Feast your eyes folks. You won't often see metal this pretty coming out of a shop as shoddy as mine. Hidden as it now is, I am quite proud of this fabbed part. Sadly, I had to shave a bit off the top of the washer in order to get it to fit inside the muffler due to the affore mentioned "four inch setback bungle". It's in the pipe now, probably until Jesus comes back because try as I might, I can't get the thing to come out again.
Sadly for you, I have no picture of the finished article. So I found one on the internet!
Fig 12: Demoto's baffle looks just like this one (coutesy of welderboy1276), except it doesn't look like a filthy metal turd.
I installed a nylon lock nut on the shaft, not an acorn nut as shown above on welderboy1276's noble effort, and I hope the nylon doesn't melt. welderboy1276 doesn't have to worry about his acorn nut melting, because it's made of metal. Also, it's probably laying on the road somewhere, because any bolt on a motorcycle not locked somehow tends to shake free eventually.
My adjustable baffle will now allow me to tune my exhaust pipe to a more tolerable level of scavenging, hopefully allowing me to put still more superbike pretty-boys to shame on the blacktop.
Oh yes, and one more thing. You remember that inspiration I was lacking at the beginning of the article. Well ladies and gentlement, I was standing in my garage a short time after finishing this project when I recieved an epiphany, a revelation, a vision of things to come...
...stay tuned folks.
