Have heard drilling your baffles is an inexpensive way to increase the sound of your bike. My problem is the only people I have heard that have done that modification are 1300 X owners. They seem thrilled at the results. Suggestions?

Drilled mine when first got the bike. Since have different pipes but yes you can drill your stockers. Very much the same as the link provided. Start with a few holes about 3/8" and ride. See how you like the sound. Want more, add more holes or get a bigger drill bit, 1/2" You can also drive a rod thru the center baffle and go louder.

DITTO to smokin joe.

Drilled mine, then routed out the space between the holes,
then punched out the baffles. Maybe some day I'll spring
for aftermarket pipes, but,... mine sound great now:
not too loud unless I crack her open!

Send me a note if you want a pic from the back.

good to hear that some 1800 riders have done the drilling thing. I kept running into 1300 riders who had done the deed. Knew I wasn't the first one who wanted to be louder. Send pictures please. [email protected]
