Leo Vince Evo II Factory R - low mount carbon exhaust

Just had my first ride after installing the new exhaust...

Eargasm!

So throaty and there seems to be a noticeable bump in the higher RPMs

Leo Vince reckon it is designed to run on the stock map but I suspect better results could be had by loading the arrow low mount map.

Any thoughts?

I just mounted that same exhaust last night. I've got all my lights disconnected for track duty so I didn't get to ride. Sadly we're going to have thunderstorms all day today so it may be another day or two before I can ride.

I'm curious to see what comments come up regarding the best tune to use. I'm thinking about going to the dyno shop for a custom tune but I wouldn't mind saving a couple hundred dollars if the Arrow lowboy tune already is a solid choice.

Why not just load the arrow low boy tune with tune ecu and see which one you prefer.A dyno is the only way to really tell which tune is best,louder exhausts can be deceptive.

My wife has ordered me one for Christmas...(when it arrives, she'll wrap it and put it under the tree.) I've been running stock pipes for two years...I don't really care about the exhaust note...just want the weight loss and the weight lower. The bike sounds fine to me with stock mufflers. I really don't care what it sounds like to others...just so long as the cops ignore me.

By the way, can that LeoVince sticker be taken off the can without too much trouble?...and how much more of a hassle is it to change the rear tire?

I have just about the same feelings. I honestly like the stock look fairly well - I'm actually not very excited about the look of the LV low. But, I wanted to lower the weight/CoG so this is where I ended up...

Not sure about removal of the LV badge - I would like to remove it but don't want to mar the finish of the can in the process, so I'll probably leave it alone.

I haven't tried removing the rear wheel but I suspect the can will have to come off to do so. Shouldn't be hard - remove two springs and one bolt and the can will slide off.

Actually with stock down pipe and CAT you may find (as I did) that the arrow twin high pipe is more appropriate. Else get it on a dyno with a custom map.

Peeled mine right off. Didn't mar the finish. Didn't even use a heat gun.

Custom tune.
