  • Drilled holes in first baffle - Illegal or legal?

    Looking at a bike, haven't seen it yet but they tell me the first baffle is drilled. Is this legal?

  • #2
    No.

    Any deviation from the approved emissions standards or modification resulting in exceeding prescribed noise limits is illegal.

    Chance of getting caught? Low to medium.

    Inconvenience of getting caught and inspection to remove yellow sticker? Medium to high.
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

      first baffle could very easily be the catalytic converter.......

      odds of getting stung for it are stupidly low its not funny but if they found out somehow and put the lack of a cat on the defect then you'll be up for the cost of a genuine system.
      Every one has a story.....

                  [MENTION=8605]MADOGA[/MENTION] Might pay to use the sarcasm font around newbies; it's a fair question for someone who doesn't know.

                    I've given up on sarcasm, I've convinced myself that I can be even more annoying with direct answers to the best of my knowledge and it still adds to my post count.

                      So to make the bike street legal, what sort of cost would I be looking at? Would I need to replace the muffler with another stock muffler to remain LAMS approved? The bike is a 2011 Hyosung Gt250R btw

                        Dude, don't worry about it. Seriously. If you have to take it over the pits, get a stock one then.

                        Oh, a Hyo 250 you say... yes, keep it as quiet as possible, especially if it is an aftermarket can

                        Srs again, don't worry about it.

                            'tis only my opinion but there's plenty of bikes out there with baffles drilled out/aftermarket cans (me included) that have never been stung.

                            You may however get asked if there's anything wrong with your bowels given the wet fart sound that a Hyo makes, that is even more pronounced with baffle removed/aftermarket can

                              If it's a hyo 250 it's LAMS legal anyway there's no restrictor that can be removed to make it illegal.

                              It's purely noise and emissions.

                              Pretty sure there's no cat on the hyo, so if you manage to get pinged you just have to make it quiet for the pits.
