Yoshimura or Delkevic?

I already know most of you are going to say Yoshi but I'm on a budget. I have only heard them both of them on Youtube. I have enough cash to buy the Delkevic's now, but i don't want to have buyer's remorse and wish I would have saved for the Yoshi's. Is there really that much difference in quality between the two? I know you guy's won't lead me astray.

I love my Delks! Perfect noise level for what I wanted. Enough growl at low RPM to sound mean but blends perfectly to the wind noise when at speed. And as you said they are great for your budget and our built in the good old USA in Englewood, CO

I'm a big Yoshi fan - have been for years. My previous bike (GS1200ss Suzuki - a model you did not get) had a full titanium Yoshi system. Some evenings I'd just go and look at the bends, welds and perfect fit.

Good times.

SS Yoshis on my 919. I was lucky to score a mint, low km set off this site at a great price.

BUT Bang for buck the Delkevics are a fine pipe and from WT reviews I'd don't think you'll regret the purchase.

don't think u can go wrong with either one. i had a yoshi on my katana and the sound alone would have made you think that it was much more bike than it actually was. i have the delks on my 919 and although not as sweet sounding as the yoshi i'm not disappointed especially considering the price. the fit is not as dead on as i would have liked but all in all i'm satisfied and have not thought about changing them out.

If anyone's looking for some Delks, I have a set that I am about to remove from my bike. In excellent condition, with about 5,000 miles on them. PM me if interested.

Go single sided. It provides the most weight savings and moves the most air.

All for under $300.
