Default Leo Vince exhaust baffle removal

For those that have the Leo Vince I made a before and after video of what the bike sounds like with the baffles remove. Keep in mind this is on the SBK model on a 2008 Kawasaki ZZR600.

Note- There appears to be a one way screw on the bottom of the exhaust tip which can be unscrewed with a pair of pliers or vise grips. Do not loosen the screw but remove it completely. Then take some needle nose pliers and tug. Mine came out easily but many have had to use some force.

Anyway here is the video with the baffle in

Now with the baffle out

Not bad. Does it sound alright when you give it some throttle?

Does that hurt the performance any? Been thinking about doing this on my akrapovic system.

I didn't notice a difference. I mean then again it is at the exit of the exhaust system too.

Thanks. It sounds deeper as if I have a header as well and not just a can.
