Yoshimura RS5 Street Slip-On Exhaust Honda CBR600RR 2009-2016
First off the part arrived fast! Install was easy pipe sounds great. Good sound deep note, it's not too loud cruising it'll scream when you get on it. Overall I have no regrets great company yoshimura knows exhaust. I do recommend.

This exhaust is awesome for a slip on
I got this exhaust the week before Christmas as an early gift to me and was super excited to get it on. The installation was very simple; some simple tools and the ability to follow a cutting pattern for the heat shield are required. To be 100% honest, getting the old exhaust off was the hardest part. The exhaust sounded great when I first started it up and has gotten even better after letting it be broken in.
For the people worried about the chance at more heat after removing the stock heat shield, don't worry at all. From what I can tell there's no extra heat being emitted that you can feel in the seat.

looks and sounds AWESOME....
this slip on is easy to install (watch youtube video)....SEXY....LOUD....Performance is BETTER....throttle response is instant use to have a fraction of a second lag not any more. Downside after first test ride 10 miles, the carbon fiber canister (SO SEXY) had tiny bits of rock imbedded in it :( the more you ride, the MORE DAMAGE to canister.....I should have bought the cheaper aluminum can with carbon tip.

Great slip-on to buy!!
This Yoshimura slip-on worked great for my 2010 CBR600RR. It sounds & looks great!! The install went OK, but did take some time due to all the undertail heat tape. But in the end it was all worth it.

Great looking slip-on
The reason I bought this was mostly for looks and it really cleans up the tail of my cbr. I was initially concerned about sound but after a recent day at Laguna Seca I'm not concerned any more, Laguna is sound limited to 92db and they have a sound check booth on an uphill straight to the side of the track. I started the day easy but by the end I was hammering it up that straight and no sound violation all day.
I do have the provided insert installed.

2014 Honda CBR600RR
Install was much easier than I expected. Reading reviews many people said this takes over 2 hours. If you have all your tools handy, it shouldn't take more than 45 minutes. The only step during install that was slightly difficult is the muffler mounting strap. To tighten the bolt & nut is a hellacious angle, definitely have a universal joint ready for that bolt and nut to save yourself some headache. Other than that, everything went smooth, no issues. Also, there's plenty of YouTube videos to assist, even step by step for the 2013-2015 CBR600s which make a nice reference to reduce any guesswork.
Pipe sounds great, under 6000 rpms it's a mild tone (easier on the ears), 7000 and up is when it really starts to humm and scream. Any long distance highway driving at 6000+ rpms I recommend ear plugs. I haven't used the silencer that comes with the pipe yet, but if I was going on a road trip I might try that out to save my ears.
I went for the stainless because I was shopping for price, definitely glad I did.
This does not block the rear tail lamp on the 2013-2015 CBRs as the tip tapers down enough for a clear view of the lamp from the rear.
I can't say much for durability since I've only had the pipe on for 300 miles but so far so good. I believe I read somewhere to consider repacking after 3000 miles. With the price of this pipe being sub $500 I couldn't be happier even if that's the case.
Couldn't be happier with pipe.
I'm using in conjunction with R&G fender eliminator, and TST industries integrated tail lamp & blinkers.

Nothing beats a Yoshi!
I chose Yoshimura after I found out how nice it was by putting one on my R1. Everything you needed to install the part is included and being that it was my girlfriend's bike it was going on, I let her do the install. (I only guided a few times but she did all the work). The sound/tone is excellent and what you expect from the Yoshimura company, that low beefy tone I have come to know and love. Carbon fiber finish is tough and looks great too.
