Yep, he says right in there he wants to go to pods and take out the baffles. The pods aren't really much of a problem, you can easily tune around them, and an aftermarket exhaust (even with pods) the same, but pull the baffles even if you leave the stock airbox in place, let alone with pods, and the bike becomes almost impossible to get tuned for even performance.
