Custom made pipes with internal baffles

I am thinking about making some pipes and putting in some 8 inch or 12 inch baffles in the stock diameter pipes. Similar to the ones in the pictures.

I was wondering if this could cause any problems and If I could run it without rejetting for awhile.

What have you done with the intake? How restrictive would the baffles be?

The intake is stock and the baffles would just be universal bolt on ones from like jp cycles.

You might be alright. I'd run it for a little while and check the spark plugs to see what's going on.

The only thing is I would be cutting and welding the pipes so if it didn't work out I would be sol.

These motors are like any other, nothing more than an air pump. You can't push out any more than you pull in. With the restrictive stock intake, changing the exhaust is going to have a limited effect. With stock style baffles, you should be ok, but check those plugs. They'll tell you if you're running too rich or too lean.

I'm looking at some 8 inch drag specialties ones. The smallest part of the pipe is 3/4 of an inch.

That pic doesn't really say much about how restrictive it is. You gotta look down the pipe to get a better idea. Are you leaving the goat belly in?
