Good info, I am going to leave the baffle out for a while and see if it adjusts. I have only ridden it around the neiborhood a few times since the install. I'll be putting some miles on it this week (on vacation and spotted some trails in the area
)so mabey the ecm will adjust and the pipes will set in place so that the backfiring will lesson.
