I have a USA made Yoshimura RS3 full system and was just told that the Japaneses made exhausts use different technology, doesn't sound right to me but has anyone heard that before?

I know from my Zuk 1K days the Yosh Japan stuff was in a totally different class as the Yosh USA stuff, Think of it like Akra Evolution compared to Muzzy.

A famous mechanic from here in Georgia by the name of Vic Fasola, and use to work for Muzzy and tuned Scott Russels bikes when he was club racing before Scott became famous once told me that Muzzy's sh!t is actually made in Japan. They dont build it in Bend Oregon he said laughing. There are several companies in Japan that do spec work for companines as contractors.

Vance and Hines street systems use to all be built by one of these Japanese contractors. You get what you pay for, maybe. Engine Dynamics is the same for everybody.

Very nice link Pablo. I like the firespec which looks great and I bet performs just as well. They also had some cool bikes that I have never heard of.

I was using the comparison as more of a rule of thumb on quality, not nessisarily where they are made,I think Akra is made in Slovenia anyway, who ever heard of anything else good come from Slovinia, lol.

Both are good, but the Yosh Japan is a step up on the USA stuff.
