Can any one tell me the pros and cons on drilling out baffels on stock exhaust. I have a 2012 Victory Vegas and was thinking about doing this for a better sound.

#1 con is you lose all the designed back-pressure and that equals a minor loss of power... if that doesnt bother you so much then its all PRO!

If you buy a Bassani, Vance & Hines or any other reputable type system then they are engineered to sustain a certain amount of back-pressure, keep the engine performance and get the sound all together.

I wouldn't do it, i thought about it but bought bassani pipes instead and it sounds awesome. I may be buying different pipes soon and will be selling mine if you're interested.Only been on the bike for about 2000 miles or so

If you're like me and can't afford pipes right now, DO IT! The stock cans are just soooooooooooo quiet. I went ahead and removed the cans from my Judge and unplugged the O2 sensors. I'm good until I have enough saved for an RPW Big Slash (and Torque Tubes, tuner, and on and on and on lol). Loss of low end torque (minimal) but I can live with that for now.

Pros, none that I can think of.
Cons, it will make riding noisier and more tiring for long runs.
It will likely cost you a tiny bit of low end power.
