Anyone have issues replacing the baffles in the vance and hines exhaust for the 15 stryker? Got the old ones out the new ones won't go in. Now I'm stuck with a vance and hines with no baffles way too loud to ride.

Yup been there when I went from quiet to competition baffles it was a challenge. I ended up using a 2” brass wire wheel and I have a flexible extension that is 12” long for my drill a few passes then I fired it up to blow out the carbon deposits, and the new baffles fit in tightly perfect. Never looked back!

Probably going to have to get a shop to do it. It went in about half way and jammed then tore coming out. I'm just defeated right now. Debating if I need to spend 700 on a new exhaust.

Just the packing tore? It looks to be way too much on there. Honestly with the quiet baffles my opinion only I removed my packing and just ran the baffles. Packing does quiet it down some but not as much as you would think. I’d try removing it and install them , check sound before I would pay a shop or think of spending 7 bills. Are you close to PA?

i changed my V&H from stock to "quiet" . I need use a 5 pound slide hammer to remove. Even so I bent the retraction rod and need to repair. PLUS the old baffles left behind baked on debris on the interior of the cans. I used a "flapper" on a drill to clean the pipe interior (about 2 hrs) > I lubricated the exterior of the new baffles with high-end-heavy grease. They went in snug giving challenge to lining up the secure screw
