HEY FELLAS.....

i have a dilema here.....

which to keep, which to sell....
both have the same part #, and are for the same application (checked with yosh)

but one has the external collector (older model), and the other just the cross balance tubes.....

weight isnt a issue here.....

ive used the smaller tubed one, (excellent IMO), but not the bigger one yet......

anyone know something bout these i dont??? (im sure ya do!!??!!)

TIA

IMO keep the one on the right (the one with the cross tubes)

I could never understand what Yosh was thinking with the external tubes.

The one on the right does look sweeter (as if its gonna matter once under the bike). If you're gonna get rid of the other, how much $$ are you lookin' to sell it for? I've got a mid pipe and can that needs a good home (header)
.

Let me know whats up

I've got the one with external tubes. I got them poslished yesterday but did not bother having the header pipes polishes, only the end can and the last bit of pipe as it is a high mount and that long bit of shiny pipe would look nice with new polish. All the rest would be under the plastic any way. You can choose any of them, I WOULD GO for the lighter one, whichever. How much weight saving on standard pipes should I expect?

For performance, keep the one that one on the right. Your bike will benenfit more from the one on the right. The one on the left is for the older model and Yosh obviously bettered its shit when they made the real "duplex" on the right.
