The Yoshi exhausts for our bikes are slung out the side slightly. I have the Yoshi TRC fitted to mine. Slightly different end cap. It should sit the same as the one in your link




I have the silencer fitted to make it a little more muted, but I don't like an obnoxiously load exhaust. It still has a nice rumble though.

A friend had the 2Bros fitted to his 650R, but that was stupidly loud. It looks neater tucked under the bike, but looks are all subjective, and it's up to you what you think looks good.
One tip if you happen to look at the 2Bros system, whatever you do, DO NOT get the Carbon Fibre Canister. It will crack, and break off. I've lost count of the amount of people I have seen complaining about this can, and at the time, 2Bros had not stepped up to the plate to reimburse customers. They may have changed the design since, but I cannot confirm.
The issues supposedly starts from the vibrations of our motors.

I Have the carbon on mine as well as a few of my friends and we havent had any problems at all but i also dont own a 650. :).
Yeah, it's been pretty isolated to the Parallel twin engine that has caused them problems.:thumb:

I don't believe there is a difference, it's just a look.

Hey guys, thanks for all your help. I finally made up my mind what exhaust to get and installed it this Saturday. Its a 2Brothers exhaust as seen on the pic. I did not take a picture but it looks basically like on that pic

i installed the exhaust actually twice because the very tip of the fairing is touching the exhaust. And it seems like there was no way of getting around that.

And I i'm also worried about water getting inside the exhaust if I drive in the rain, or if I have the bike standing in the rain. Is there any way at all to prevent that.

Thanks

The fairing touches on mine as well. Simplest solution is placing a couple of washers behind the fairing on the bottom bolt that holds the fairing in place.
If you are wondering which bolt I am referring to, look above at the photo you posted, and draw a straight line from the end of the brake lever. I have two washers behind my fairings, but could probably go with 3 if I replaced the bolt with a longer one.
In terms of water, I don't think it's all that bad an issue, but if you're concerned, get hold of a rubber exhaust plug like they use for dirt bikes. Plug it when not in use, and remove it prior to starting it.

Water is a non issue. If your riding the bike the exhaust gases will be pushing out not allowing water in the bike and when your bike is parked it may get water in it but it will come out when you crank the bike and the moisture left In the can will come Out as the bike runs in the form of steam. How do you like the sound? Is it what you were looking for
