Making stock exhaust louder

Hey guys, new to the forums, I got a 06 vulcan 750 that I bought about 3-4 months ago. I was just wondering if there is any way to make the stock exhaust any louder by maybe removing baffle's, packing, etc. or do I have to just get new exhausts. Thanks alot guys.

I've heard of other people removing the baffles. If you got the money, try doing that first. That should make it LOTS louder. If it doesn't work, then you can go aftermarket. While you got the baffles out, drive over to the bad part of town, get the rpm's up, then decelerate quickly, and watch the innocent bystanders duck and cover!

Do a search on here for "Degoating" that will get you started. I myself went with aftermarket pipes on my 06. The pipes are from Vance and Hines "Cruzers" I got them for 310.00. They fit perfect but there is another step to perform when altering your exhaust, do another search for "Coastering" That will explain alot.

The downside to degoating is that you lose some power/torque. The same goes for sticking holes in the pipes. I don't know if the aftermarket pipes allow the same amount of torque, or if you lose some. There is a manufacturer that makes just baffles for the correct amount of back pressure that our engines need. These are baffles for aftermarket pipes.

I used the Scootworks kit, didn't notice any loss of power. Sound is Great and cost about $60 to do.

I love the disclaimer....

How loud does it get? and does anyone know the law for PA? or should I not even worry about it

Here's a guy from the yahoo site that shows a mod that improves tone. It's about halfway down the page.

It is not ear blowing loud but a good tone. I added a little to mine by removing the screen in the mufler and drilling out the end with 3, 3/8ths holes.
If you remove the mufler and look in from the motor side you will see a large hole screen, kinda thick. I drilled the holes larger until they connected and the piece falls out. Gives a straight through flow. Just a reminder this is not reversable! Do this on your own, I am a Mechanic and do alot of fabricating for a living. It did open up the sound and I am glad I did it but if you are not sure, don't do it and break anything and blame me. I am just telling you what I did.
