Last night I decided that since my 2015 M800 was 10 days old and had reached 450 miles on the clock, it was high time that I attacked the baffles with a 20mm drill bit.  

Sounds much, much better than stock. Next mod will be to drill the end plates. Warranties are over rated anyway and loud pipes save lives after all lol.

Good decision Salona, best 'free' mod you can do, will sound even better when you've done the end plates

Good move!, after a while YOU wont notice the difference but it IS louder than stock and cheaper than VH slash pipes! I didn't think it made a difference until the boys told me it did in france!

Don't bother with the end plates, makes very little difference. An attack on the internal plates is so much better, sounds good I bet.

I decided to go ahead and drill the end plates as well. The combination of drilled baffles and end plates sounds awesome!
I am a bit of a perfectionist so I decided to print a drilling jig on my 3d printer to make sure that the alignment of the holes in the end plates is spot on. After all the drilling was done I painted everything with Halfords Very High Temperature paint. I'm well chuffed with the results.

3D Printed jig in place


End Result

What a great way of doing the job. the holes being uneven is what usually makes it look very unprofessional, yours looks great.

 If anyone else is thinking of doing this mod then I will happily print off a template for them to use. All I ask is that they cover the postage cost.
