Since nobody else will do it:

If you get a louder exhaust, you're going to need to change the EFI. That's usually done via reprogramming or adding a device such as a Power Commander from DynoJet.

There's probably a dozen choices in aftermarket exhaust from Cobra, White Bros, Vance and Hines, and others. As suggested, you can drill or even bang the baffles out of your existing mufflers, but if I were you, I'd save the stock exhaust for when you sell the bike one day.

Plan on spending about $800 or more for the complete setup with EFI update and pipes.

Oh cripes another cryptothread resurrected.

The VTX is too mildly cammed for any mods to make much difference anyhow. Waste your money if you want. At least it keeps those exhaust system geniuses in greasy garages in Tarzana in the chips.

Ignore that Saruzawa behind the curtain, louder is faster, how can you go wrong? Take your tax refund and buy the loudest pipe you can find, that way you'll save the most lives.....

I would recommend a set of Cobra exhaust, they sound good. Here are a couple links for you to see what they look like. One for the exhaust system. The other for the FI controller since you will need to remap your fuel injection. Also you may want to consider a high performance air cleaner like a K&N
