should I take the Baffle out
 
I have the Jet Pro that is made for the Stadium FG, I was thinking of taking the silencer out.Would I gain anything or would I loose my back pressure since this baffle and the pipe almost all the way is huge......

what baffle??? you mean the silencer at the end thats welded on? If thats what your talking about i wouldnt butcher it. you'll have to get an unsilenced pipe.

well there are to rivots that hold it in, I was going to try it without it and if i did not like it I could rivot it back together.

You can remove the rivets and replace them with M4 screws all you need to do is tap the holes in the insert. You'll need to do this sooner or later anyway to change out the insulation inside. I tried running it both ways but didn't see any real gains to running it without the silencer it just made it louder.

well if there is no loss in performance then I guess it would not hurt, plus louder is better......:D

also as highspeeddirt said about threading the rivot holes out , if you want the wadding back in it just head over to a dirtbike shop and you can buy new packing ..
