Open exhaust

Is there any issues running an open exhaust? No cat no pipes or baffles completely open. Is it hard on the engine?

Thanks for the tip...it's not any louder than any of the Harley's running around. Besides I live in such a rural area the only ones that would think I'm a jerk is the cows. I'm more interested in a performance gain on the top end. It tops out at 138 with full Termi exhaust. I ride with a fast group of Jap bikes & they pull away around 130. Just a bit more power would do. Any other ideas on how to squeeze more out of it? Gearing maybe?
