Exhaust options?

Ok so here goes. I hope I'm posting this in the right thread?
So I just got my dream machine, 2002 RC51 with 9000 miles on the clock.
It currently has a set of Two Brothers Racing slip on's on it and the fitment is total crap. Sloppy between the mid pipe and header and between the mid pipe and muffler. They look like they are gonna fall off at idle.

So far Im not finding much left on the market anymore?
From what I have found in my internet searches is that Sato was the way to go!! But sadly it doesn't look like they make anything anymore for the 51.

Yoshimura RS-3 slip on's are still available in some places and was my choice for a slip on back in 2000 on my CBR600 and was impressed with the fitment quality.

Ladybird has my interest also? Its my understanding that these are copies of HRC systems? But Im really not interested in dropping thousands of dollars on a full system. Im not a weekend racer and don't need to pull every available HP outa my mostly stock bike. Do they make a quality slip on that will keep me in the mid 120HP range?

Ok so with all that said

My bike has a power commander III
I need to keep my passenger foot pegs
Im not one to brag about HP and tell tall stories of my bike making 150+ HP because I have XYZ brand of pipe.
Im guessing my current setup is in the 125HP range? (is 130 out of the question with slip on's?)
I don't want to loose power but if I gain a little Im totally cool with that too.
I prefer the looks of an oval can and carbon construction.
I just enjoy riding and want it to sound good doing it without going backwards in performance, TBR claimed some impressive #s with these slip on's but its two bad they fit so horrible.

Im not afraid to spent money on a quality piece within reason either.

So whats my options fellas?

And I know, to ask about exhaust is a loaded question, Im prepared to get 100's of opinions, but Id love to hear about real world results in quality and power.

you can also get the exhaust extrapalator showed with a variety of ladybird cans...motogp long, motogp short, round cans, oval cans... etc...with midpipes....motogp's tend to be loud from everyone I have heard from.....Love that blued Ti look!

The longer the cannister, the deeper the exhaust tone.
I'd stay away from any carbon cans, the 100mm slugs of the v-twin cause harsh pulses that will take a toll on the carbon fiber shells. And they need constant repacking - like once a year or so, or they begin to burn out. Especially at the inlet on the right cannister. Stay with Ti.

Sato's are my favorite, full length, not moto.
You definitely don't need a full system, slip-ons are the ticket.
Make sure your slip on system is for SP2. SP1 midpipes won't work.

With the current exchange rate, the LadyBirds are probably the best deal out there, and their reputation is GOLD! Everyone comments on the outstanding quality and super fast shipping.
The Mori's that RCDevil has are also top-shelf. You should seriously consider those too. RCDevil is a friend of mine, and a great seller.

There lots of lb options, more than mentioned. Including the HRC (mentioned), high mount, low mount, various can options, etc. Ebay shows many of the latest lb options.

A few pic examples.
