Banzai exhaust question

I see that some systems mount their cans tipped in toward the middle but I have seen others, like the one pictured were the cans come out straight. I believe that HRC systems were mounted this way also the Ladybird HRC Rep system is as well. Is this how some systems are made or is just and adjustment?

DERP need more posts!!!

Of course I can't find a good picture of the tipped in type. Though it seems like most systems are this way....

Noobness confirmed. Banzai is a Sato term sorry I didn't know that. So I'm talking about High mount systems then.

hahaha ok didn't know that was a Sato only term. Rc51.org mods section led me to believe that was the general term for that system. I stand corrected. I'll take your none answer to mean that its just how some systems are made.

The sato banzais point slightly inwards. I really like that look

Seems that most other systems the pipes sit parallel to each other

My LB system must be the only banzai system out there then....

Sato was one of the first to "dub" their system banzai, but they hold no patented trademark.

In fact if you "google that shit", the Black Dragon exhaust comes up first

Ethos made/designed the very first " Banzai Mount " systems, they predate Sato by 2 years. I have a set.

A good friend of mine used his bike for the prototype testing of the ultra high mount Sato Racing slip-ons for the RC51.

His screename for the ROGUE forum back then was Banzai and Mr. Sato deemed it appropriate to name the exhaust after him.
