?'s about exhaust for 05 636

Im stuck on what exhaust I want to buy for my 2005 636. being an underseat, I dont like the looks of some so I boiled it down to a couple. 1. Yoshimura RS-5 in carbon fiber, 2. The carbon fiber Jardine, or the Hot Bodies undertail exhaust with color matched plastics. I would like your opinions on these brands if you have bought any of these.

Jardine


Yoshimura...not carbon fiber, but I think you can visualize it


Hot Bodies...doesn't show it but you get the sound

The Yoshimura would be a good choice, and the Jardine as well. The Hot Bodies looks badass, but I've heard a lot of negative things about its quality

Muzzy's styling has fallen off. The ZX-10 shorty they make looks hideous

Perhaps, but the bike's an '05... I'm sure you can find an exhaust that's a couple years old and still new...

Yeah the two brothers is pretty good to. But I think that Yoshi would look SWEET under there. Just make sure the dang thing doesnt stick way out like them... UGHH so ugly.

I have contemplated this for my '05 ever since it was new. I am still running OEM. The ones that have my attention are the Jardine dual outlet carbon Big $$, the Akropovic, and the Arata. I know the scorpion is a cool buy with lots of options. The Yosh has been met with mixed reveiws, some saying it hurt performance. Maybe with a PCIII and custom map?

I will ride mine stock as long as I can but think that, with no other changes, the Akra is the best bang for the $$. Too bad they don't come in Carbon...

Yeah,Kenny Roberts from Mr. Roberts neighborhood

The KR Tuned pipe looks good for the '05 but is still more expensive than tha Akro or Arata. Titanium with a carbon end cap. I still like the dual outlet Jardine all carbon best but it is the same price as the KR slip on Maybe I will either make up my mind or run into a great bargain before I wear this one out
