Louder mufflers? Bigger speakers? Lack of lubrication?
What kind of sound are we talking about?

Release the mute button on the left handlebar!! As above, what sound are you trying to increase? :D

When I installed a set of turn down exhaust, it had more of a rumble. If that's not enough, you could drill into the first baffle.

If you're looking for sound, you could drill out a baffle as others have mentioned....also could look at aftermarket pipes----Torqmaster, Cobra, and AlleyKats make pipes for the gl1800....I have the torqmaster pipes and the torqloops, and have nothing bad to say about them.

Yes, as above, I have heard that the torqueloops increase and personify the sound.
