vstar classic 1100 exhaust mufllers

Hello ,

Im a New member to this site .
Just got a 2007 Yamaha Vstar 1100 a few weeks ago and am tuning and cleaning the bike by myself for fun and learning at the same time.
I noticed that in the mufflers I have some loose baffles. Probably normal but in each muffler there is a baffle that is loose . I tried to hold the baffle while the engine is on with a plier to see if the sound would be affected ..but nothing. I tried to pull the baffle out but impossible it looks like its just the way they are ?????
Not sure if this makes sense unless you have a vstar stock exhaust pipe?????

Anybody ??

thanks

Phil

LOL.... lots have 1100's......I don't understand what you're trying to do......so.....what exactly are you trying to do?

Here's a link to the V Star 1100 Wiki Knowledge Base Exhaust section. Maybe that'll help....

And mine came with after market exhaust, so sorry I can't help ya out either. But unless they are rattling around in the pipes, what's the problem?

Haha ha not trying to do.anything ...yet .
If you look inside the mufflers there is a long baffle that is loose ...I think it should be straight I took I pair of plier and pushed it back (it took quite some force) and now it's straight when you look in both muffler all you see is the hole of the baffle because it's no longer at 45 % touching the insude bottom of the the muffler ...that's all
It's a 2007 classic

My 1100 currently has the stock exhaust with the baffling removed & it sounds great! No rattle, not obnoxiously loud either, just a nice hot rod sound when you open that throttle! I recommend you remove the baffling soon especially if it's already loose or rattling. . although you may need to re-jet the carburetors afterwards to accommodate the increased air flow.. Someone else here can advise you better than me but I believe it will improve efficiency, decrease a lil weight, sound better, & be cheaper than purchasing a new exhaust

Did you remove them yourself? Re-jet ..not sure I want to mess up with the carburetors on my own .
Got to see what it involves before taking everything down :}}}}}

Thanks Vee twins

There is almost zero increased air flow when you remove the baffles. The restriction is all in the head pipe which is barely an inch or so in diameter. So no performance gain unless you replace everything...and obviously no need to change jets unless you add a full exhaust either.

All removing baffles does is make noise....all bark with zero bite.
