I wonder how much more it would really cost.
Thats some great info...thanks.....RRpilot said:Dont do it. You would be very disappointed in the long run. I was involved in developing the RS-5 as much as my bike was the test bike for the production versions of slip-on and full system. Here is one of the major problems with carbon and why the really decided to not make one. Look at the shape of the RS-5 can and you will see that it has a complex shape, 4 sides in a trapizodial shape, with rounded corners. To make carbon fiber meet these complex sides and shape it would be thicker and more expensive to make. Long term longevity is a big concern as the shape makes it more suseptible to cracking. Also the internal baffle packing must be replaced so often, that taking the can apart would more than likely cause damage and breakage, which then Yosh would maybe have to deal with. In then end Yosh would not be able to make a quality product that would last and satisfy it customers.
Yea, the yosh is huge...and not round like most of the exhaust.T-Rock said:So is it like this with any other carbon fiber exhaust? If so, I might just stick with titanium or SS then.
No prob, Nice having insider info,plus I'm just here to add my 1&0's to the hyperhiway.RRpilot , Sweet info. I wondered why they werent offering a CF. Thanks for sharing.
Hey Champ,1 2 NV said:Does antone have a sound clip of the slip on? I think I came across one but it was in a garage, the door was open but I still think it effected the sound.
My f3 came with a two bros carbon fiber slip on. while i absolutely LOVE that exhaust, i know i dont like the two bros for the RR i am eventually getting. I want a Yoshimura, titanium... Full system or not is the question.T-Rock said:So is it like this with any other carbon fiber exhaust? If so, I might just stick with titanium or SS then.
