Exclamation best brand of slip-on exhaust?

I'm thinking about getting a slip-on exhaust for my '03 Katana...I want something that's going to make it louder, but without losing too much low/mid range hsp.

I've heard D&D is just loud and crap...other suggestions of brands that'll fit my bike?

While looking online tho, stuff like sato, arrow, ackropovic, etc don't offer one for the katana...

most should improve the mid-range. For a quick mod such as this... go with the one you think sounds the best.

in the cbr world, arata, akra, sato, arrow are the top power producing slip-ons. most slipons dont produce any power, or a tad if that. only for looks and sound. i have an arata, absolutely LOVE the sound and get compliments all the time for its sound. but its pricey. about 600.00 just for a s/o.

i had a D&D on my old F3. liked the sound, but was told to ride at the back of the pack on group rides. too dayum annoying, and the drone of the note will drive you crazy.

if you have a side exhaust, like on my old F3, really any slip-on pipe will fit. just have to tweak it to make it work. im sure i can make my arata i have on my bike now, work on my old F3. all you would need is a muffler hanger clamp, and a T clamp to clamp the pipe to the existing mid-pipe.

Im new to the sport bike scene but I have been riding moto and hillclimbs since my toes could touch the ground,and from my use and under standing,Yoshimura is fantastic,granted I used it on dirt bikes and quads,I have looked at consumer response to yoshi pipes on sport bikes and they seem to love it.Why would suzuki's yoshi teams be on top of moto GP??.jkjk.

ahhh, sorry to burst your bubble, but a yosh pipe is only good for looks and sound. NO hp gains, well maby 1. if your not into any gains, then get a yosh pipe, me on the other hand, ill spend the extra money to get gains/looks/and sound.

It a little late for a comment, but as for slip-ons, the power you will gain will mean absolutely nothing for the majority of applications and situations. I like the sound of stock pipes and the look and sound of yoshi's. If you are looking for power get a full kit, the best pipe depends on your bike, the affordable kits are hit and miss so read up on them.

But really the yoshi's have the best little bit of bass at the bottom, then at high rpm they roar.

I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P
