Just change the muffler bearings from steel to ceramic. The will normally do the trick. There is also a sound card in your ECU. You can just purchase a new one from Morotrcycles Unlimited (ask for Brandon) to adjust the volume as well.

Although changing the bearings is a bit more work, it is a much cheaper fix.

you can do it pretty easily. Just remove your lowers and pull off the mid pipe, remove the old bearings, and drop in the new ones.

Give Brandon a call, and tell him Tim sent you

you did the right thing. Don't let that ding-dong get to you.

Seriously, call Brandon at Motorcycles Unlimited, tell him Tim sent you. They usually carry the ceramic bearings and sound cards in stock.

Tim, remind me to never let you work on any of my bikes.

to the OP: We did it to the exaust on my R1, it was already scratched so didn't care if it turned out sounding aweful. Luckily it turned out sounding good. Just drilled out the rivits, remove some or all of the packing, and rivit it back together. However, removing the packing decreases the back pressure on the engine. I did notice some loss of torque.

disclaimer: by "we", I mean Scott did the work and I supervised.

It is only about a 10 minute job to change the exhaust bearings, you will see an incrediable difference in your emotional state also, it also helps with deminitia!
