Default Cut off my exhaust pipe?

So, I'm riding an 06 Kat 600 and my buddy from the bike shop is suggesting that I should just chop the exhaust pipe right behind the foot peg. I'm not sure I wanna lay out the cash for a nice aftermarket pipe, but I'm not a big fan of the long chrome pipe running all along the back right side of my bike.

My buddy says that if I chop off the pipe before the muffler, add a K&N filter, and rejet the carbs I'll get better performance and great sound.

Has anybody else ever tried this? What does it sound like? Is it a good idea?
