My 2007 LT - it seems progressively louder week by week.
The "Loudness" seems to come from the front of the bike, not the pipe.
I checked the torque on the pipe assembly - all tight and did not see any trace of exhaust or soot in the area.
It feels like the "Air intake" noise, or as the air filter was removed or perforated.
Did not check this area yet.
Any suggestions before I start removing tupperware?

Thank you all,
BJ

I'd look for cracks in the header.

There is a "snorkle" on the right side just above the turn signal that may be missing as it is held on by friction and one bolt. It is louder with out this in place. Another is a buzz from where the upper faring meets the lower silver faring at the very front. Most add a small piece of foam here.
