Baffle Removal side-effects?

Hi there,

after doing some research and seeing friends do this successfully, i decided to try it out too. I drilled some holes into the baffle of my suzuki gs500e and tried it out already, sounds gorgeous and still pulls well. Just wondering if there is any side effects this may have? It is restricted to 33bhp as well.

Holy Baffles

So you have gained some noise for your neighbours and drivers who can hear,side effects could be running on a weaker mixture and getting too hot in the summer months around town.Being an air cooled engine and crap petrol we have today i would be keeping a check on them spark plug colours for a weak mixture which could wear the engine.I hope you don`t fit or have a K&N air filter fitted or worse still no air filter.:shock:

Baffles

Yeah its got air filters, will keep a check on the sparks too! Again the baffle isn't completely gone, just got a couple of holes in it, sounds nice and growly and not overly-loud.
