Bought this '07 FLHTCU this past summer. Its got SE mufflers, no other upgrades, Stage one, etc, just the pipes. They are a tad too quiet for my tastes, but on the other hand I don't want drag pipes either, just a little more rumble. The SE P/N, 80536-07 Looking up the pipe I can see 4 allen head bolts that I assume hold the baffle in place. If I were successful in getting the bolts out it appears that that in order for the baffle to come out the end cap also needs to come off and I think that is held on by a couple of pop rivets. Am I correct in these assumptions? And once the baffle is out, then what? Not sure what the baffle is going to look like once its out. Hack saw off a couple inches? or what?

My '07 Electra S.E. slip on's seem to be different than yours. Mine are held in by the pop rivets (I have screws), and don't have the bolts in the end. I suggest removing the slip on's and drill out the rivets and remove the end caps. Then you should be able to tell if the baffles are held in by the bolts. If you notice photos in the att., you'll see the small end is slightly flaired. This flair is pushed onto the inlet end of the muffler and requires a Sharp blow from a HARD object like a jack handle or piece of pipe. A broomstick won't do it.
If your baffles are like the ones pictured, don't cut any off length, instead drill more holes, or open the bent down piece (looks like a flute opening). My packing is attached to the shell of the slip on, not the baffle itself. Did I mention, the baffles are hard to break loose?

Thanks, went on Cycle Shacks web site. Lots of baffles, none to replace this particular P/N. I'll give it a go as you suggested.
