OK, so I'm curious after hearing about slipon exhaust systems. I've read a bit on them, mostly around here, but I never really bothered asking.

Anyway, my questions are these: first, what will a slipon do? Is it entirely/almost entirely an aesthetic improvement (IE, sound/look of the pipe), or would a slipon also result in a non-negligable gain in horsepower (>~5, I would think?), making the use of such not suitable for a newbie?

Also, does using a slipon require modifications to the bike (in my case, the carbs I would think is what would need to be modified).

Finally, are slipons universal? I've heard statements to either side, but after all is said and done, I've never seen an EX500 with a Yoshimura exhaust.
