If you're looking for just a tiny bit, Harley slip on mufflers should fit the bill, and you can get like new take offs for $50 or less. Not much noise, just a little throatier. No need to rejet. Seems sort of sacrilegious though, putting Harley parts onto a Goldwing ;)

Hey- you're not that far from me. Grab me a set of decent pipes and a pair of brackets, and I'll drive up there this week!
