Drilling baffles

Just joined today and own a 2008 Goldwing. I'm comming from 10 years of riding a Valkyrie and am looking forward to my years ahead on the Wing. I do, however, want to get a little exhaust modification goin on. Has anyone in the group drilled the baffles on a newer model Wing? If so did you have to have after market tips? I did that on the Valk and loved the deeper tone. Thanks in advance.

Ron- What year is your Wing with the drilled baffels and did you have to replace the stock tips?

Has anyone drilled a 2018 Tour exhaust out? Looking for procedure and is it worth doing.
I have drilled my previous 2012 and had good sound.

It reall shouldn't affect teh bike any more than your previous model. Nice thing is, you can always plug the drilled hole(s) if you don't like it.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
