Can't help you but I was thinking of doing the same. Let me know how loud they are afterwards. I'm kinda hoping to achieve a little more of a throaty grumble. Not too loud.

Just wondering, how did you get them loose but not release? Did you cut the cone off the rear of your stock pipes? On an 06,( I assume would be the same) there is a lot of hardware in there it seems. Just as a note, if you gut your stock pipes, be sure to re-jet or you will run super hot, as I understand it. Ride safe.

On my 650 baffle gut I used a long flat blade screw driver and went around the pipe edge on the inside plate. The pipe is a wider diameter and the hole in the plate needs to be made bigger. Then I had to twist and rock to get it to come loose. Once you get an edge out it should just slide out, mine did.
