no prob...I just removed the baffle and went out for a ride...better hit at the bottom...did get louder. I will be carring the baffler with me and an allen wrench to install if I am in a noise sensitive area. As far as being more powerfull than a wr250...no comparison. I also own a 05 crf250x...both great bikes to be sure, but the diff between a 250 and a 450 4stroke is huge. Trail riding and riding with my kids the 250 is great....here in No Cal we have very big hills. When I am riding hard with the boys on long steep terrain I would not consider a 250. That being said the 450 requires a bit more attention and is 20+ #'s heavier....if I had to pick one..it would be the 450. (I am 6-4, 230)
Good luck! Let me know which you buy!
