Hi Lcyr. 
Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get.  What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
 Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little.  I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :)  Cheers
regards robotek

2000 Suzuki Intruder VS800, I noticed while idleing there is a poddle of what appears to be gas and oil from the joint @ tail pipe. What is wrong?

Most likely, this is just water. Especially true if this happens only when the engine and exhaust are cold. Try tightening the clamp more securily at the joint - there are drain holes in the bottom of the exhaust pipes designed to allow this (normal) condensation to drain from the system.

Aftermarket pipes bored out, bike hesitates on take off?

Its a matter of preference. You could put the stock pipes back on and have the bike work as it was designed to work.
If you leave the free flowing pipes on, then to complete the package you need to give more air/fuel and step up the timing curve.First it needs to take in more fuel to allow for the better respiration. Second you need to let the ignition take advantage of the new found fueling. If you set up the motor correctly with a better breathing intake and exhaust and utilize the ignition to take advantage of it then your motor will give you better response, more power and more efficiency ( better mileage/ MPG). In short it is one of the cheapest and most dependable performance upgrades ( best bang for the buck) you can make... if done correctly.

Any suggestions on a quieter exhaust system?

install a smaller motor
the reason it is so loud is that the motor is tuned to a certin back presure so exhause provides this
ask the dealer if they have a quieter exhaust designed for the bike they might and at least you sill get a solid answer

Remove baffles from mufflers on a 1998 Suzuki VS 800 Intruder

there will probably be a couple or rivets close to the end of the muffler. drill out or chop off with a chisel. pull out baffles. but beware it will be loud. i did this to my dragstar/v star and ended up putting them back. you could just remove some of the fiberglass packing from the baffles, the cops will give you sh*t if you run straight thru. aftermarket pipes would be the real way to go, you may need to re-jet the carbs though. my bike also lost power with no baffles as engines need back pressure and all pipes are designed to give this.
hope this helps
