Stock muffler, baffle removal tips and is it worth it?

Thanks, i just recieved a 94 Warrior and want to tinker a bit. I remember the old Hondas you could remove the baffles and it made them throatier( if thats a word) sounding. Just wondering. Please post some must do ideas that are cheap. Maybe carb tricks or muffler, or air box.

dont take it out it overheats the combustion chamber and you lose midrange power its not a good idea

Very confused, wouldn't the baffle create back pressure which in turn causes heat? I am just wonderi not questioning you. I would think a free flowing pipe would increase flow and power. Dragsters run open exhaust for power, why not a four wheeler? Thanks more thoughts please

You know yall saying this and that about the combustion chamber gettin overheated from taking the baffle out well my opinion is its bull, if anything it lets the motor breathe better, u do loose back pressure but the warrior has a tank for a motor and that thing can really take the pressure, ive had this 95 for over a year and have run no baffle and it has easily taken on other warriors with baffles in and leaves them, plus it sounds better, no major power gains, but it does sound better and just a lil better..........just my opinion......if ya dont like it........So sue me already

Taking out the baffle gives it a little better sound but not the "throatie" sound you are looking for.

gives a kinda popping growling sound not a throaty deep mellow sound. if you pair that with some air box holes I think it helps a good bit. You could feel the air blowing through mine while standing 15 feet behind it if you goosed it a little.

some guy on another thread said that you need to have the back pressure that the sa gives you cuz it keeps the valves from slamming shut then they dont let enough exhaust out and it overheats the comb. chamber
you have to adjust valves more often wo it

i had mine out but then i put it back in

Then wouldnt every aftermarket pipe make your engine blow up? you could roll a golf ball through my cobra. Dont remove all the baffles though, just take out the end cap/spark arrestor. If you remove the baffles it will sound like a dirt track race car screaming across your yard making your windows rattle and your neighbors scream, kinda like my POS cobra.

I would think that it would heat up the combustion chamber due to burning lean - unless you rejet it richer. I suppose you could keep it lean, melt the piston, then have a little bit more fun tinkering a little bit further in!
