Default Yoshimura in Dubai/Paris

gents,
I'm keen to buy a Yosh RS-5 carbon fibre job (end can only) for my 07 Blade 1000 RR.

A friend is flying out and willing to carry this back for me. I need either or both of the following along with a price comparison (if possible):

1) address of a dealer in Paris who stocks these
2) a willing soul to buy the Yosh in Dubai and deliver it to my friend in the airport- he's only transitting (12th Oct)

Instance #1 my buddy buys the system and all's well.

#2 kicks in especially if it's far cheaper in Dubai- then the services of a Good Samaritan are required since he'll be locked in the airport for 2 hours.
For #2 it's COD that's the best I can do.

Info today?

Two Brothers has dealers in France and Dubai. I would suggest that pipe over the Yoshi. You should also look at Devil which is a french brand.

Sirs: DEVIL is French?? If 'sold' with such vehemence, must be something to it. Thanks.

Loud but not nasty. My old Yosh carbon was what the Doc ordered but I don't mind more of rasp notes over the Baritone-mellow. I guess the effect I seek has to be 'metallic'.

In that case, you should also look at Scorpion and Leo Vince. The RS-5 sounds superb at high revs.

straight6: Then RS-5 it is!! Always had a soft corner for Pops.
BTW anyone heard a Staintune? I got an octane buddy in Oz and could press him into service.

gt_mustang: Thanks, Sir. Seems the Dubai window has shut for me, but thanks anyway.

OTR: I found this site that said Devil was insolvent and its products no longer sold or guaranteed in the US. Also claimed some orders that had been booked weren't delivered.

I hope you're planning to get a carbon fibre pipe.

Yes, mainly swinging that way, except for the fact that tis an undertail and considering I ride in all conditions, the pipe will get hit with all kinds of detritus from water to slush and possibly worse. leaves me wondering if it will get scratched with the cleaning.

Are carbon fibre more mellow than the metals? Lighter, I'm pretty sure.

Carbon fibre also keeps the heat from getting out. They all sound the same. Don't worry about the scratches.

If your friend is in Paris, ask him to find out about GPR Carbon Fibre Slip-ons. The look like shorties, have an awesome sound & look

This is my dream in pixels.
Thanks. Never heard of GPR...will a shorty work undertail or blow smoke up my tartan skirt?

You mean a 10" shorty? Do not bother going the shorty way, will hamper the power in the lower rpm's.
The RS5 is a quiet can, someone I know has one on his 06 blade, but then he apparently likes it quiet.
And, if the new fancy looking Devil pipes are anything how the old school stuff sounded, it would be worth each penny you'd spend. They are very deep in the lower rpm's and the 600 rr in my bulding screams its way through the higher rpms. Mesmerising stuff, literally!
