Two brothers

I wanted to get a little feedback on. The two brothers exhaust system they are offering for the sp1. They have a high mount system that looks good. I wanted to see if it's a good system to run. Or should I think about another system. It's becoming harder to find a good high mount system for the sp1. I was looking at the blackdragon system for my bike but cost is something that will help make my mind up as well. Here is a link to the exhaust system I been looking at http://www.twobros.com/cgi-bin/shopp...-RC51-SP1.html.

You might get a fair amount of feedback on this. We were just recently talking about TwoBrothers. Personally I don't like them much, except that they are in a more affordable price range. But Yoshimira is about the same. And a better exhaust. I've yet to see any TwoBrothers actually on a RC51, but I've read more bad than good about them. I've seen them on 2 VFR's and thought they were crap. I'd way rather get a set of Yosh's in the same price range, or better yet, just keep following anything exhaust and wait till a nice used pair come's up for sale.
What price range you looking to stay in?
I know Mark at BlackDragon. One of our members, Revolution, bought a system from him and was happy with it. I also bought a custom system from him. If you want more info about BD's, you can PM me. I'm going to do a full review on my BD's, but not ready yet. I had an issue with one of the silencers, and waiting to get that resolved.

My suggestion is keep on looking and researching. If you look in my Gallery, those are used yosh's that I picked up for $500.

Start on post #12...
https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/sho...?t=5280&page=2

And this, start on #286. He found those on our For Sale for asking price of 1050 I believe. Sato's are coveted!!!

I'm not a fan of Two Brothers, for quite a few reasons. My suggestion is GPR. Italian company which is popular in Europe but not so much in the US. They make nice systems and make pretty good gains too, for a good price.
If you have the money, find a set of Yoshimura or Sato mids and buy a set of Ladybirds from Simon.

i got the high mount two bros on my sp1 and it sounds amazing. i know alot of people dont like it because its not a sato or gpr which are great exhausts that perform great no doubt, but i got 2 kids and a wife so i couldnt afford anything that nice. i traded my yosh 2-1 for the two bros, the neighbors hate it but who cares haha.

That's a misstatement Hambone. That's not why we don't like them. I'm not picking on you, just saying there's a lot more merit to why we don't like them.
The prices I saw on Locomoco link were higher than Yosh's. And I'd take a yosh slip-on's over TB any day.

Yeah, I don't like 2-1 either. Does yosh do that? I haven't seen it yet. So are you saying that's what you had, a yosh 2-1, and you traded for 2 TB's?

Not here to bash TwoBrothers. Some people like them just fine.

yeah it was a full 2-1 yosh can with jardine headers. came with the bike when i bought it, was a different set up. yeah i traded it for the Two bros from a guy on the forum. i would love to have a gpr system one day for sure. if i had to pay for the two bros i wouldn't of got it thats for sure. i would of just saved up and def spent my $ on some high mount gpr's. i thought it was a pretty good deal and im happy with the set up. i just had to buy the stock headers to go along with it.

When you said 2-1, the first name that came to mind was Jardine.
I'm glad you're happy with your TB setup, and you would need that header anyway for our traditional dual exhaust.

Well I have a budget around 1000 or less if I can. I would go with the yosh but it's a 2-1 and I like having the duel pipes. I really want to open the sound up on my sp1. I think I will look in tithe blackdragon system. There is a old saying and it goes you get what you pay for
