    Is that a slip-on or full exhaust? It looks pretty good, but too bad they couldn't bend the pipe to follow the angle of the tail a little better.

    Stock picture for reference?

    I'll probably just end up leaving it stock.

    Hard to tell exactly from that angle, but stock looks better :)

    You really cant go wrong with a Yosh product.

    I like the fact that the Yosh pipe addes a bit of extra length to the pipe with that little pig tail twist, becuase, conventional wisdom says that will net you a bit more torque.

    But, i do also agree that the angle of the pipe should ahve been coreccted a bit, to put it more in line with the sub frame. Maybe a linger tab on the hanger or somthing.

    Stock still looks preaty clean though. But the Yosh would probibly sound better, and get you some more performance with proper tuning.

    Tough call.

    The number one thing that pisses me off about aftermarket exhausts is when they don't follow the lines of the bike. How hard is it to measure the angle of the tail? :rant2:

    I'm sure Yosh has has their reasons for making it the way it is, but I don't like it.

    Leave it stock for now. There will be better ones for that bike.

    Also, have you checked into M4, Micron and Scorpion? I think they have pipes for it already too.










    Here's another Yosh

    An exhaust on a newer gsxr should be bought based on sound/looks.

    I've heard from many reliable sources that slip-ons/full exhausts barely produce any noticeable power on the new bikes, bc the exhausts are so well developed from the factory.

    I like that 2nd one a lot better. I am feeling the lower profile exhaust that comes stock, that one looks a lot like it. I don't think they are selling it yet though...as of about 3 days ago anyway, unless you know something I don't?

    I agree the other one looks like someone jacked a fart pipe off a Civic

    I'd go with the Yosh over Stock just for the sound alone

    Sorry I just think they ruined the Real import market. Then i see ricer crap (for squids) like neon kits being put on bikes. They are good cars my girl freind has one. But I liken all gay looking stuff to the slim shadys out there driving civics.

    Sorry it will never happen again.

    LOL, Late

    I'd go with the first yosh, second looks too much like the stock pipe IMO.

    Get the Yosh TRC, but go with the carbon/carbon version.
