Here are some videos I made of my Stainless R-77. One with baffle in, one without. Might be in my head, but even with baffle in I have the impression the front is lighter in first gear, just seems to float above the ground on hard acceleration as before I had to cut the throttle and thrash it right after to get the front to lift just a bit...Otherwise by the seat of my pants, I can't really see a big difference in performance (with or without baffle). Just sounds ridiculously good.
Speedo great video's I like how you did them - much better than many I have seen on U-tube and the pipe sounds great. I like it more without the baffle.
Thanks man. Yeah without baffle definitely sounds meaner and more like a true race bike. With the baffle it sounds kind of a mix between a Yoshi - no baffle and the stock exhaust. The big difference without the baffle is that its louder at idle and above, and more popping on compression. Just sounds great, though if I was planning on a 2 hour highway trip, I'd put the baffle in, cause the last gear sounds like the 3rd gear with the stock exhaust at 120km/h Either way, the sound in the videos don't do it justice, it really has a very high quality sound.
