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

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

the stalling is due to the rectifier (its a box under the plastics on the bike and has fins on it) if not this then possibly an air/fuel mixture problem but as with my old vl it was the rectifier
