Do headers really make a diffrence? Ivé been thinking of investing in some headers and Yoshimura exhuast...I looked at aftermarket headers and my exhuast pipes and doesn't look like much difference...Should I just get the Yoshimura slip on? Or do headers really make a diffrence? I ride a 900RR, 1996.

Minimal at best and even then only if it's properly tuned on a dyno. OEM especially today spend a great deal of R&D on exhaust design and performance overall. A properly tuned system may give you a little more on the top but usually sacrifice a little out of the middle. However keep in mind, even 5 hp is significant if racing. A slip on will give you the sound you want but very little gain if any in power.
