Yoshimura R77 Street Slip-On Exhaust Honda CBR500R / CB500X / CB500F 2013-2015
First of all, it is true you can not really appreciate the sound by listening to sound clips on the web. The pipe sounds awesome;
deep, guttural and on deceleration it growls like an animal.
the stainless steel with black and red Yoshimura logo is perfect look for 2015 white and red Honda CB500f ABS.
I'm very pleased and want to ride all the time. I didn't put the silencer, I don't think it is necessary.
Installation on the other hand wasn't as easy as others claim it.
I had to put the rubber gasket on the bracket and it is a pain,
especially in hot Virginia sun but it is no problem.
Also I was surprised to see great improvement in performance,
in higher RPM's it is quicker and less tight, it feels as though it can breathe easier!

Solid sounding exhaust.
For a bike that otherwise sounds like a weedwacker, this exhaust does good job. The pipe adds some nice throatiness to the exhaust, and has some nice pop and burble on deceleration. I didn't install the extra baffle because it's not really necessary on this bike. In the cavernous streets of NYC it can reverb in your helmet in some weird ways at low speeds, but once you leave the city streets it's all good.

This is the first upgrade you should make to your new CBR500R
Purchased here on Revzilla on Tuesday, October 6th. Ordered 3-day shipping, but had it at my doorstep two days after placing the order, as there just happened to be a distribution center nearby.
In any case, installation was very straightforward. The only thing that was even a mild hassle was getting the silicone insulator into the mounting bracket (you'll see what I mean). Everything else was a snap. I *think* I have a small exhaust leak where the new unit mounts to the pipe, but from what I understand, fixing that should be as simple as adding a little high-temperature silicone to gasket the joint.
The difference between this exhaust and the stock unit is like night and day, and becomes evident the instant you hit the starter. A deep, perfect burble when idling; a nice, throaty rumble when accelerating; and some gorgeous snap and pop when decelerating. There are plenty of YouTube videos giving you an idea of what the R77 sounds like, but none of them do it justice; it simply has to be heard in person. I don't notice any increase in power or performance, but that's not why you buy this exhaust.
As for looks, that's another area where this unit represents a vast improvement over what Honda gave us. I have the carbon fiber model, and it looks amazing slung up against my red CBR. It really is a work of art.
Get this thing. Sure, it's pricey. But so was your bike. It deserves the one modification that, more than any other, will greatly improve your riding experience. No more sewing machine sound; no more riding around with what looks like HVAC ducting on the side of you bike. Plunk down your 500 bucks and don't look back.

Must have upgrade
I didn't ride much before the exhaust mod, and I was still learning how to ride at the time, I don't know how the performance might have been improved. But the sound and look alone are worth for the money. I only hope Yoshimura would make more stuff for cbr500r :(

This pipe looks and sounds great. Just the right rumble when idling and light engine pop when decelerating. No remapping necessary on a Honda CBR500R. Easy install took 30 mins.

Don't ride without
The CB500F stock exhaust left much to be desired. Added this exhaust and my bike sounds like a real street bike. Not too loud for the neighbors at low RPM but has a nice tone once you get on the throttle. Took about 10 mins to install and shipped quick from revzilla. If you own a part of the Honda 500cc family I wouldn't think twice about putting one of these on.
