I believe the Yoshi is one of the cheaper brands.

Fuck cheap...get what you like. Life is too short.

Trust me dude, get what you want. Not what is cheap. If you can get what you want for cheap thats good. But settling for something cause it is cheap, you will not like it in the long run. Take it from me. I bought a micron dual outlet for my 05 636. I wanted a full system and I had the money to get it but I got the slip-on cause it was cheaper. In the end, a month later I ended up buying the akra full race system that I wanted in the 1st place and having a slip-on sit in my closet. I sold it eventually in the classified forum but I sold it for $200 bucks cheaper than what I paid for it. I ended up losing money.

I know its no good to you, but there is a local mob here in OZ who make their own from slip ons to full systems. Price for a slip on $375 compared to $800. (aussie dollar)

Maybe see if there is a manufacturer or small customiser near you. The small shops (might not be dynotested and everything like the name brands) usually do a really nice job.

Before I ordered the Jardine I was hesistant to purchase it, as I thought it would look weird. Well, I'm glad I bought it, it looks great on my bike.

I find it interesting that you guys are so keen to go for the 'name brands' when some brands you do pay for R&D, whereas a custom job can be a real nice hand crafted piece which isnt mass produced, usually has a better warranty (small shops protect their name) and are different to anything anyone else has got- not just a different name to your mate. Keeping in mind these shops typically have years and years of experience in crafting quality parts...

There must be a different mentality over your way..

hey cas, Im from QLD but Im over in the States for work atm so I can't use your reference for the custom exhaust job. Just wondering how you went about finding such a shop as this? word of mouth? I think it would be too cool to have a custom good performance pipe (I like breath's too).

Originally found it by chance- just taking a ride through Moss Street (if your from Bris then you know it- revhead heaven)

But after that a few people told me about the place. Word gets around.
