Anyone have any comments on different size baffles for the Kerker 4-1.

It is on a CB750k5 and I have pod filters. There is no baffle in there right now and i like the sound but it is super loud. I have founf three sizes of baffle, 1.5", 2" and race. I would like to keep it on the loud side.

My thought is that since I am at high altitude that I want as much air in and out as possible and that a small baffle will limit the air out.

Does anyone have a race baffle installed? If so, is it quieter than no baffle?

Thanks for any inmput.

I have the 1.5" baffle in my kerker and it is loud enough to make me smile, but not loud enough to get the neighbors pissed at me (that is what smokey burnouts are for). I have run the race baffle in the past and it is really no different than an open megaphone.

I think your logic is flawed as to the small baffle and air in and out but I am too lazy to explain why....however there is such a thing as too little backpressure.

Thanks for the input. My logic may be flawed. It really was just a guess. My knowledge of the internal combustion engine is that it needs air, gas and a spark.

I may try the 1.5"

Thanks
