    Leave it on there.

    A proper race can without any kind of baffle ain't fooling any traffic cop worth the name and removing it will get you fined with "peverting " " " etc as well as having a noisy can.

    if you have removable baffles maybe, if not leave it alone imo.
    Were i to do it i would remove the strap and turn it around so the writing is on the inside.
    Half a dozen blind rivets and bobs ya uncle
