Question Good ole exhaust question

Howdy everyone. I'm new here, I just purchased a 07 jackpot about a month ago. Got about 300 miles on it before winter and ice hit us. I did my searches on here and could not find this particular issue. I have the swept exhaust I believe and letting off the throttle makes it sound like a Jake brake, but my thing is the hole on the back of both pipes? Which also cause black/brown stain on my swing arm. Here are some pics.

Looks like baffles were removed and screw that holds baffle in place was left out.

I was afraid of that. Thanks, I know I can't do anything about the baffles but what about sealing the holes? The spot drives me nuts

I took the baffle cones out of the srvt pipes on my highball once. it was way too loud, popped all the time, and was very sluggish.
If, by some Christmas miracle, you manage to find some baffles to put back in there, it should make the noise on deceleration a lot better. it should also help give you a little more power too.

Put a screw and a bolt in it. Should keep the spot from forming.

What pipes are these, so I know what baffles to look for? I thought about doing the bolt thing but was unsure about it. Was there a bolt there from factory? I just dont want to ruin the paint and its ugly

Default screw filler

get the correct fitting screw in 304 stainless, it will never rust! an easy check is a magnet as 304 stainless is not magnetic. get a lo profile button head style, good chrome can last a while as well. you can do the washer trick in the pipe end to cut popping + make the bike run better or get baffles made for those pipes, you only make noise and loose lo-midrange power without some restriction

I'll look into those thanks. I have not done anything to the bike the way you see it in the picture is the way I bought it.
