I'd like to squeeze what little I can out of my 78 puch maxi, but I really don't have the cash or knowledge for a bore kit, rejetting, or anything of the such. My Ped is stock, MINUS the air box, I just have a high-flow aftermarket air filter.
However I read that I could simply remove these "restrictors" that run perpendicular in the baffle, and gain a some power.

But I also hear that back pressure needs to be tuned and what not, so would this really help? I don't want to hack my baffle only to find that it kills my acceleration, or anything like that. Would it require me to tune the carb? That complicates things too much for my busy self.
Has anyone ACTUALLY tried this?
