Seriously, buy a hole saw slightly smaller than the exhaust outlet. The numbers are worn off mine but I think its 1 3/4". Drill thru the weld ring inside the outlet and pull the guts out.
My local HD shop did this for years for $20. You do need a good drill, preferable air-powered. The resulting sound is great. Not as loud as an aftermarket system, but throatier.

Use ear plugs on longer rides....

Ya that's a good answer... Spend another 15 to 30K on a bigger bike instead of just adding some new slip on's or pipes for a couple of hundred... I guess you missed the sticky post on the Sportster being a girls bike...

The cheap bastard in me loves that idea... going to go do it now.

After shooting shrapnel out the tail pipes, the bike sounds amazing. so easy to do and it was free.

If you do it, don't have anything behind your bike when you start it up.
