Question From Quiet to Loud

I just purchased a 2008 Honda Spirit 750. Does anyone know how to make the stock pipes louder without having to buy new pipes/ slip-ons

No baffles no power.

Hacksaw. Cut the pipes off about 4 inches from the exhaust port, for that "Pratt & Whitney" effect. Also looks neat at night when flames are shooting out of the pipes. Don't forget to stock up on exhaust valves...you can get a platic bag full of 'em at Harbor Freight.

You Betcha! Here's the deal: get on over to Home Despot and buy:

A hole saw kit. They have 3-5 sizes in the kit, look for one that has saws about the size of the inside diameter of your bike's mufflers.

A length of 1/2" or 3/4" all-thread, depending on the size of the hole saws you get. It'll need to be 36-48" long.

Nuts and washers to mount the hole saw on the all-thread.

By now you've probably figured it out: pull the mufflers off and get your assistant to hold them for you. Mount up the hole saw that fits inside the muffler on the all thread and drill out the inside. Be sure to go in the front and the back, just like you'd do at home.

Mount the mufflers back up, get a buzz on, BE LOUD, BE PROUD MUTHAFU<KER!!!

Back in the day with Triumph's & Sportsters we used to just take the silencers off and call them TT pipes or Drag pipes didn't improve the power any but it was loud as hell. Plus back then changing exhaust valves was a three or four hour job, might be a little more nowadays.
