Best sounding exhaust for 2008 R6?

I'm trying to shop around, but its tough to really tell through a youtube video how much of a difference each one has in sound and performance. Does anyone have any good advice?

Also what about pricing? Anyone have any good sites to order from?

Thanks

How loud do you want? How much are you wanting to spend? Slip on? Full system?

Re: Best sounding exhaust for 2008 R6?

I don't want it TOO loud...that first video posted above sounds like a mack truck...I'm looking only for a slip-on, and probably don't want to drop over $500.

I've heard about Yoshimura, Gyrt, and Two Brothers, but with all of the options out there and no one really in my area that I've run in to with any, it's hard to decide.

Thanks guys!

I would recommend either a Leo Vince slip on or a LOR slip on. Both sound great and I think are around 300 bucks.
