So I drilled my exhaust put, 4 holes 3/8 sounds decent enough dies down sound wise in 4th and 5th, to be expected, but it's popping a little, I saw something about a pims screw adjustment, but can't find any info on it, on a side not ould it be a ton louder if I remove the baffle pipe? I don't want it obnoxious, just a good sound
Thanks in advance

What your hearing was probably always there, but was muffled. You didn't state what bike you have . You'll want to open the PMS screws (Pre Mixture Screws) slightly to richen the air/fuel ratio to eliminate some popping. On a 650, they're on the right side under the tank, capped off from the factory with brass plugs which need to be removed. There is a TON of info out there regarding it. Exhaust sound is personal thing, I believe if you could change,modify,improve it with a drill bit, there wouldn't be companies that specialize in aftermarket exhaust (just my opinion).

The tank has to be removed and probably the air intake assembly (its been a while). Then drill a small hole in the brass plug, screw in a screw into that hole and pull it out. This is all assuming that it's stock and nobody has touched it . If you get that far, back them out a 1/4 turn at a time, put back together and test. Don't just run it with no air assembly on, because that changes everything.
