Can U modify Stock 954 exhaust can for better sound?

I have an '03 954 and just want better sound. Power is enough, as-is. Has anyone tried modifying the stock exhaust can and received acceptable results?

Listen to the nupe. You'll wind up making your bike sound like sh*t.

It's a matter of opinion,I removed the main baffle plate,and I think it sounds much better than stock.I do plan to get a full system and pc3 one day.If you have a 49 state,you should cut the cone too.

You can take the can off and saw the cone off. Then drill a few more holes in the front of the can (through the hole).
A friend of mine has done this and it sounds cool!

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

I feel inducted in to the group, LOL. Absolutely agree that the best thing would be to get an aftermarket can, but need the cash for tires right now. Sounds like the cone removal and holes in the first baffle might do the trick. Do you have to cut off the cone for aftermarket cans anyway?
