Hi ...I am the proud owner of a 2016 c800 Boss, iv e had her from new and love her just as much as the day I picked her up! I've added a gothic arch sissy bar, front crash bars & a leather tank bib, I've drilled 6 holes in each exhaust tail for a little extra rumble but am thinking of knocking the baffles out for even more burble...could anyone tell me if the result is worth doing? Also any ideas on how I can give her a few more bhp? I've yet to see another c800 Boss out on the road so not sure if they didn't sell well or what but I am totally in love with mine! Look forward to hearing yr thoughts.

Hello Mr T  Newbie c800 Boss 852880 yes you can add a few BHP to your bike and yep knocking a bar through both baffle plates will deepen the sound drilling in the end of exhaust tends to make it a bit louder but not really deeper sound start new threads and you will get the answers you are looking for I'll answer anyways lol and im sure others will as well

Newbie c800 Boss 2773974287 Willie T and welcome.  I also own a BOSS and they are by far the nicest looking of all the 800's (not biased at all).  There is a thread somewhere on here about exhausts (worth a search and read) but in short, I've poked the baffles out of mine and drilled the end plate and it sounds brilliant.  If you want a nice noise thats not offensive - thats the way to go.

Many thanks Johnboss, I also think they look great and certainly get more comments on this bike compared to any other time I've owned!- I'm gonna poke out the baffles this week, did you do both baffles in each pipe or just one?

Good question!  Couple of things I should point out
1) I'm old and have shit memory
2) I have the engineering skills of a 2 year old
3) I sometimes claim others expertise as my own.

Now we've clarified that-  I honestly can't remember if both baffles are punched out, as Sim (Simbo on here) very kindly popped round to my house with his impressivley long drill and did the deed for me. Maybe Sim or others could comment on this?  but worth a read back on the 'Exhaust' section.

Just for the record though, I did drill the back plates all by myself!

I used a 1 inch bar about 2 foot long sharpened one end on an angle grinder then hit it down the exhaust with club hammer and used large mole grips to twist it round as I pulled it out  Newbie c800 Boss 184121345

Hey mr Johnboss..... what do you mean “the engineering skills of a two year old”.....

I wish I’d known that before I let you butcher my m800!
