I have a 2009 gl1800 comfort navi pac.I'm wondering is there more power to be had besides exhaust?Also how much power can I find,without breaking my meager bank account,and am interested to find this power w/o sacrificing the great mpg or at the expense of my warranty or longevity!Any help here is greatly appreciated!

What exactly are you looking for? Stump pulling power? 0-100 in 3 seconds?

Try torque loopz to replace the catalytic convertors and torque master slip on mufflers.
Not costly and the manufacturer claims it gives more power to your Wing.

The stock wing has more power than you need, even lugging it the bike will respond fairly quickly. I put on torque loopz for the sound and it did increase the power some what. I notice it more in the mountains, quicker response and passing power with out down shifting. When I'm in the power band, about 3500 RPM the bike just wants to go faster quicker. I adjusted all the play OUT of my throttle also. Just makes for quicker response which gives the illusion of more power.

one at a time...

The exhaust mods (g'bye cats) don't affect the warranty, but they do affect emissions, esp in California. he only throttle by wire bike Honda makes is the new VFR, Wings have cables (and they do break according to posts in WingWorld). There are Power Commanders out there for GL1800's that I'm more than a tad curious about, just not ready to make the leap yet. That's about all the coin I'd dump on a performance upgrade for the Loopz and a PC...under $1000 easy. 1800police is more up on the PC than me.

do these mods affect my warranty?Are they easy enough to do myself(I'm handy with o wrench)?Where do I get parts?How much will I gain?Will I lose mpg?Are these mods louder?How much louder?
I would say no on the mods affecting the warranty, as some people swap the oem mufflers for something else. Swapping out the exhaust is easy, as you're removing the catalytic converters and putting the loopz in their place and adding the mufflers and the company does have baffles for them so you can tone it down. I am not sure about the loss of mpgs, but the manufacturer does say you will get significant power gain.
