So I am about to order my new exhaust but can't decide between the two.

I want something that sounds good but not annoying. I prefer throaty over screaming.

I am afraid the Two Brothers isn't going to be loud enough and the Yoshi is going to be to loud.

Thoughts?

I like the weave of the CF on the Yoshi more then the Two Brothers myself. I'm sticking with a stock pipe and painted heat shield though.

I'm staying stock as well. At least for as long as the novelty of having a quiet bike lasts :)

It's a very personal taste so I wouldn't rely on our opinions too much.
I like the sound of the Two Brothers' pipe myself. A little quieter. A little deeper.
It's really hard to get a true sense of it from the videos (not all mics are created equal) but the Two Brothers' pipe almost sounds like a helicopter at idle.

On edit: Normally Id go with the pipe that has the flattest torque curve on the dyno but for this bike I think it's a moot point. They are all pretty close performance wise so it's just a matter of which sounds best :)

If what i see online is right..$350 for the yoshi slipon.......$550 or more for the two bothers?
I think i just answered your question :)

Unless money isnt an issue with you...in that case I have seen many other exhausts besides just those 2 that have came out in the past month or so for the 2011 cbr250r....do an internet search

I just installed the Yoshi slip-on. Its loud, but it has a deep throaty sound that I like. I got mine for $300 from a local bike shop (talked them into giving me a 25% discount since I bought my bike there). So I'm sure there has to be a place that would give you a similar price.

not so. They are actually right around the same price.




it is sold out right now at the motorcycle superstore :mad:

You must have been looking at the Black Series slip on. The Black Series retails for $560

I'm rocking the Two Brother's and loving it. Everything I've heard about the Yoshi pipe is that it's got a similar sound but alot higher volume. I'm not a fan of not being able to hear things around me, I just wanted my bike to be heard as I come through intersections or blind turns(that's my excuse at least). The Two Brother's does that just fine for me. But as it's been stated, it's a matter of personal opinion.

I got the yosh and its just to dam loud for me, but I know someone who installed the two brothers and he says his is to loud also. I had a Yamaha R1 with duel yosh mufflers and it wasnt as loud as this little 250???

I'm in a similar situation as you, Volcom - Yoshi or Two Bros. Since you went with the Two Bros, the website says it comes with a P-Tip (sound suppression). Did you get to choose which one (the P1 -3/4 db, or the P1X - -7/8 db)?

If you get a chance to hear the difference without and with the sound suppression installed, I'd really appreciate some comments as to how it sounds.

Thanks!

I just installed my 2Bros Black Aluminum this morning. It's loud. I'm gonna mod the stock tip using an old chopper trick before I spring the bucks for the P1X tip. I'll post up my results.

At cruising load, it's not bad, but this is a 250 and most of the time your on the gas somewhat. The more load, the louder it is.

I have the 2Bros carbon and have heard both 2Bros(obviously) and the Yoshi(USA) and prefer the deep 2Bros, Yoshi(USA) bit more high pitched. But the Japanese Yoshimura the 77 series rocks, but it'll cost you about $1200us.

So I went to my local dealer today to throw a leg over a bike. Low and behold! They had one with a Yoshimura can installed!! They were even nice enough to take it outside and start it up for me. Theirs had the db killer tip installed. Videos do not do the Yoshi can any justice. It is a deep grunty sound, that growls loudly when you get on the throttle. At idle, the exhaust is quite tolerable, reminding me somewhat of my old VT750 Shadow with straight pipes. With gentle acceleration, you won't wake the neighbourhood up in the morning. Let it rip and cars will definitely know you're there.

I love the unique look of the Yoshi exhaust and I think I've decided to go that route, WITH the db killer installed.

Just an update, old chopper trick (washer or thumbscrew a right angle to exhaust flow - and it's adjustable!) didn't work. I think it's close to the end. In fact, when fully closed, I think it got louder! Closed halfway seemed to make some diff, not much.

Looks like I'm spending money for some packing and the quiet tip.

Nothing worse than a vehicle that makes a **** load of noise and doesn't accelerate to match the ruckus <cough>HD</cough>
