I see the racer has a baffle welded in with 3 spot welds .
if you remove the end cap, the welds are accessible. Normally a 5mm drill bit will remove the weld.

I know with some akrapovic pipes the baffle is welded in same manner.

Any my advice or results from others before I remove mine ?

If you do decide to remove them, I'd suggest getting a proper 'spot weld drill bit'.

They are much harder than a normal HSS drill bit and have a point designed not to wander, and to remove the weld without cutting right through to the other side of the metal so don't leave a hole.

That’s a good idea. I am surprised no one has replied or removed their baffle. I mean the bike sounds good Oem, but a bit more won’t hurt.

It has been done. I would like to do it but I don’t have the patience 😂
