Don't do it. The baffle is also attached to the cat and is wrapped in fiberglass. It will not come out at all. Unless you can find a way to remove the tightly packed fiberglass mat. Had to cut the pipe open just to see what we were dealing with. Spare pipes were on hand to replace the sacrificed pipe haha

Welcome to the crew! You might want to check out American Custom Exhaust. They have a website. They fixed up our stock mufflers so they work great. Flow and sound good.
Ride safe.

How is that any different than any of the Harley stock "bullet" style exhausts from the past? They have been like that for a lot of years. Most people buy slip-ons.

I just got done talking to the parts guy at my local Harley dealer this past Saturday and here was the question. On my 2011 Heritage do the mufflers have baffles? Answer was no that the only bikes that have baffles are the big bikes like the dresser all away thru the 2015's. So I guess who knows. Were is Dave 63 we need his expert opinion!!!!!

Don't need Dave on this one... That parts guy is a mo-Ron!
There is no way they would meet fed standards leaving factory with "open" pipes.

I have a '14 Street Bob and I am 1/2 tempted to try and modify my stock exhaust for a deeper sound. I have heard mixed reviews on this. The dealership said it will screw my bike up due to the lack of back pressure yet I have heard other Harley owners saying it is harmless. Any advice or info?

Ask your dealership why escaping exhaust gasses would need back pressure to escape more effectively, and how a more efficient exhaust would screw things up. Contrary to popular belief, no 4-stroke engine or exhaust system needs exhaust back pressure.

I talked to a differnt guy at the dealership and he said "rip'em out, won't hurt a thing." I'm looking into it just need to find someone that has actually done it or that has a set of stock pipes they don't want. I'm kinda afraid of messin up my only set of mufflers.
