Nice, I am thinking of this exhaust as well.  Any chance of getting a close up or a measurement from the bottom of the passenger foot peg, to the pipe/can?  I have passenger lowering pegs and want to make sure it will work.  I think it will, just want to confirm.

Thanks.

Leo Vince Carbon Fiber.  The same dB as the stock pipe with the quiet insert.  Although the tone is lower.  Plus you drop 13.5 pounds.

I'll add a definite +1 for the Leo Vince with the insert (it comes standard with the insert). Really nice sound but not loud at all. I did run it for awhile without the insert and it still wasn't too bad, but I really like it with the insert installed.

That is the titanium can.  Only the cap is carbon fiber.  I gotmine from motorcycle superstore.  Use the dropdown boxes to pick the carbon fiber model (color).  I picked it up on sale but it looks like the normal price is 543.99 there.

i just heard from my buddy that all ways gets me under any price for parts -------------------------------,Looks like all our distributors are out of Leo Vince exhausts, this has been the case for some time now. I don't know if Leo Vince has pulled out of US market and what you see is just leftovers or what but I am not able to get that exhaust for you sorry, I do have access to Yoshimura, Akrapovic, Jardine etc.  so if you want a LEO better get it now

You'll love it.  Just for fun take out the quiet insert one afternoon and do a nice twisty mountain road using engine breaking.  It has a nice burble to it.


Then I put the quite insert back in since I oftentimes leave my place REALLY early in the morning to ride with people on the other side of the state.  My neighbors are none the wiser with the insert in.

Congrats, Tony. Great price! I do prefer the look of my carbon better though.  ;D And it's SOO much smaller than stock (see my pic above in this thread).
I agree with cablebandit, try it without the insert. It sounds good without being overly loud, but you'll find you really like it with the insert installed. That's where I ended up after riding mine in the Arkansas twisties both ways.

I, too, have been considering the Leo Vince, but I have the MCL passenger peg extensions.  Has anyone installed a Leo Vince with those extenders, and if so, have you or your pillion noticed any clearance problems?

One thing I've noticed in pictures of installed Leo Vince cans is that, unlike the stocker and others, it doesn't appear to be parallel with the bottom of the saddlebag.  Is that an illusion, or would careful adjustment correct it?

It is not exactly parallel, but it's much more noticable in the pics than it appears in person. I suspect that with a little tweaking you could get it parallel. Anyway, I love mine.
