Default I want more power and louder pipes on 2006 8 Ball

Recently purchased stock 2006 8 Ball. It feels slow and is too quiet. I am sure there are 50 similar stories but don't see any.
What should I do because I know there is more to it than bolting on new pipes.

I am an old car guy, so I would appreciate any help with my new toy.

How big is your wallet? I'm not into high performance but there are some very good shops that are. Lloydz and The Vic Shop are two very good ones. You're closer to Lloydz.

You don't say how much you wish to put into the bike. A good starting point is to first make sure all is working well now. A good battery, check for any air leaks, especially the throttle body gooseneck which will begin cracking with age. If you just want a little more power an aftermarket exhaust and air system for more air. with those two changes you would most likely want to also install a fuel controller. I had those on my 92 ci and it ran plenty strong, and for the air system I just modified the stock air box and had a K&N filter. Lloydz makes a timing wheel which many praise but I am not sure if it is compatible with the 100 ci motor. If you start going more radical mods I'll let the others chime in. but you probably be looking at a more advanced fuel controller and a dyno tune also.
Let us know what you do.

Two simple questions...
1) How much power do you want?
2) How badly do you want it?

Exhaust, airbox, tuner = 95 HP-ish
Add cams to the above = 115 HP ish
Big bore added to that = 130+ HP
There are always turbochargers and superchargers...

How about something like this?

Thanks for the help. I had budgeted $1000 for upgrades. It seems like I can get pipes, intake and a fuel controller for about that.
I need louder than stock pipes, I can't hear my bike next to my buddies. I like the sound of the Bassani 2-1. Is this a good option? I don't want to annoy the neighbors too much.
Also, I am ignorant about fuel controllers, is the Wiseco the best option?

Default I want more power and louder pipes on 2006 8 Ball

I installed the Bassani 2into1 Road Rage system and found it too loud for my tastes. Twist the throttle and the system really roars. I tried to get some info from Bassani about a different baffle with no joy.

After some YouTubing I found a bit of a fix. I removed about 1/3 of the baffle material at the beginning of the Bassani baffle. I then fixed a metal baffle at the beginning of the baffle. The exhaust gases are forced into the Bassani baffle material as they cannot exit straight out. The noise level was noticeably reduced, but she still barks with a roll-on.

I have Dobeck controlers on my 04 v92tc and my 15 Gunner. Straight forward installation with no operation issues.
EFI - Electronic Fuel Injection Controllers - ATVs, UTVs, Motorcycles, Snowmobiles, Scooters, Sport Bikes, Watercraft

I used the recommended Dobeck settings on the v92tc, but had to go way rich with Gunner after adding a K&N air filter.

Enjoy your putt.

Thanks SportyDoug,
I appreciate the comments on the exhaust. I don't want to be too loud!
I post an update after my mods.
