Default How do I make my exhaust sound louder??

I bought a 2006 CBR600RR with a Yoshimura exhaust. I don't really know much about the exhaust (slip on or full exhauast). I would like to know if there is any way to make it louder? I ride with some guys that have GSXR600's with two brothers exhaust and they are considerably louder. Obviously I dont want it to sound raggidy but is there anyway to get some more umph out of it??

you could always open em up and take out the baffle stuff and make it pretty much just a resonating pipe..

A full system will definitely be louder! 2 brothers no doubt have a thick humming loud! V & H is a higher pitch Rung Rung loud...

Though loud pipes save lives...can be argue...I really don't see a good really to go all out.....cutting it shorty will scream...

Focus of performance,'handling, suspension, & safety is rather more common sense.

You can drill the rivets on the end and remove some of the baffles and/or
cut it down and then re-install the cap.

That said...the Yoshi, combined with proper mapping, will give you an actual
performance gain beyond just being less weight. Why mess with HP vs "sounds meaner"?

If you want to wow your buddies, spend the time/money upgrading your
suspension, brakes or throw a little bling into some under-carrage LEDs.
Some SS braided lines, rim-tape, Renthal or Driven grips. The kind of
upgrades that improve the mechanics/ergonomics/safety of your ride.

And, it will have the added benefit of not annoying everyone, including other bikers.
We all suffer from the bad PR broadcast by the bone-heads running loud.

I understand a good growl, but it should be under not over-stated. imo

This can be a pretty volitale subject. I hope you consider my comments and aren't insulted by them.

+1 Ern...why is it that you always put it better in words than me? I've mean to say the same but my vocabulary does not write so well...LOL...

Now about the sound, I personally like the Vance & Hines sound better than the Yoshimura(IMO)...it's a bit louder with a Rung...2 brother no doubt have the strongest Hummm... But cost the most $$$$ on your wallet.

I would swap, rather than modified the integrity of the pipe which don't sacrifice performance.

Cool, I appreciate the comments and offense taken at all. Im not unhappy with the Yoshimura by any means. Just wanted to see if there was any way to tweek some more sound out of it. As far as other upgrades I'd like to do those also. Just can't break the bank at this point. Trying to take it slow with the upgrades if you know what I mean. Thanks for the pointers!

+1 on taking it slow...don't hurt the wallet with luxury upgrades...take it slow and when the right opportunity comes...then do it. How about gears? I believe the money spent in gears for your body is just as good.

In addition: can I get your vote? Lol...& tks Ern for the vote...

I have 2bros and love it. Modifying your yoshi is free if you do it yourself.. Just depends on what you want. I won't talk about bling or LEDs since this is an exhaust thread but.. Those are def great safety!

If people can hear you coming, they'll look twice before changing lanes or pulling out. I have a Jardine with Race Baffle in mine, and with my gearing setup it's crazy loud on the highway, but I love it otherwise.
