Question Yoshi RS5: Slip-on vs. Full System, Worth it?

Does anyone have experience with the benefits of going for the full system vs. just getting the slip-on?

I had been planning on getting the Yoshi Carbon slip-on, but I'm not having much luck finding any in stock. The full systems, on the other hand, seem to be readily available.

So, I'm thinking what the heck, why not just get the whole thing?
(I know it's more $$$, but aside from that)

Is there any significant difference in performance between the two? How about sound, is one louder than the other? Ease of install? From what I can tell swapping out the headers looks almost easier than the just doing the can on the back. Someone told me that stock plastic might not fit over some aftermarket headers, is that true? If so, is it an issue with Yoshi RS5?

Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
-Tony

i am just going to tell you what i have read here...

it will be a waste of money to get the full system yoshi because you won't be able to tell much of a difference between it and the slip/on performance wise.. the sound will be pretty much the same as the s/o and it will be a little harder to install...

s/o wise yoshi is fine though - when you buy a s/o get what you think sounds/looks good because performance wise they will all be pretty similar (in MOST cases)

again this is just what i have read...

so 500.00 for 2 hp is a good deal??

Arata is very pricey when you can get another brand slip on for half the cost and get the same hp gains...wich is very slim.

Arata slip on vs stock 05 600RR graph:



and no, not worth the money for the full Yosh over slip on. No gains over the slip on, just more money

Thanks for all the feedback fellas. I guess I'll keep looking for the s/o and use the savings to buy a GPR stabilizer.

I'd think MRI or someone similar would at least match but more often than not beat anyones price, so whatever you get quoted, make sure you check with a site sponsor first and tell them what they're up against.

BTW, I'd use the extra money to get the fuel sorted via a pc and mapping. Get the most from the slip on and make the bike much nicer to ride.

Let me interject an example of the rider wants to make his 600rr, a full race/track bike, no street. Would the extra money for the full system be worth it then??

AGAIN, NOT with the Yoshi. However, if you are talkin ANY slip on vs a GOOD full system, then YES it is worth the money, BUT not comparing Yosh to Yosh.

Again that is true when you're talking these makes of system. But if you want h.p ditch it and get a GOOD full system. But if you wanna stay with the brand you have, don't waste your money.

Exclamation Yoshi CF RS5 S/O...made of unobtanium???

Does anyone know where to get one? I've tried ridersinc, indybikes, all the local shops, kneedraggers.com, you name it.

Everyone is out of stock, and from the looks of it 1/2 the riding season will be over before they will have one.

If someone on this board has recently ordered from a dealer who has some in stock please drop me a line and let me know where to take my business.

Thanks,
-T

Here's the scoop on the slip-ons, Yoshimura ordered a multimillion dollar shipment of carbon fibre from a manufacturer which all turned out to be bunk, so they simply could not meet the demand. I ordered the RS-5 slip from Indysuperbikes about 2 or 3 weeks ago, they said Yoshimura predicted they would be in by the end of the month (May), however that came and went so i cancelled the order.

Besides, I came to the conclusion that for a couple horsepower, a slip isn't worth it anyway. Go get yourself a sterring damper, some levers, rearsets, do a sprocket conversion, upgrade your brake lines, buy a power commander.. any one of the above in my opinion is more worth it than a slip on.

Or just go for a full exhaust system, like people have been suggesting. Just my .02. :)
