The restrictor plate is baffling to me. :-) There is no mention of it in the supplied instructions.
Also if it were to be used as a restrictor the tiny holes wouldn't seem to allow enough exhaust flow.
I think it's just a chunk if scrap metal not intended to be used

I would buy that, but if you look close it is stamped with a number (50) & it fits perfectly into the input end of the can. As you said there is no mention of it in the directions & it is not pictured in the exploded diagram. In any case I am happy with my purchase, both the Tiger & the exhaust....

Just sent an email to LeoVince asking for an explanation.
Assume it fits between the slip on and provided exhaust extension.
Noted this in my email and mentioned I chose not to use it.
Odd the instructions make no mention of it.
See what they say.

Thanks for the photos!

The round piece with the 5 holes I believe is a restrictor plate, but there was nothing in the instructions for it. The instruction booklet is in the bag with the additional sticker. It has the instructions you stated plus an exploded diagram that shows how the pieces go together. The last 2 pics show the exhaust installed and a look at the baffle/db killer. Hope this helps....I love the sound, nice low growl...
It would seem that a few pieces were not included in my box. That might explain the problem. I'll wait and speak with the dealer on Tuesday to see if they can help tone it down a bit. Thanks for taking time to upload the photos.

ps: We are both in Washington. I see you are in Everett. I'm in Tacoma. Still great riding here.

If you bought from pipe city there should not be a problem. I have bought from them before & they have excellent customer service. Yes though the weather is about to take a turn from my understanding. Rode down to Seattle on an errand, ended up being stuck in traffic for nearly 2 hours. Seems they shut the downtown down due Pres. Obama is visiting. Called the place I was headed & my friend said not to bother as they were closing all the shops & telling everyone to leave. Nice way to stimulate an economy, shutting businesses down on a Sunday afternoon....

Cool Leo Vince too loud

Got an email from Leo Vince this AM. The disc with holes is to be put between the header and front of the exhaust. It will reduce sound "at the cost of some power". I'll try adding it this weekend and report back it it helps noise or hurts power.

They also said they don't have any other instructions etc. How hard can it be to put together a diagram of some sort and include with the can?

Stay tuned
Paul

Comments from LeoVince

"This disc is an extra sound reducer. You are correct in where it fits. It's mainly used in the European market. It reduces the sound down to about stock, but therefore will also reduce power and performance. It is not necessary and many customers choose not to use it"

Leo Vince "mystery disc"

So as others have noted, the disc with holes is a restricter to be inserted between the mid pip and the intake of the exhaust. I put mine in last night and it does reduce the noise significantly. Although it may make a difference on a dyno run, it didn't seem to be that noticeable during my 15 minute test ride last night. Will report back after a more "spirited " run next weekend.

In addition to finding the droning annoying for long rides, part of my motivation is to keep from being overly attractive to law enforcement. Seems to me that loud bikes get more attention from the LEOs. Since I do like to exceed posted limits, why wave a red flag??

With the disk installed are you running with the DBkiller in or out.
With the DBkiller in and disk installed the sound should be close to stock.
Then I have to say why spend $250.00 for the same sound?
If that's the way your going then the standard tune might be preferable.

One thing I will say about the LV stuff is that there are really no diagrams or instructions, which led to the original confusion about the restrictor disc. IF the decibel killer is the tube at the end of the exhaust, yes it is in. My main intention in getting the carbon fiber exhaust was to be able to run throw over bags without melting them. So a $300 exhaust saves me $750-$1200 over hard panniers and lots of weight.

Right now the sound is deeper than stock but not much louder, except when cranking the throttle open it is more "authoritative" sounding. I may experiment in removing the decibel killer to see how that sounds, but I actually like the bike relatively quiet for my own ears when touring.

Although the disc may affect power slightly, I dont really notice much change from stock.
