Got the new flush ones. One big advantage of this new set-up is that you can remove them in a few minutes and remove or replace the quiet core as you see fit. Plus they polish up really nice :-)

If it is the look of the down-turned outlet pipe that you like it would not take much to have a bit of curved alloy welded on to the new style outlet - clean up the welds and polish - best of both worlds.

Yeah, I was thinking of having a local shop fab up some down-pipes if i am not successful, just not sure on the cost.

So how do you like the pipes with regards to sound...the stockers are just way too quiet. Always loved the Yoshi's on my F4i's. Do you run with/without the quiet core? How does it compare to stock? My old RS-3 yoshi did not have that, you either bought a street or race baffle.

Not trying to butt in, but I was looking for the same thing and never found them. Even searched scrapyards for them. That being said, I usually have the silencers in which makes them just a bit louder than stock, but sounds much better. Without the silencers, they yell pretty good. I just don't like the droning while running on the highways. It's not obnoxious, but louder than I am used to. 3 simple hex screws and the endcap comes off. The silencer just slides into the pipe, so it's a 5 minute job to go back and forth. They are a year old and the finish is holding up great.

I have looked at pictures of the tipped cans and I can't see any screws present indicating they are removable. Just a theory, but I think you would need the whole can, or have some welded on. Maybe Yoshimura will respond with something.

From what I can see the old turn down end caps are not removable - they are riveted into the canister.

Re Yoshis - loving them - with the noise eaters fitted they are a pretty mellow pipe - your neighbors will love them - they are louder and deeper than stock and the noise gets a kick at around 5,000 rpm. A really good touring pipe with the inserts in.

Without they are pretty rowdy - too loud for me personally.

I am presently making a 'medium' insert that is shorter than the Yoshi one so it will offer a sound somewhere between the two.
And that another reason I like the new design - I can muck around with stuff like that! Plus I prefer the look of the machined end-cap - very flash.

I was also surprised to find there was a added 'zip' in the midrange, plus the engine appears to be a bit quicker revving. And the mufflers are a lot lighter than the stock ones which is noticable flicking the bike side to side.
