They arent weak bikes. Not at all. Unleashed they are almost monsters.You do not need a head pipe for that thing to rip
Take any insert out of the pipe .
Something is wrong
Opening up the airbox cant hurt unless you are riding in the water

I haven't done any of the mods yet. That AIS removal kit is in the mail now. As of right now all that i have done is put the pipe on it. I think it sounds good, but when my buddy rides with me, his sounds badass compared to mine.
It sounds to me like you are being the responsible rider by optimizing the performance of your machine while not being obnoxiously loud.
If you want to blow your buddy out of the water with noise, then take off the silencer and just run the header. May run like crap, but it will be "badass".

most likely it's a fmf speed titanium Like the one on my 07. Fmf made them for Parts Unlimited that was the only place you could get it .

The reason I say that is because I was watching the step up competition on ESPN 2 today and Brian Deegan's CRF 450R was the quietest bike of the bunch. That was the only bike in the field that you could hear the intake noise over the exhaust note for about the first 1/2 of throttle travel. By comparison all the other 4 strokes (including RC's thundering factory Suzuki) were much louder.
