If you mean the cone that is part of the end of the midpipe that goes into the muffler many people simply cut it off with a hacksaw.
I have no idea if it actually makes any difference though as I have two OEM systems and both were already cut off before I got them.
I prefer quiet mufflers myself.

Yes that is the cone I am refering to. just wondering if it will make the bike a bit louder if i cut it off? I would like the bike a bit louder but not crazy just a bit louder as to let people driving in cars and truck that there is a bike around I think it helps to alert people.

It doesn't, at least not if you're thinking people will hear you in time to prevent them from killing you.

Nobody ahead of you can hear you until you're too close for it to save your life. Possibly if you mounted your muffler facing forward it might make a difference but even then I doubt it. On the race track I can just barely hear even big twins on full noise just a few meters behind me.

Again talking street in a big city with big building sound bounces all over not talking raceing, get off the track and in to the city. if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around dose it still make a sound.yes it dose but no one is around to hear it. but if you were there camping and a tree starts to fall you hear it braking your going to be looking for what tree is falling and get the h#*l out of the way. well if your smart you will.

loud pipes do not fight it either. The sound is behind you while riding. The sound you claim is bouncing off of buildings is non directional so it offers nothing expect sound pollution

I merely mentioned the track because you don't often get to hear things like SP2's, 1098's and 996's on full noise elsewhere :-)
And if I can't hear one of those just a few meters away there is no way any car driver is going to hear a road bike muffler behind them.

Nobody is denying it can be heard, just that it can't be heard ahead of you.
If you do a lot of riding in reverse it might help though ;-)

As I mentioned earlier, I still don't think you'd be heard even with the muffler pointing forwards. You are moving forward and your exhaust gas and sound is moving backwards away from you. People _ahead_ of you are not going to hear anything early enough to make any difference to you.
It's not that complicated really.
