Akro muffler baffle removal

Guys, i have the older style Akro muffler for my bike and wanted to remove the baffle for closed course work. I took out the one little screw in the bottom and the baffle moves a bit then stops. I have grabbed it as gently as i can with pliers, but the sucker seems stuck. Is it a case of just yanking it out and stop being a wuss?

Col,

get a tent peg, or something similar, make the hooked over end small enough to fit in the baffle tube and hook over the end inside the baffle (you may punch through the spark arrestor mesh if it still has it - mine doesn't) then put the end in the vice or something and give it a few firm yanks, it may also help to work around the tube so you dont pull it out of line, and use some WD40 or similar to help it out.

Azza.
