To answer your question, yes. You can just rip it out and connect the pipes with flex tubing.
I did and was very unhappy with the performance afterwards. Lost in my opinion too large an amount of power.
I have since shaved the ears and put on aftermarket pipes and most important, rejetted the carbs. Bike runs better than ever now.
I can't say for sure, but if you degoat only, I think rejetting the carbs may help to bring back some of the power lost.
Remember, the premuffler is essentially an expansion chamber and crossover allowing each cylinder to see 2 mufflers instead of one, so back pressure will be higher without the premuffler, hence, poorer performance.
