I have a rs-5 on my 2005 and love it! It's not annoyingly loud, growls at lower rpms but screams when you get on it. My friends 09 has a rt-1 and it's pretty damn loud. Still has a good tone, but i'm glad i went with the yoshi.

someone in SD with an RT-1!? i must hear this before biting the bullet!

Personally i havent heard either....but if it were based on looks i like the RT-1, but the yosh look s a lot better now that they changed the end-cap.

they're both good pipes, but the one thing i don't really like about the RT-1 is the length of it. If i bought the rt-1 i would have definitely would have had to cut it. I also bought the rs-5 because it's like 100 bucks cheaper. lol

My friend has the RS5 on his CBR, I love it. Great sound and looks good. I hope to recieve mine today, been waiting a week now.

My personal choice was either the hex akra or the yoshi. But money wise I went for the Yoshi at under $400 brand new.

Search youtube, you will find a few on there...at least you will have an idea what it looks like and how it sounds.

Wow..good info in this thread. I am in the market for a Yoshi RS-5 too. Just a question to both 'Brian P' and 'ormrod'.

In BrianP's picture, the exhaust seems a little bit up and close to the tail. Does this make it harder to see the brake lights?

In ormrods video, the exhaust seems a little bit down. Is it because its a carbon as opposed to stainless steel or did you bend the piping a little bit so that the exhaust sits lower, making the brake lights more visible?

I wanted to go wth the stainless, but if the carbon enables more visibility for the tail light, I might spend an extra $100 and get it.

I think mine sits differently because I have an older bike than BrianP (2006 CBR600RR). The fitment on the newer ones looks a bit more tight to the tail light...

And it looks like we have the same model of pipe anywho (Yoshi RS5 Carbon)

In reply to Bond... it does sit close to the integrated tail but I just made a couple more changes to it (see other post) as far as visibility goes I just posted a video. Hope it helps, I might shorten it later down the road but if I do it will be to the pipe and not the canister.

I will also be adding my integrated taillight, when I put my pipe on. But I will be shortening the pipe. It will take around 15 min to do. 2cm will be more than enough. Just move the blocks on the downpipe that stops the can, that it.

Yosh or Jardine are awesome. I personally like the Jardine because of the Dual Outlet. Jardine it a bit louder then the Yosh though.

I did the Jardine. It's by far the lightest pipe at least for the '06. To me it has the perfect sound! Cruising is deep and pist sounding. However my only regret is the loudness after 8ks. Be ready. Plugs are a must. The yoshi to me just sounds too soft and sounds like a 2fiddy 2 stroke dirtbike.

hi all,

I'm Dutch, so please spare me on the 'bad-english-comments'.

I'd like to buy a RS-5 (yoshimura) myself, but I don't know if it'll fit my bike.
Of course it will fit the stock bike, but I have an undertail (hotbodies) which doesn't allow tailpipes to be too 'low'.

What I mean is; the stock exhaust fits right underneath (with little room to spare).
I now have a Leovince SBK exhaust... and that one doesn't fit. The piping behind the muffler hangs to much down... so to speak.
It prevents the undertail from fitting correctly... the exhaust touches the undertail.

Could ANY of you tell me if the Yoshi rs-5 hangs deeper (further down) than the stock exhaust ??

I know it must be a dumb question, but it would really help me out.

BTW... you guys shouldn't complain on pricing of this slip-on...
Where I come from, it costs 720 euros. That's about 1050 dollars!!!!!! So feel sorry for me :P

EDIT:

bike: 2005 600rr
undertail: Hotbodies official site

its still the RS5 on the 04 it just has a different end cap. It will sound slightly different and a lil louder than the o4 was. I think it is just minor engine changes though.
