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!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.
