I'm considering removing the baffles from my 2015 Gunner which is fitted with a Stage 1 X Bow exhaust. Will this effect or improve performance?

It'll be louder but you'll lose a little torque. Louder is not always faster...

On the steel frame bikes it should actually improve your overall HP. I don't believe you will lose any torque either. The factory Xbow's are very restrictive.

Rip those suckers out Mat- bolt on the swing arm side and an Allen key nut on the inside- undo it then grasp the lip of the baffles without some long nose pliers and pull evenly around the rim, increase with force as necessary.

I've considered the same thing. waiting a bit to see if my baffles burn in a little since they are brand new. plus im waiting until i get a power commander or such, just don't wanna lose the torque.

on a side note, considering selling my never used once brande new Gunner, stock black exhaust. thought someone would want them to port instead of porting their factories. would save hundreds!
