Default Upgrades on the way and a few questions (Exhaust)!

Hey all - hope everyone is enjoying the riding season!

So I finally broke down and stocked up my ebay cart with some items to buy for my 2004 Honda CBR F4i, just need to click the purchase button! Looking for a few opinions...

Right now, my bike has a Pit-Eck slip-on exhaust. I've searched these forums and they sound pretty uncommon and cheap. I have it right now and haven't noticed any real problems... but this is my first bike. First off, this thing is LOUD as hell. To be honest, almost a little too loud. The mounting kit from it is starting to warp / bend so the exhaust doesn't sit properly. Overall, the quality of it does feel a look a little cheap. But like I said, first bike don't know what to compare / expect.
Am I going to benefit from a Yoshimura exhaust over the Pit-Eck? What could I expect besides noise? Assume I'd have a hard time re-selling the exhaust?

I also bought some red seperated rim tape which should look awesome... bought new tires at the beginning of the year.

Gonna change out the front windscreen to a dark tinted one.

Last thing I'm in debate over is the mirrors. I don't like the way the ones look currently and the original owner dropped it (parked) and has some damage to them. Anyone got mirrors with blinkers hooked up on an 04?

FINALLY, I'm going to look at buying some 'mesh siding', 'grills', 'gutter guard' to fill over the fairings. Seen this on a few members bikes... looks pretty solid in my opinion.

If anyone has some advise for these products or pictures of your upgrades similar to what I'm describing, POST AWAY!

post a picture of your exhaust I may want it.

As for the exhaust you want to get. A Lot of people have it. Personally I like the sound of the two bro exhaust. I think it sounds a bit deeper.

Deff. Yosh>pit eck. Look up f4i exhaust on you tube for the yosh and two bros M5

Cool, I'll try and get a few good pics tomorrow and send them over in a PM. The Pit-Eck sounds more like the Two Brothers but even deeper. You can hear it coming in from a distance when in 1st or 2nd gear and reving past 5 or 6k
