short baffles are the most restrictive of all.the exhaust can only exit the pipes through the openings in the baffle(can opener).the more openings the more exhaust flows outward.i thought shorter was better also,not the case.

Proof that baffles in drag pipes is like trying to fart around a cork!

These HP+ baffles are not very restrictive at all compared to the can opener 4" ones I tired first.

Did a 20 mile ride and plug check with a CV pilot jet 48 main 170 no needle shims and a NOKK needle golden brown in color ..... looked good to me.

Now if i can just get to lower jug gaskets to stop leaking!

well mr rick, great comment, reminded me of a joke about a monkey, pig, cork and two very poor fellows trying to make some money.

truth told, rather try and fart around a cork than in a space suite!

You obviously haven't run the HP+ baffles from Khromewerks in them if you've run dragpipes at all. Or is that just a generalized comment based on comments from others?
