stock muffler question

chuck russo /

i have a 87 golden bullet lx and i was looking at the muffer and there is some kind of a baffle? and i pulled it off and it looks like it would make it a strait pipe and im buying a new coil for it today and them im gonna test the muffer thing

do u all think it will add more low end? and a lil top end

im also putting a 25 tooth sproket on it

Pulling the baffle really doesn't add much power...it's noticeable, but only barely so...unless the damn thing was clogged when you pulled it, then you will notice a difference, yes.

I hate the baffle in a stock Tomos muffler, it clogs up very quickly and cuts into your performance, and is a right pain in the arse to clean....so I run without one.

The best benefit to running no-baffle tho...is that more agressive exhaust note...I like that, a lot.

My Puch Maxi is loud as hell without the baffle... like going down the road tossing a box of quarter sticks out from under you every couple of seconds.....

Well, pulling the baffle doesn't make a Tomos exceptionally loud, no...what it does do, is lower the exhaust note and give it a "harder" sound.

Goes from putt-putt-putt to kind of a bassy chugga-chugga noise.

It sounds neat, really it does.

I always heard that a 2 stroke needed a muffler for back pressure and compression in order to perform correctly and that a straight pipe would make you lose power low and top end, (even if it sounds cool to you)

For some reason pulling the baffle in the stock Tomos muffler doesn't do this, probably cause the deflectors and alla that you need to create backpressure are part of the exhaust design further up in there....you would have to actually look up inside a Tomos exhaust to see what I mean by that.

The baffle seems to be simple noise reduction, but at the cost of constant clogging, and the power loss and extra wear that comes with trying to run with a clogged exhuast.
