Graves is made specifically for Yamaha. You couldn't do much better for the price.

Termis are supposed to be bad . The gains in hp are about the same/ wouldn't be able to tell the diff. Get the ones that look and sound the best to YOU.
Good luck mang, good choice in bike

that's the only thing I think the graves will perform better with the matching y pipe.. while the termi will look better in carbon fiber.. I have heard sound clips they are both deep.. so im kind of on the ropes..

The termi's look sexay, and you can't beat Itialian quality. If you think they are worth 150 more go with them. I like the look better of the Termi's, but Graves is specific for the R1. You can't go wrong with either.

Exactly. But if the Termi's don't come with the gutted Y pipe then I say go with the Graves.
Considering the price of the slip ons for the 09's, the $500 tag doesn't sound bad at all

I'd go with the Graves.
The couple of Termi systems I've installed on the R1's fit poorly.
