I was trying to find out the same thing for an 06'. I'd like to keep the stock look- but open up the exhaust. I'm suprised no-one has developed a sleeve insert to replace the baffle for the stock pipes.

Drilling holes through the baffle was done on bikes in the 70's and 80's. I helped do a neighbor's BMW R90 in the early 80's. But the baffle was way deep in the pipe. I haven't heard about doing this in several decades.

I'm sure that some machine-shop maven has figured out a way to slice open the undertail pipes, remove the baffles and put 'em back together; but, you will need the bike re-mapped....you will change the flow and harmonics of the whole exhaust system, and the bike should be dynoed and remapped, to eliminate new lean areas that will crop up due to the lack of restriction.

Or, you can take your chances, and hopefully not hole a piston or burn exhaust valves................

Doing it right the first time can save you a long walk home.........

This is why I'm still sportin' the stock pipes. I was hoping to find a company that has done all the testing/re-mapping that would know the facts of modding the stock pipes. I'll probably end up going w/ an aftermarket set-up.

but it gets the same job done and cheaper. The aftermarket pips are tested and tuned to be right tho.
