Has anyone removed the exhaust baffle on the XR650L? I did so on my XR200R and the improvement was amazing! There are 2 tack welds which hold the baffle in place on the 650L. I realize you could blow the $250 on an FMF, but it couldn't be any more open than the stock without the baffle...

It depends on whether you care about what it sounds like. The xr650L, with the baffle removed, sounds quite horrible. Much worse than any after market pipe or insert.

What insert (baffle replacement), and\or exhaust do you recommend?
