Yep back pressure like that will wipe out the power of these little engines, like curtisfox said a stainless steel or ever pure copper scrubbing pad like can be found at dollar stores and such is your best better as baffle material to quiet i5 down some, but just be aware that even a small amount of it in the pipe will cause you to loose some power since it restricts flow.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
