A full system is capable of making more power, lighter and is cooler to look at and talk about.
If you don't race or don't want 100% of possible power from your bike, you don't need it.
A full system will set you back twice the $$$ of a slip-on.

Most street riders only need the slip-on for the sound and bling.

Racers wouldn't have anything other than a full system to get the extra (average) 5 hp and weight savings. :2cents:

A slip-on doesn't do a whole lot ... the stock can is restrictive, but not amazingly so.

Real power is made in the header design. Except for the latest crop of 600s, you'll see a 5% - 8% gain in power with a full system.

Roach, are you saying you wont see a HP gain with the new 600's due to their header design etc....just wanted to clear it up a little.....

Yup. The latest 600s (with the exception of the GSXR600) have very well designed exhaust systems in regard to the headers because the market is so competative - the factories want theirs to be the fastest. Putting a full-system on them, we're only seeing a 3-4hp increase with a stock motor. Unless you're racing one, there's little reason to buy a full system for them.

My VTR's header is designed right. Therefore Slip-ons are all that is needed. A full system's gains are minimal and not worth the cost/hassle. Way to go Honda :dthumb:

Bull, I have a full race exhaust on the SV. Yoshimura RS3 stainless, the full exhaust makes a world of a difference. The slip on all you would notice is the sound., with the full you feel and hear the difference.

If the ECU is tuned to match.

Bull don't know what he has. :lol:
Most don't when they buy a used bike. :crazy:
I was told a F3 had a jet kit :wbs: once and when I thought it was running to lean. I decided to up them a bit more. During disassembly, I found stock jets with reset needles. :rant:

Full system exhausts make a world of difference on a Kat. But if its not in your budget, u can atleast sound cool w/a slip on. :D
