    yes you can drill through the back baffle in the pipe..check to see what size the area between the hole & the side wall of the pipe is on the rear of the pipe.. pick a drill that will put a hole about 1/2-3/4 of that distance.. then pick a spot & drill away.. the further you go in.. the more baffles you reduce.. & the louder it gets.. they say 3 holes so you can space them evenly around the baffle..

    & you shouldn't need to touch anything else.. like the carbie .. because it makes only a small difference in back pressure & volume..

    Loud doesnt make you faster,and loud pipes dont save lives. I have drag pipes on all my bikes simply because I like the noise.If its to loud then your to old. Yes you can drill out the baffles but it wont sound like a nice set of drag pipes. If your going to make a lot of noise at least do it right! If nobody makes drag pipes for that bike than a muffler shop can fabricate a set for you. Not sure about the optimum length and diameter for that motor but a good shop can figure it out and make something that actually works. I would also have an anti reversion cone installed as well to make sure the pipes actually flow.

    You can drill out your baffles, and you have to re-jet after changing your exhaust so I wouldn't think that you need to re-jet your carb if you only drill the exhaust.

    You could always buy a slip on exhaust to make your bike loud but I heard they are illegal depending where you are from and how loud they are. (Don't quote me on that though)

    You need to do a CLAYTON ROOT modification,

    so no engine or fuel mods required.

    If you don't even know your bikes specs you shouldnt be messing with any of it
