Removing the dB killer / baffle on a Diablo exhaust
Part of our Fuel Friday series, this video demonstrates how to remove and replace the baffle in a Diablo exhaust. It is a similar procedure for our other exhaust ranges too - Slash, Classic and F1R Road and Race and this is referenced further in the video.
We are regularly asked the best way to remove the baffle / dB killer from our Diablo exhausts. Many customers contact us to say they have dropped the bolt when trying to remove the baffle and wonder how to get it out. Don't worry! The bolt cannot get inside the exhaust, it has simply dropped inside the carbon tip / end cap and will just sit there. The easiest way to remove the bolt is by using a magnet to trace it out of the access hole. This is demonstrated in our video.
Our other exhaust ranges (Slash, Classic and F1R) also have removable baffles but it is much more obvious on how to remove it. The bolt is secured at the bottom of the outlet on these ranges and is simply removed using a 5mm allen key and a pair of pliers. Replacing it is just as easy.
