New Kwacker today.

Collected my new H2 today problem is the fitter didn't remove the baffle from the carbon fibre Akro and I don't know how to remove it any tips or ideas? rgds Stu.

Pop out the little black grommet and there should be a 4mm hex allen key locking the baffle in.

They can be a bit tight to remove the baffle sometimes.

Don’t think they spot weld them like on the later ZZR 1400 Ackros?!

Also remove the hideous reflectors from your front fender, that was my second job after junking the comedy silencer!

Hi, enjoy the bike. Just a general observation, this looks like a standard bike. In the past I believe the pin striped wheels were reserved for the h2r and the carbon versions.
Also, great choice in end can. Could you let me know how much difference it makes when you remove the dB killer(baffle). Get your dealer to order a couple of extra mud guard (fender) bolts to replace the reflector bolts that are b;ack, just finishes it off.

Nigel, I take out the baffle for our Straightliners top speed meetings and replace it again for road riding. With it out it usually measures around 98-100dB at 4,500 rpm (how they do our noise tests). Taking it out doesn't make a lot of difference to the volume but the tone is a little deeper. Looks cool too.

Congrats on the new bike Stuart.

If you have the correct paddock stand its hexagonal spindle fits through the wheel from the chain side. The wheel's hollow spindle is 12-sided (see image), you just need to rotate the paddock stand's spindle by hand to line them up. Unless something has changed for 2019?

The paddock stand from 15-18 won’t fit the 2019 bike because the axel is different. I had to get my stand machined to fit.
