Exhaust is too loud, can I make it quieter?

Post by English Bulldog » Fri Mar 09, 2012 11:54 am

Just bought a used 1996 Goldwing 1500 Aspencade. The end of the exhaust from the back is a square shape. I have been told it isn't a stock pipe, but I don't know for sure. It is empty for about eight inches in. Is there something missing? Can I add a baffle or fiberglass material to soften the pounding in my helmet as I ride at higher Rpm? Without my helmet, it doesn't sound bad and it is tolerable to ride. What are some of the aftermarket exhaust pipe names that I can check? Nothing written on the pipe telling me who made it.
