My bike is too quiet

Hi, new here and new to cruisers. I like the bike but it's so quiet! Is their any way to remove the catalyst (if their is one) or modify the exhaust? I tried searching but no luck. Tia

Yeah, stock pipes. Have been searching and it seems that's modified stock pipes are still not very loud? Still can't find a "how to" but if it doesn't make much difference I'll just wait and get some new pipes. Which are the best ones for that offensively loud roar?

I have V&H Powershots, and I find them to be a little...polite for my tastes. My previous V2K had Hard Krome straights and they were a bit more brash, but not what I would call "thunderous". So, for offensively loud roar, I would look elsewhere.

smedlin seems to like his loud ass pipes. Maybe he'll chime back in.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.

I have seen some called Samson street sweepers, look ok. I'm going to call the shop and ask "are they going to offend my neighbors?" If the answer is yes, I'll probably get them?
