If you guys just want a slip on, look at the Taylor Made half system. It looks sick on the 1000s and comes with a fairing piece to help enclose it under the bike....

As for full systems, Akro, Arata, Ti Force, Leo Vince, Tsukigi, Brock-Hindle. M4 is decent also. Yosh always make for power on production bikes.... I would run a Muzzy before a yosh. Their quality and sound is good, just the header/collector designs are dated and don't gain as much as other systems.

Pretty much anything other then what I listed is all hype.(junk)

Personally I wouldn't spend $500 on a slip on and virtually gain no power.....I know not everyone wants to fool with tuning, power commanders or even wants more power but.... You are just paying for sound and poser points with a slip on.

Patrick , look at the quality of the Yosh. They are not as good as M4.
I've been putting on almost solely Yosh since the mid 80's. I've seen the difference between then and now. BTW, I'm mean full systems here, I rarely install slip-ons. The last one I did (a few days ago) I had to machine down the spigots to get the header to fit. They are nowhere near as good as they were and even cost more than ever. Thats why I don't recommend them anymore. M4 FTW!!!

This was in the "Performance" section. So as far as Perf.& Price.

M4, In My Humble Opinion. And, no I have nothing to do w/ M4.

Turns out, the guy was running a slip-on Arrow, and it sounds AWESOME. Slow speed it sounds very civil...

Maybe right, but...

I lost 9.2lbs of exhaust weight just by going to a slip-on (felt like even more since the factory cans were mounted up high). And I've still got the factory cat...

Some slip-ons eliminate the cat, too; you can loose some serious weight for just a couple hundred bucks.

A full system fully DYNO tuned will run you around $2,000 (which I would do, if I could afford it)!

Yeah definetly on some bikes for some people, slip ons are a good way to go. About 75% of sport bikers just want the sound and look of aftermarket pipes, that is a good way to go so there is no power commanders to buy and tuning to pay for....in reality, the gains for a full system though significant, by far do not offset what they cost. You gain good power but you DEFINETLY pay for it. Most people will not notice 6-8hp gain anyway..... on my 1000 after a full akro, PCIII and custom map, I gained 12hp and honestly, I could barely tell a difference by seat of the pants, I only noticed it revved a little quicker up top and held on longer.....BUT when I got beside someone I raced before and raced again, I had about 3-4 bike length gain on him this time, same race, same place....Was it worth the $1500 I spent.... NO.....but.. it sounds and looks good and thats what really counts on the street...I am all about poser points and image...

No. I have a Jardine on my CBR. It's okay, but the build quality is not that great. I have seen much better.
