Yosh trs baffle question

So since I got the bike the pipes have opened up a lot and gotten a decent amount louder. They came with the baffles removed, but they came along with it. I went to put them in today, and it seems pretty simple, but I got them in and they rattle horribly. Any ideas/suggestions/what I could be missing/doing wrong?

Yeah mine came with an extra washer about 1-2mm thick to go on the end before putting the cover back on to take up the slack or you could use something like steel wool for temporary

The baffles i put on my two brothers exhaust had o-rings to snug them down. You could just use silicone gasket eliminator if you have nothing specific for the Yoshi.

The pipes came with the bike and the baffles were already out and in a box.. I got every other fastener that came off the bike and he had every other stock piece that was changed or removed, so I find it hard to believe he left those out, and I don't see any wear marks/clean spots from any washer. Everything else is covered in carbon that wasn't touched by the cap and you can see where those line up. But it's super loose and rattles also, and I don't think I could mess up putting it in, so I'm at a loss... Anyone have a set of trs's that could pull them apart and check/take some pictures?

some baffles have a screw which hold them in place. If you don't see any provisions for one, I'd use high temp RTV and set the baffle on it, than some more RTV to set the cap.

There's three screws in the cap that clamp it down, and I don't see any other holes for a fastener... I guess I'll just do the rtv

also you try to use some gasket making material to snug it up a little. Cut it to donut shape and you are in business. You can also try cutting it to doughnut shape but it will be a little more involved. Glaze it with some RTV of your liking too

I've got the same setup and when I added the inserts they snugged up fine. I'd have to agree with the others about black RTV or something similar. Maybe something like this?-

Any chance you could give me a thickness/measurement on that? I could just make some at work.

Odd, mine didn't come with spacers and didn't rattle.

Probly all depends on where they weld the first one and final inspection might measure and throw them in

crap

so I ended up just using black RTV to hold them in... but now I decided it's much to quiet unless I was going on a very long trip, and I can't get the damn baffles back out... I tried heating them up with a heat gun as much as I felt comfortable, but I don't want to damage the pipes or the paint.... Any suggestions?

Maybe try putting some heat on it? A propane torch held a good distance back might do the trick.
