No, the baffles are further into the pipe, almost next to the bend coming out of the engine. What you are cutting out is the resonators. The baffles get the emissions and sound level down under EPA standards. The resonators just make the exhaust even more quiet.
I talked to my local dealer about this and he told me that 1) It will void your warranty, so don't do until your warranty expires AND 2) Your bike will still pass inspection since the baffles are still in. (This is for TX, so I'm not sure about your state.)
