If you want a throaty pipe go for a Yoshi. I am still on stock but if I change the pipe it will be Yoshi.

FMF's full titanium Powercore GP slip-on sure is nice. Here's how it sounds on Ninja 650R, which has basically the same engine:

Available for $399 or best offer, plus $15 shipping in USA: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FMF-T...Q5fAccessories

FMF is good but Yoshimura is even better. They have the best fit and finish out there. I went with the Yoshi and never looked back. Get the best and be done with it.

I like my Yoshi pipe and they are over 100$ cheaper than the FMF at Indysuperbikes.

Japan made Yoshimura slip-on with pre-muffler resonator is longer and sits beside the swingarm instead of in front of it. Made of polished stainless steel tubing, it's available with either a stainless/stainless, stainless/carbon, or stainless/titanium silencer, with TRC single or TRC-D dual outlet, or with the TRS stainless/stainless silencer.

I have a Two Brothers Stainless. Has a real nice growl...not as good as a set of Sampson Ripsaws but pretty dang nice.

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

My solid welded custom Magnaflow silencer (2-1/2" ID core) with Yoshimura TEC-SD2 insert on Muzzy header has the deepest sound of all.

My header is an Arrow. Don't really care for the way the Arrow Muffler looks around the outlet.

Here's a better look.

I like my arrow, price is less than some of the other choices as well. In the video that guy has the silencer removed.


Those who say money can't buy happines haven't bought A VERSYS.
