Sell old style Graves exhaust and get new one?

I currently have a stainless steel full Graves exhaust on my 09 R1, but I'm considering maybe selling it to get the new LINK setup. I think if I do it, I'll get the 3/4 system and put the stock header back on. I'm tired of having to deal with loosening or removing the whole exhaust just to get the damn oil filter out. Besides, I don't think I'll even miss the couple HP I'll be losing by putting the stock header back on. I don't race or anything so the power won't really make much difference to me. Am I crazy for thinking about this? Has anyone else done something similar?

The stock header is much lighter than the s/s .. U might lose 1hp maybe

I'm looking at going from stock to the new Graves setup. What's the lowest price you have seen out there? Motomummy seems to have the best price i've seen. Slip ons - $989
