First off, welcome to the forum from southwestern PA. And my first advice would be to stop using throttle while starting the bike. Might avoid having to replace starter clutch a second time. As for the sound of the exhaust changing, I can't see how one can effect the other unless you had the exhausts off, and did something wrong when putting them back on. Did you put new exhaust gaskets in? Leave a wrench in the pipe? Just kidding. Maybe someone else will chime in with a solution to your dilemma.
