I have the RS-5 CF with cone & love it...the sound is great, looks really good, & you can't beat the price! I would have considered an Arata or Akra...but too much $$$.

I have the carbon RS-5 s/o with a PC3 and a custom map. I'm way beyond happy with it.

nice... that carbon fiber looks sweet.. my bike is black and silver so im thinking its gonna look really good.. i was going to get a devil but it kinda scares me that not many people have them.. i think id rather go with a popular brand... how is the installation on it?? is it easy or should i just have a shop do it??

Installation was literally 30 minutes. There are a couple places where you have decisions to make like shielding etc.

Talking Rs-5

I don't think the money is an issue as how much are we talking about in what is a one time purchase .....I think all of these systems/slip ons are way over priced as what are they when you think about it... The titanium/carbon fiber can can't cost a whole lot more to produce and sells for an additional 25% plus; how is that possible...?

I think the RS-5 is the best looking and if you look inside what's the difference between any of them... Now I don't wanna get anybody pissed off or get any death threats but I think they're all the same in function...

What I did notice was the striking difference in weight between the stock can and pipe and the Yoshi .... I was shocked at how much the stock parts weight. It would be worth the money just for the weight savings alone, the sound is a freebie as far as I'm concerned....

it sounds good, but the full system doesnt do much. I have the full which i got off egay for 250 bucks. You should hear the Leo Vince.... that sounds good. The new Akrapovic hex for the 05-06 looks so clean. You should check those out. Talk to one of the vendors and im sure they'll hook you up.

low-hung rs-5....

My rs-5 is stainless and doesn't fit a high as some I've seen.... I don't have a problem with the look off stainless in fact I prefer it as my bike is black and I don't want the exhaust to blend in and to my view spoil the the look of my de-junked tail section... Also fitting real high would cause heat issues that I don't have now...

I have the Yoshi RS-5. I used it for all last summer, but took it off because its too loud. Really annoying in the freeway commutes. Plus you can hear my wheelies for Miles. I through the stocker back on.

Bungle in the Jungle!!!

I bought the rs-5 carbon cone from Flatout on Ebay Today!! Cant wait to install it and hear it! I think the carbon will look great with the all silver and black look of my 06. Cant wait to be rid of the stocker. Even thou it will be setting in the garage for the next couple months. Indiana (You gotta love our weather.)

Had my RS5 CF cone slip on for over a year on my 05 and it sounds just as sweet as the day i bought it. Mid range loudness at 7krpm pretty boomy and it sounds sweet all the way to redline, and mine pops between shifts, and sounds sick. Everyone I have ridden with loves it. My sis has the arata on her 03 and everyone likes the sound of mine compared to her RR. both sound nice though


Aww, they love each other, but are Jealous of who gets my attention.
