Finally made the plunge

I did it,

I finally made the plunge and ordered a set of yoshi slip ons. They should be in later this week.
Last night while I was researching the install on the yoshi website I noticed that you need to drill into a section of the yoshi clamp. Is that right? Do you just align the yoshi's with the original bracket holes and drill into the yoshi clamp? Just wanna make sure I don't screw it up when I install them and I know that there are a few ppl here who use them.

I have them ....and once you have them right where you want them .you drill a hole thew the exsisting hole in the slip-ons thew both pipes at the y joint of your exhaust and then put a rivit looking pice in the hole(this keeps the slip-on from turning) and the yosh's clamp goes over that ... make sure you have the clamps on first ........ im sure you will get a set of instructions with them and its really cake to do..

I wouldn't worry about drilling a hole and installing a rivet in your Yoshi's 'cause I had a set on my "05 919 and I never installed the rivet. The rear mounting strap is pretty robust so the cans really can"t rotate. Try them without the rivet and if you have problems you can always put them in later.

Nice wheels TK919. Are those custom wheels or did you polish them to be like that?

I'm guessing Mike is just adding to his list of reasons why he thinks Sato's are superior!

I have the Yoshi's and have also performed the index drilling too... Just like all moto maintenance functions, you have to have confidence in your knowledge, skills and abilities to start most DIY items. Some people are comfortable drilling into their shiny new pipes and some aren't. If you are not 100 % sure about performing maintenance or installing some new accessory on your motorcycle, don’t do it. If something goes wrong you could ruin your new pipe or worse - it flies off your bike on the freeway and kills your best buddy riding behind you. Most dealers’ service centers, would love to have your aftermarket installation business. But if you’re a good wrench, just follow the Yoshi instructions - like Tk919 says: piece of cake...
