Best Y-pipe?

Ok ok, I know best is a relative term, so your option, or facts to back it up on which brand y pipe is better and why. Cost vs installation vs looks vs fitment, ect. Looking to replace my cat, have a 2bros currently.

I think the universe wants me to get the TOCE slipons and the Y pipe. That set up was the first video to come up from my search. I was a bit disappointed when I saw that The Brothers exhaust had a more aggressive exhaust note. BUT....I found this setup with the M4 Y pipe (Mid Pipe??) and TOCE slipons. it sounds wayyyyyy better to me.

go with what u like the look of. the my 09 r1 is more bike then ill ever need and use in terms of speed. if you like the toce go for it, it doesnt matter to some if it goes backwards hp wise or weight wise etc.
Personally i dont like them but each to there own! would be a boring world if we all liked and owned the same thing

What set up do you have your your bike? I figure a power commander and tune would fix the issues of the HP loss and higher fuel consumption of the bike. Yeah it would be weird if everyone liked and owned the same thing.

I am very happy with my M4 Y pipe, but I am not sure how the newer models like it.

I've got the M4 Y pipe with Carbon Fiber TERMIGNONI slip on exhaust on my 06, the sound is to die for, great fitment on both Y pipe and slip on.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I also have a PCIII and dyno tune, it runs perfect, power band is strong and very linear from low rpms to red line.

Akra Y-pipe and Termi carbon fiber cans on my 08. I ended up cutting a bit off the the Y-pipe where they connect to the cans so they didn't hang out the back too far. PC5 and custom tune, runs and sounds great. The quality of the Y-pipe is top notch :

Thanks everyone for your responses, next quick question, anybody have black powder coated pipes? Does the powder coating last with the heat?
