One way you'd get more is by installing a more restrictive flowing exhaust canister, like the stock unit.

but I'm more interested in WHY you think you need more back pressure?

You were told WRONG.

Arbitrarily increasing the exhaust back pressure will burn the valves...among other nasty things.

Try repacking the can.

Either they meant that you don't have enough baffling because they don't appreciate a nice, loud pipe, or they did mean backpressure because they rode your bike and thought it didn't have enough low end grunt. I need to know more about the situation (who told you and why) before I make any further assumptions.

A nice big 'tater will increase backpressure significantly, just for the record.
