New bike sneeking around

1563 7
My wife has her new Vegas in the perl white and its sharp.
The problem is its sounds like A marshmellow! She is dangerous sneeking about nobody can hear her and the white color is not the one that stands out and say look at me!
I want to put just a couple 1/4 inch holes in the back plates of the pipes hopefully this will at least help me hear her coming up behind me .
Will this make it nessisary to remap or does it change the warranty or will it make it run like ****.HELP please

I drilled 8 - 1/4" holes in each cap. This is considered bad for your warranty, but I really don't think it's gonna hurt it. Wife is pretty easy on her bike.

No map change, but I did have to adjust the idle.

I wanted to add stage 1. She said no. So, I drilled them. It's not much louder unless you really hit the throttle. Sound difference is notable though.

Perhaps someone here can provide more info.

Does your wife want it loud or you? Did you ask her? The loud sound will be behind the bike. When a bike is coming at you how much of any color do you see? You will see the headlight long before you see the color or hear the pipes.
Sure open pipes are loud enough for others to hear but that's not what you are going after.
Since all you are after is a "little" more sound just buy her Stage 1.

Do NOT completely remove the baffles. Someone here can give more detail as to why, but I've heard that the engine relies on some back pressure from the baffles.

No baffles = potential engine damage

I like the stage 1 drag exhaust the best. I used those in an 07KP.

What year bikes are talking about here? Big difference in suggestions with the 08 and up models.
