Does anyone know how to remove a baffle on a stock 81 gl1100 exhaust. Just to give it alittle more rummble?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^what he said... I believe I read in one of the forums about drilling the rivet out that holds the baffle in place. Was I dreaming again? I'm also wondering if this might give a small gain in MPG if my 30 year old exhaust is getting restrictive....

Help! :D

Fella's it seems to me that someone removed the baffles on this site and claimed he got better gas milage after he did so, it was mentioned on the milage posting here somewhere here...I remember they were talking about gas milage.. :D
