what do you think of used sato's i found

Just a question, do you think 600 plus shipping for a set of used sato's is a good price? They look like the older ones without the turned end pieces. Ti cans, with a ping/tiny dent on each side (really small but you can see it). Can the ti be polished again back to a nice satin finish? Should I scoop these up? They are the banzai, i was kind looking for the regular or high mount carbon, anyone wanna trade me for these if I get them? Thanks!!

Some people would pay it because they are Satos, but i think there are some better options out there.....that aren't dented up.

hahaha yeah, i was just about to reply on that. 600 for banged up Sato rearsets would be crazy considering they are 500 new.

Are these for an SP1? if so i could point you to some better options.

GPR also makes a carbon exhaust.....although i've never seen it in person on an RC51, i did have one on my R6 and it made some very impressive gains and was really nice quality.

I have..they are nice but not as loud as Satos....I was very fortunate to find some very clean Sato low mounts (I want to keep the pegs)
