Good choice, although there are others that work as well if not better for less money.
However, if you're looking for someting different than everyone else with good performance it's a good choice.

Not sure what your aplication is. But I run them on the RC. They make the most hp out of any other manf. on my ride. But your results may vary depending on the bike. Super light. I have the CF's. I just purchased a new sleeve kit today as a matter of fact. 125$ for the kit which includes sleeve,rivets, and badge. Support is 1st class if you get them from Dan. www.kyleusa.com They are in the process of moving this week on the west coast so shipping is going to be a couple days late. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

I have Satos on my RC and they sound great. They are kinda expensive, but the quality/fit/finish on them is great.

They are very nice sounding pipes. However, I am going to be forced to go with yoshi because of the price involved with sato's.

Yep, if you have dual exit exhaust, Sato can be pricey. My Ti Banzai for my RC was over $1100. However, if you have one can, then they aren't too bad. And also, w/ underseat, you have less risk of damage in an accident so the extra $$ for a premium exhaust is less risky IMO.

I actually sold my Sato exhaust on my RC and bought Leo Vince instead. I was looking for something w/ removable baffles and am very happy w/ the fit, finish, and value of the Leo Vince...

For the price, Yoshimura's are good slip-ons for the RC-51 and they sound good.
