor break in from experience. Hate to kill it after I just got it. The dealer really had no idea on the appropriate break in. Book says 300 miles how close is this to real life.

Here we go again

Ahhh the break in... So many opinions. Personally, I go on what the manual tells me. Slow take offs, vary speed and RPMs for the first 300. Many say ride it fast and hard from day one. I think and I am not very smart so this could be wrong, that riding it hard from day one has it's short term benefits but going by the manual helps ensure engine longevity. But like I said, not very smart when it comes to engines, I tend to err on the side of caution.
