Sato Slip-on or Full System

Hey guys, getting sorta confused lately by some of the RC-51 postings.

Question is Did Sato ever make a full system exhaust for our bikes or did they only ever offer slip on.

Seeing a lot of sellers listing Sato Full racing exhaust where all I see is an exhaust canister attached to a midpipe by springs. From what I know, full systems do not have springs attaching the canister to the midpipe.

Sato only made slip-on systems, low-mount (most power), and hi-mount (Banzai).
I've also seen a mid-mount system (somewhere between a low-mount and Banzai), but it was discontinued ages ago.

Full systems usually do have springs attaching everything together.
At least my Akrapovic full system does.

1) The head pipes attach to the exhaust flanges via springs.
2) The head pipes attach to the collector section via springs.
3) The mid pipes join the collector section via springs.
4) And finally the mufflers attach to the mid pipes via springs.
Slip joints and springs everywhere.

Doesn't that make for a loose system?

No...have you ever pulled some of these springs?? They have a solid fit.

First off, the pipes are a very snug slip fit.
Second, each of these springs require a hefty spring puller just to stretch them to each attachment point.
No way the pipes will be loose. Often it's a bitch to separate the sections.

yeah, any new system i've seen always has springs. I've only ever seen one system without. My arrow slip ons had no springs. Cans were welded to midpipes.
