Yoshimura exhaust weight differences vs. stock

Does anyone know how much the yoshimura RS3 slip-ons weigh? I am curious how much they differ. Also, off hand does anyone know how much the stock exhaust weighs? I'm looking to shave a little weight off the bike...

Thanks all!

I really don't know the exact weights myself. But I for one can tell you that the stock can compared to my Yoshimura RS3 S/S is like comparing a VW's weight to a stationwagons weight.

Yeah, my CF can is probably about 1/2 to 2/3rds the weight of the OE boat anchor

I put on my new Yosh Titanium exhaust and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! The sound is MUCH better and it is so much lighter than the stock. I have no complaints at all.

I have a bolt on yosh CF exhaust, Im curious what the entire stock exhaust weight is, including headers/stock can vs. a full muzzy CF system. Why a muzzy you ask? i had one on my last zx6, and they Just sound SWEEEEeeeet. This Yosh is too loud for me. Anyway, im wondering the overall performance and wieght improvement i would get from this. On my ZX6E the weight diffrence was phenominal.. but that particular bike had cast iron headers.
