Yoshi's vs Bafflectomy

Is there anyone on here that went from a bafflectomy to yoshimura cans?

I am thinking Yoshi's because they are suposed to be fairly quiet. I am hoping for something about half way between stock and bafflectomy.

I have listened to sound clips, but I dont think I can judge by that.

Thank you for any advice in advance

I had some de-baffled stockers on my VTR berfore going to my Yoshi's. The Yoshi's are much quieter than the de-baffled stockers but they still hae a nice rumble to them.

I used to have a Yoshimura full Race system and it was quite loud. So loud, in fact, that I got rid of it after only about 500 miles on the bike. I've always like the sound of the Yoshi's though, and would get another pair of slip-ons if the price was right...

Those are the same cans I have but my headers orient them in the stock positions. It's pretty loud but not offensive.

Thank you everyone for the responses. Looks like I will be on the lookout for some RS-3 yoshis

Wife commented about the biking being loud when she followed me home from work the other day.

When I finally discovered a distributor close-out on what were listed as Yosh RS-3 Titanium slip-ons with race baffles I jumped on 'em. Of course when they were delivered they had the Zyclone (quiet baffles) installed. I raised hell with the distributor and they sent me the correct race baffles, new packing, and rivets. This set-up IS louder than the previous modified stockers but not offensive. 5 or 6 years ago a friend at Yosh USA told me that demand for the "race" baffled slip-on system for the VTR's had dropped off so they were only making the quiet "Zyclone" version. The LeoVince slip-ons (with db killers removed) on my '07 Tuono are definitely louder.

It's too bad they didn't make the baffles easily removable to suit your taste's for the day.

Search: Bafflectomy, on the site.

Plenty of write ups on the subject.

leo vince pipes have 2 baffles. one on the end cap that is removable with 1 screw & and insert that goes between the mid pipe & can, a washer with holes in it. so it can be as quiet as stock ... a little louder ... or a nice rumble.
