I don't see pros and cons in most of the exhaust silencers and systems available. It is nice that there are so many systems available for the bikes that were not available a year or two ago. It really comes down to what YOU want in looks and sound.
Almost any aftermarket silencer is going to flow more than the engine needs, and definately more the the stock header with the pre-cat in place. So without tuning, they are going to make nearly the same power.
Get a system that has the look and sound you want. If you plan to later remove the precat, be aware that the sound will be deeper and louder afterwards.
My only addition is more of a "clarification" to the comment, which would be that in terms of slip-ons, very correct.
If you are looking at a full system, then design does play in and you need to get into dyno graphs and such to make sure you are getting what you pay for.
So choose slip-ons as you like them, systems as you like them and in conjunction with their dyno graphs.
