Mivv X-Cone DB Removal

Just installed my mivv x-cones slip on exhaust on my 02 honda 919. I can't seem to find how to remove my baffles, can anyone help? It looks like there are rivets on it?

drill the rivet with the hand held drill, bit should be same diameter as the rivet, taking the db is always easier from the back side while the can is still off the bike. do that with a wooden stick and a rubber hammer.
at least thats how i do my cans...
cheers!

I'm with this, up until the point of the wooden stick. My dB killers basically fall out as the rivet is the only thing holding them in. I don't think Mivv considered a light press-fit and another method of attachment (rivet)

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

So I am only doing this to the one rivet on the part that is sticking out? Right? Not the 4 that are around the body of the can? In one picture I took a pic of the body rivets (two are shown in th picture) and the other two are a pic of the the inside and outside of the rivet on the part that is sticking out of the part of the can that I am referring to as the "body"

Yes, just the one rivet at the back of the can inside the lip. There might be a corresponding hole underneath the can (maybe a rubber plug covering it) that allows you to re-secure the baffle with a small bolt/nut.

Different bike but same concept:

I cut my baffles down to get a bit more growl.

So you put them back in after cutting them?

Yup, they are now removable by just taking out that small nut/bolt.

I take them out when I go to the track. Way too loud for the street, I make Harley riders pee their panties and women swoon from the sidewalks into traffic.

Not a safe situation.
