The AR11005DB baffle is perfect for my Tec 2 into 1. I
did cut about 50mm off before installation.
I went here:
Jaap was the person I dealt with. Very helpful and
he spoke English.
I had the part within 2 weeks. Expensive,
but the bike runs great without being too loud for
Thanks for the tip to cut out 50mm before installing..... How does the sound compare to the supplied baffles? I don't want them to be too loud after spending all those money.
The new baffle is 150mm long. Because it's also wider than the normal one it won't all fit inside, so it has to be cut to an overall length of around 50mm.
The sound is totally different. Louder than the normal one but nowhere as loud as going without baffles. At low throttle openings the sound is deep with a nice low rumble, especially on the overrun. On opening the throttle it becomes a lot louder, but it doesn't have those metallic, raspy, harsh overtones of open Arrows.
You'll get the stock ones out - just be patient. You said you got it to move about 1/16" ? Check to see if the cir clip groove is damaged from where the clip was removed. Other than that, try squirting a bit of WD-40 around the outside of the baffle, get a grip on is with some locking pliers and try a few gently taps while trying to twist it to see if you can break it free. Take your time and it will come out.
I am planning to cut them to 70mm, so they are not too loud to the wife's ears.
What do you guys use to cut the baffles? Pipe cutter?
If your silencer is the same as mine you won't be able to fit those 70mm in there before the baffle touches the internal gubbins. This is because the new baffle is larger in diameter. The original baffle tube fitted inside the internal pipe but this one won't. 50mm is the maximum I could fit.
I used an ordinary hacksaw but you can use a radial cutter as well. De-burr the edges well.
