NJ state inspection

Want to remove the baffles but dont know the grief it will give me at inspection time.They checked for baffles at inspection 2 weeks ago but I have talked to people that say they have never checked for baffles when they went.Could some fellow new jerseyans weigh in on their experience.Thanks

Don't know the laws for NJ inspection, but what about just drilling them out?

Technically they would still be there, just not as restrictive.

Inspections usualy are for safety and emmissions..not loudness, so not sure why they would check unless you have a sound level law.

You could pick up a set of spare mufflers for inspection only and swap em at inspection time. I happen to have a set of stockers....

inspection

They did check for baffles and I did drill the baffles but I thought taking them out would give me a bettrt sound.I am looking for a used pair of pipes before I remove them for inspection time.This state sucks

All they checked when I got mine inspected were the lights and the horn. If they even looked at the baffles, I completely missed it. the whole process took all of about 1 minute, never started the bike.

All they checked with me was paperwork, lights/blinkers & horn. Took them longer to find the stickers for the plate. And of course, they were so "happy" to do this with a smile..............LOL

I still laugh when I think about the inspection they did on mine. Rode around the lot once so they could see the steering and brakes worked. Checked the lights, signals and horn. Then he asked what the weight was, and I thought it was about 530 pounds. He looks at the sticker by the handlebars and comes up with over 900 pounds.

The paperwork took longer than the inspection.
