Stinky exhaust (modification?)

The sound from my exhaust stinks, but I like the way they look, and don't want to spend $800 for 5 extra horsepower.

I know that on some bikes the exhaust can be drilled or the baffles reduced etc..

Are there any modifications I can make to the oem exhaust to give them a little extra growl, don't need loud, just a little growl.

Oh, by the way, they smell ok, much better than the diesels I occasionally get stuck behind.

De-baffle is the way to go. Cheap mod and I love the way mine sounds.

I debaffled mine, but they sounded like I had just replaced my mufflers with empty coffee cans. Some people love the sound and others...not so much.

Question: Do you know the difference between British toilet paper and sandpaper?

Answer: Sandpaper is only rough on one side!

That would make sense, as a higher octane fuel burned in an engine that doesn't have high enough compression to take advantage of it will not burn as throroughly as a lower octane fuel. Since one of the design elements of the 919 is lower compression, it is designed to run on regular fuel. I have always from new burned 87 octane (US measure) in my '07 and have never noticed a "stink" problem, and have asked my friends and wife about it and neither have they.

I made these up several years ago. Extentions on baffelectomized stock cans. No stink. They look better in person than in pics.

Hey Sniper, great idea and looks alright too!
My wife hates the smell and I am disappointed
that she is reluctant to pillion.
Lol she actually suggested toilet rolls on the
baffles; she wasn't far off the mark though.
I just laughed and said it would be spectacular
once they caught fire.
So, no smell....problem solved. If so I'm in.
Cheers
