How can i take the baffles completely out

Gt an 86 vn750 is there anyway to take the baffles out of the exhaust with out cutting anything off..i see the 2 welds near the end of the exhaust. If i drill them out will hat free it up to take out or is it as wide as the expanded part?

I have a set that was gutted. If you want them let me know.
They look OK other than a patch on the inside where they had a hole before I removed the baffles.

It was actually pretty easy to do..i took both heat shields off, then loosened the clemps on the exhaust(clamps closed to the rear of the exhaust). Next loosen the the bolts on both sides holding the exhaust to the frame(they r nut and bolt and right by te center of the rear wheel on both sides..the rear of the exhaust should now slide off, u may have to wiggle them to get them off all the way. After u have them off u will have to drill out 2 welds right near the end of the exhaust tips. Then u will have to bust out the baffle on the front side of the part u took off and after that u can use a piece of re-bar and and hammer to bang out the cylinder shapped baffle that is pretty much the length of the pipe u r holding..it may take a beating to get them out but they will come out eventually them reverse ur steps to put the pipes back on.

I left the screen in the front of the muffler in place and pulled everything out the back.
