I have been impressed with the two Brother full exhaust system. Sounds amazing and build quality looks great. I'm old school. It was common when I started riding as a kid in the late 80's & early 90's and got my first bike-a Honda Interceptor 250- that there were de facto bikes and exhaust brand pairs. Kawasaki & Muzzy's/Yamaha with Vance & Hines/Suzuki with Yoshimura. Forgot what was on my Honda. Those were the big brands. Now it has expanded a lot. Leo Vince, Akarapovic, M4, Werkes, Arrow, Scorpion, etc. What a time to be a rider with all these awesome bikes and available parts.

Now I was leaning on a Scorpion full exhaust but it's pricey. Deciding between the Yoshimura or Akrapovic. Not getting an auto tune so want to make sure I get an optimized housing from a boutique bike shop that makes maps for the exhaust I get, but that isn't sacrosanct just my inclination. It might not matter much, but it helps IMHO. I think those two offer a good value. I've already dropped like $1500 on parts and haven't even added an exhaust or PC5 yet. By the time you're done with an alarm, GPS, GoPro, rearsets, rear and front shock, brake pads, tires, grips, sliders, spools, etc you've already hit the retail price of the bike in parts! One doesn't have to replace all those things but I want to eek out more performance, improved ride with suspension upgrades, improve safety with commensurate braking, and make sure my bike is ecure. Oh, and make it look more better.

I really dig that 2Bros VALE sound! Can't decide if I like the Akrapovic or Yoshimura bsound better but that isn't the factor that I am purchasing on. Both are comparable. Basically comes down to either the silver Akra or CF Yosh. Hmm.

Bikes are expensive things lol. But its all worth it. Yeah sure you get nothing much for a resale when adding accessories etc. but it makes your bike yours, customed to you, so it is worth every cent you spend. I really love the Two Bros Sound and always been impressed with the change in performance. I havnt ran any other brand, as Ive always been satisfied each purchase and go ack to them, I still researched and compared the differences online to see how it faired, but still always went back to TBR, so I cant mention too much for the others in sound/performance first hand, but it is best to listen to as much different videos to compare and check out stats off the manufacturers websites etc. Throw a video up here of your bike once you've done the exhaust. I would love to hear it!

M4 and Akras slip ons seem to be the cheapest and give a note. But to be honest I havnt found the sound appealling to me. I ended up at red lights next to another R3 which had the akra full system and it really didnt compare to the roar my TBR was putting out. Ive found the TBR full system to have the largest power gain over the other available exhausts, but it is the most expensive.
Best thing to do if your set to a budget is check out whats available in that range and watch as many different videos to be able to get a good sense of what she will sound like. Everyones got a different taste to exhaust notes. But my next fav sound is the M4 from seeing other R3 vids.

Slips on do give it more sound than the stock exhaust. Nothing compared to a full system though. Slip on is a good way to give it a note for cheap and depending on your local laws will not give hassles for emissions and noise pollution etc. There is usually a big difference in price from slip on to full system, so most people opt for the slip on.
All in all its just a personal thing, I always go for the full system. What I paid compared to a slip on probably doesn't warrant power changes etc, but its what I wanted and love it to bits. I like to just go with the heart, get what you want and dont let the ol brain try to make reason of stuff lol.

If you want a reference as to how little a slip on will do, take the stock muffler off and crank it. It doesn't change the sound much.
