But since I have a couple of different Satos, a Yosh and a Hindle Ti high mount set up, I would rather use that kind of money for some serious weight savings like a set of BST's or forged magnesium wheels.

But since I have a set of forged aluminum wheels which will get me by and are lighter than stock, my extra money is going into Ohlins internals for the forks.

But if those Ladybirds are a little too steep how about a set of their slipons? Same craftmanship and quality for less than half the price...still a great deal in my opinion.

Just curious - whats the power difference, weight difference between these Ladybirds and the SATOS? I paid a grand for the Sato's, do the Lady's warrant an extra 2K?

Worth every penny? Thats what i paid for my whole bike. No doubt great stuff but please, thats crazy. If i had money to burn then why not but no way would i spend 3grand on a exhaust system that is not even going to up hp numbers very much. Rather go with light weight wheels or ohlins front and back! I onow simon is pretty much worshipped here but please guys. Has anyone on this forum even bought the system??? Thought so...

Didn't mean to rile everyone up. Just thought they were pricey. The way I look at it is I can't make it or do the work and someone else can then they can name their own price..

2006 RC51 - 2nd owner purchased 4/2015 with 1400 miles

I'm not riled up, just making a point..... Some people spend 50g's on a sport car, some people spend the same on bikes....not unheard of....don't have the cash or not worth it to you then that is fine too. IMO, these pipes are worth the price. WhitWwings on 'Zilla had some of the Ladybird HRC's for sale...$2800 if thats much better LOL

I think they are worth it...if money is not an issue why would you not? Good quality products are just that good quality products and they are getting harder and harder to find for our bikes.
