Removing the exhaust baffle
« on: September 13, 2019, 08:14:55 AM »
Morning All!

I am trying to remove the small weld that holds the screw for the baffle on a US spec Arrows for my 765.

I've had a go with a Dremmel, but I can't get the right angle to remove the weld without destroying the screw head. Given that I'd like to put the baffles in sometimes, I'd rather preserve the darn thing.

Anyone come up with an alternative plan for this? I've only a limited set of tools...

I used a small triangular file. Then sprayed in some penetrating fluid Duck Oil/WD40 or simular left it overnight and then hooked it out.

Thanks, Scrubber! I think I was fixated on power tools too much to think of that

I shall rifle the toolbox and see if I have something...

Curious,  I've never heard of that stuff on this side of the pond.

Yet, it doesn't seem to be made from Ducks.  Nor does one seem to use it for oiling Ducks. .   . :027:

Duck Oil is great, it is much better than WD40. Less aggressive but still does the same job.

I used a small very sharp chisel it only took a few mins and a small round file to smarten it up,it sounds well now but not too loud.

Thanks, all. In the end, a triangular file and some penetrating oil did the trick.

Lets see if its too load for the commute!

Eek! No, sorry - would you like me to do a reconstruction?

On the subject of sound, I haven't really noticed that much difference when riding with/without baffle, perhaps a slightly deeper note...
