Hole Saw Exhaust Mod HELP!

Hello

I have a 2012 Roadstar 1700. I am attempting the hole saw mod and have run into trouble. I can't pull the baffle out. Here is the run down on what I have done so far. I used hole saw and cut through the first 2 plates. Removed the end cap. Now I am grabbing the center pipe and pulling and wiggling back and forth but it won't come loose. Any ideas? The pipe moves a lot but will not rotate in the muffler.

It's tack welded to a thin wall on the back side. So it has to be pulled thru it. I used a slid-hammer, but some grab it with vise grips
and twist it out but they will come out.

Thanks. I will work on it. I have tried vise grips. I think the remaining plate around the center pipe is keeping me from moving enough to break weld. I'll get it eventually.

Ok I got it done and am really liking the sound. Way deeper and decently loud. Took a little work though. I ended up using a slide hammer that I use to pull bearings. Beat the center pipe in to break weld. Then used slide hammer to beat it out. Took a long time on the top pipe. On the lower exhaust pipe it came right out. Funny how that works.
