If louder is the goal get true dual head pipes and a good set of slipons, put a S/E stage 1 air intake on it, and buy the S/E tuner for the bike.
These aren't Hondas that you just slap baffles in and out of to make them loud when you want. You pull the baffles then you need to adjust the A/F mix and add some restriction to the pipes ie torque cones and oversized baffles. When you put them back in you need to adjust again.
At the end of the day a set of pipes matched to the bike either has the sound or it doesn't. Pulling baffles for the most part is loud and sounds like shit, especially on a bagger. Bagger slip ons are generally in the 3 to 4 in inch diameter. When you pull the baffles they tend to have a loud metal tin can ringy sound.
The other thing to take into consideration is the cat. If you are running the stock head pipes they have a cat in them that is already choking the crap put of the bike and causing the bike to run leaner and hotter than it needs to. Pulling the baffles on a bike still running the cat isn't going to help much. The cat by itself is killing the sound.
