i'm planning on getting them spring/summer next year along with pcIII, but $900 for slip ons is it really worth it? meaning performance gains, i know with slip ons you won't gain much but.....

IMO NO.

If you are spending 900 USD might as well save up a little bit more and get a full graves or akro with a pc3usb.

Or get a Graves oval slip on, thats what I want. You can get them for about 780 or so shipped with a Y pipe

I was going to go with the GYTR slip on, but after so much reading I heard to many stories about the CF cracking, and many peeps would buy the slip on and eventually upgrade to full. So my advice like everyone else is save a little more and just go with a full system

You can get them for less than 900$.You should be able to get them in the mid to upper 700's.
58cycle has them on ebay for 780ish.Or just go to your dealer and ask for their best price on a set.:beer Like I did..and the c.f. on mine hasn't cracked...yet..

If your gonna buy them at the same time just get a full akro system.All dealers will have gytr products but they may or may not sell other brands..
you have GYTR cans right? how happy are you with them and was it a big difference when you got the, my friend has a 03 GSXR1000 and he had slip ons before i forget which brand, he said that when he installed them he hardly felt any performance difference, now he installed a full yosh system and he says that the difference is huge

I'm happy with them although I had race baffled stockers before I got them and noticed very little difference till I got a pclll which made a huge difference :rock

You sound like you wont be satisfied with nothing less than a full system. Save some money and get a full system instead of slipons now and headers and y-pipe later..

i'm still debating but you're right i will defenitelly be more happy with a full system.

why not just save a little longer for a complete full system, by a single manufacturer, instead of piece mealing it together. A complete system will yield better results, have better fitment, and be alot less trouble or maintenance, because the pieces are designed to work/fit properly :yesnod

I'd look at Akro, Arata, Arrow, M4, Sato, TI-Force, all are good full systems, and work well with other mods down the road . . . PCIII, stacks, race filter, etc. :thumbup
