Full system typically means the headers to the tip of the exhaust pipe.

That's what I figured, I saw the mention of headers in the full system ads but they didn't picture them. Just find it odd that none of the descriptions mention that an aftermarket cat is included

If it has the cat, I would think it is not a full system. Yoshi doesn't system would replace/eliminate the cat.

This is the picture hardracing.com uses under their description for the R-55 Full System:

Yoshimura Question

Looks exactly like mine, maybe the can I'm calling a cat isn't actually a cat? picture doesn't show any headers though

So if I were to order a Yoshimura Slip-On online it would come with muffler, pipe, and cat like my system?

I am telling you. If you have a FULL system it will bypass the cat. As in ELIMINATE it. There is NO point in having a full system (for racing esp.) and a CAT. The cat adds 10+lbs and restricts air. Thus counter productive for a full/racing system. The cat is there for DOT restrictions of air pollution and noise. Things that don't matter at the track.

I don't care what the Hardracing.com pic looks like. They were most likely lazy and didn't put a different picture in for the full system since the only thing noticeably different is the can.

07, i'll check out the thread when I get home. I undertand what you're saying about eliminating the cat Joe. I also stated I have stock headers. I just don't see anywhere listing that the slip-on comes with aftermarket pipe and yoshi cat yet that's what is on the bike

It doesn't. The slip on is just the pipe bub. It's seems like a lot of money for that one piece, but then again I am a cheap .

That's what I thought. Do they sell a kit that stops at the cat then? If so what the do they call it because I couldn't find it anywhre. I suppose I could always call the PO, but I'd rather just find the info online.

Wait WTF...I could be dead wrong. I saw a vid on youtube that showed the installation of the slip on and it was just the silencer (which we call the muffler) but that was on a K8.

However I looked at the installation instructions that show all the included parts that you pictured...

Weird...

Here is the install instructions:
http://www.yoshimura-rd.com/images/p...df/1104285.pdf
Seems like K7s come with everything and K8s come with just the silencer (aka the pics you have been seeing).

Here is a K7 and clearly you can see everything like in the above pic:

Starting in 08 the cat was welded, so aftermarket designs are a bit different.

on the k7's a slip-on will replace the cat (the cat is inside the monstrosity that is the muffler), which is why if you take it off it weighs like 25-30lbs.....the k8's cat is welded onto the midpipe so it just replaces the tip. but you can get around that because the k6/k7 header fits on the k8.
