Default drilling holes in stock mufflers

I didn't get any response on de-baffling, but can anyone tell me about drilling holes in my stock mufflers. I read on here that some of you have done this. How many holes do i need in each pipe to get a deep throaty sound, but not as loud as aftermarket exhaust. Or is there any slip on mufflers available that will get me about halfway between stock and cobra drag pipes? This is all for the Suzuki C50T - 2006. Thanks for any insight you can give me.
Also, after drilling, how prone to rusting are the pipes?

I heard that if you drill the holes it changes the back pressure and you have tothe engine retuned. How does yours run with the 8 holes, and did you do anything else as far as tuning?
I appreciate the response. I have been kicking the idea around about new pipes for about 6 months. THen i ran across this forum and now i don't know what to do. I have a metal piston in my left ear and i can't have a loud bike like with Cobra drag pipes or something like that. So drilling holes might be good for me. It might give me the in between sound i am looking for.
Thanks again.

I havent done a thing
the bikes sniffer on the pipes altered its self

these bikes are pretty well self sufficient
to a point they adjust settings all the time without us even knowing

i must say i Do enjoy the deep Burble sound very soothing to the ear NOT overly loud
hard to describe but it sure sounds nice

My Husband just said that what we have done to my bike
would be what you are trying to achieve without Loudness But a sweetDeep Rumbling sound


IF the pipes are De Baffled then you have to get the ECU Re Mapped

i debaffled mine and did not have to "re tune" as you said the bike take care of itself in that sense. If you debaffle, the pipes are not true straight thru pipes anyway. theres a plate in the pipes waaay up the pipe that you cant get to anyways.

Before i done anything to my bike
i have even considered painting it ( i like pearl white )

i asked my dealer where i boughtthe bike from about the warranty
and they said there was No problem
BUT
ask Your dealer ? where ever you bought the bike from ?

Don't Ever go by what any one else says

Yes i am a Ulysses Member
why do you ask ?

I recently joined the Yarra Ranges club, and vaguely recalled seeing a reference to your user name, I think!
