Don't know if you've seen this thread yet. My pipes going on my bike tonight. So far all I can say is I'm very impressed by the quality of the manufacturing of the pipe. All I did was take it out of the box the other night. Hopefully I'll get the opportunity to install it tonight. I'll give my impression after. Hope this helps.Here's the link to their Euro web site which has the pipe listed and a sound bite too. I think I'm going to get mine this weekend!
I agreee....Accept I found the biggest opening with the shortest length baffle and ran that. And I love that. Those other 3 haven't tried them yet.Here's my impression of the pipe:
The "chunk" felt with the stock pipe as you go from off throttle to on is significantly smoother. Bottom end doesn't seem any better or worse. Leo Vince's published dyno results shows a slight decrease at about 5,000 RPM. It's barely noticable if at all. If I hadn't seen the dyno charts before trying my pipe I probably would have not perceived it at all. I feel the difference in the mid range for sure. It feels like it pulls harder and smoother here. On the top it seems like it gets a little closer to the rev limiter before starting to drop off.
So far I've only tried it with the setup they prepackaged which includes the exhaust tip that meets the FIM decible level which if I remember right is 92 db. I figured I would go right to the most aggressive, highest flow tip from the start and work backwards toward the most conservative but I just ran it the way it shipped and I'm extremely happy with it. One day soon, when I get some time I'll test the other setups. I can say this, I thought that 92 db would not be very loud but after hearing it I'm not sure I want to go any louder. If the performance was noticably different I'd consider it, though. As far as the exhaust note goes I could not be happier. The stock pipe sounds to me like a crackling girgle and the Leo's got a nice deep, throaty burble. That's the best way I can put it into words.
As far as the quality goes I've never seen more attention to detail and was blown away by all of the optional accessories that were included in the package. They included a spring pulling tool, four exhaust tips, a spark arrestor, and a sticker. Instead of having a cheap sticker on the exhaust pipe they have a metal lable tacked on for durability. I know you're thinking I probably work for them in their marketing department by this point but I do not. I simply appreciate a well manufactured item and the company's willingness to go above and beyond what's expected in this day and age. I've owned FMF and Pro Circuit pipes in the past on my dirt bikes. They were good products for the money but Leo Vince is over the top.:thumbup:
Sorry. I'm Ryan, go by Kocoma or KOnrad. haha. Nicknames. And Cody is a Saleman at the Cali Location at Leo Vince. As well as GrahamKocoma...what? I'm not following your meaning here. Who is they, who is Ryan, and who is Cody. I'm about 1 hour away from installing my pipe...yahoo!!!:clap:
I planned to do the same but once I got the pipe mounted I couldn't wait to take it for a spin and that was at 10:00 last night. Haven't had the opportunity to change it but I'm not sure I want to be any louder. I guess I'll just have to try it and see.I agreee....Accept I found the biggest opening with the shortest length baffle and ran that. And I love that. Those other 3 haven't tried them yet.
Stock sprockets. I really feel the gearing is perfect. And for commuting I don't want to rev to high. I still need to remove the cables I left tucked up under the bike. I've been lazy. But I sure love making noise with this thing. :bike:I planned to do the same but once I got the pipe mounted I couldn't wait to take it for a spin and that was at 10:00 last night.

How loud is it? Have you done any sprocket changes? I'm thinking of dropping a tooth on the front.
