Okay, so originally I was going to purchase a Two brothers slip-on carbon fiber black series for my 2011 ninja 250R, but then I started looking at some of the Yoshimura slip-ons and now I'm between a rock and a hard place. I watched some videos on sound for both of them, but I'd like to get some opinions from people on here that know what they are talking about that could tell me overall, which one would offer me the best bang for my buck, including look, sound, performance. Thanks!!!

You can never go wrong with a yoshi! But I happened to stumble upon a dyno chart somewhere a while back that I can’t find at the moment, but it was between a yoshi and a two bro slip-on on a 250, I cant recall the numbers off the top my head but I do remember the two brothers peaked higher than the yoshi across the chart. So Performance would be two bro, Sound to me would be two bro (but I also love the yoshi sound) and personally the best look would be a black series two bro. But that’s just me...too each his own I guess. Also I heard that CF slip-ons tend to break and fall apart easy FYI...

Gah! I gotta find that dyno chart then. The carbon fiber black series TB slip on I would by is so sexy and sounds good, I just wasn't sure if a YOSHI would pump out more power, that's my main reason for asking opinions on here. Thanks :)

The difference between the two slip-ons is less than 1hp. In fact, that's the case across the board for ANY slip-on build for the ninja 250.... Also, the slip-on simply plateaus the top-third of the rev range. This means the 250 w/ stock exhaust peaks around 9,200rpm's and then starts producing less power as you go higher than that. A slip-on opens up the exhaust enough to where from 9,200 - redline (13K) you're still producing the same 25/26hp.... You won't see the extra 4-5hp come in until you get a full exhaust (which includes the headers and midpipe - one piece for the 250, and the slip-on).

Danmoto is super cheap, and the only complaint I have of mine is the paint faded fairly quickly, but it's still going strong 10K miles in.... A popular "cheap" combo is the Tyga header/mid pipe and the Danmoto slip on. That's like 5hp for less than $500 shipped, I think.... That's if you do the install/tuning yourself though.

Here is my danmoto:http://www.newninja.com/forums/f97/dan-moto-exhaust-139-a-5644-13.html

Coin, please post links to your tyga/danmoto setup... I can't find it for the life of me...

Before this site, I have never heard anything about Dan Moto exhausts, So I am a little weary of purchasing one... I did listen to a few of them on youtube doing some fly by's and they didn't sound terrible, but the deep sound out of a TB's is just deliciousness.. I don't think I would do a full exhaust on this bike because like I said, I Plan on upgrading in the near future anyways, so a slip on will do it's purpose of a better look and sound and slightly more power than what is coming from my stock exhaust now..

Okkkayyy HOLD ON A SECOND! haha, I'm excited, don't mind me.. But I Just came across some videos with HMF racing exhausts that sound pretty good, again I have never heard of the company. Has anybody heard of or have one or have any experience first hand with HMF racing exhausts that can put their 2 cents in? :)

I Love the 2 Bros Black series :thumb:
I'd be straying from the Yoshi, everyone has a Yoshi. I would be doing something different if it were my $'s & bike :)
My favorite - Jardine GP 1 - is LOUD :dance:


& G.P.R. they have some really nice stuff & puts out a nice note too ;)

Have you seen the GSXR mod done on the 250? The single best looking exhaust mod that can be done :p of course I am biased, since I had it done to the dragon(search dragon, and it will come up)
I have the yoshi on my 650R, and I am more than happy with the quality, sound, and added performance. It's also a nice looking pipe on the 250R.
Either way, you can't lose!

GSXR exhaust on 250r? I have not seen that mod yet actually, I'll go check it out on youtube now.. I probably still either go with a TB, YOSHI, or HMF

Yeah, there is a bit of welding and cutting to be done, and I needed help since I've never done that stuff, but it is possibly the best looking and cohesive looking exhaust.

I'd post a picture of the dragon, but the stupid iPad won't let me cut and paste properly. There are plenty on here though!

if you plan on upgrading bikes in the near future why put an exhaust on at all? If you are dead set on putting an exhaust on, best bang for buck is the DanMoto. I have it on my Ninja, it sounds REALLY good in person, even with the "silencer" it's pretty loud, has a nice rumble at idle and really rips once you get past 6k on the revs. Plus for $130 shipped (what I paid), it doesn't kill your wallet on something that you don't plan on keeping.

I upgraded bikes, and I'm really glad I didn't pour a ton of money into the exhaust, especially when the DanMoto sounds so good, also gives it a nice "race" look (I have the CF version)
