Yay, it's here, it's here... my LeoVince is HERE!!!!

Waiting by my door when I got home from work. It is the EVOII for those who were wondering. I ordered it from indysuperbikes.com for $284 shipped. That's $60 less than the next guy.





I immediately ran to the hardware store and picked up a sawsall. Installation took only about an hour and I love the thing already. The matte finish really gets me off too. No pics of the can on the bike yet, waiting for the weather to clear up so I can get some good pics in the sun. I'll get some ASAP, I promise.

The thing is quieter than expected but it has a very welcome rumble. It looks so much better than the stock can too.

The one question I have is how do you get the quiet insert out? I removed the screw but that steel insert won't budge.




I don't know why I had the urge, but is this really necessary?

No, it's not necessary, please do that behind closed doors in private.

Leo Vince makes some nice cans, I am sure it will bring much joy to you (as we can see) and your SV.

Re: Yay, it's here, it's here... my LeoVince is HERE!!!!

I specified in the comments section when I ordered that I have an '07 and that '03 has a different subframe. LeoVince has the same part numbers on their site for the '03-'08 lineup. Anyway, the mid-pipe I got had "('03)" on the packaging and no other years. It fits with no issues. Also, the LV instructions say to cut the stock headers 50mm from the weld for '07, that's about 2 inches. Look on the Yoshimura website and they have an actual picture of the weld: http://www.yoshimura-rd.com/images/p...df/1112265.pdf

There are two baffles, one insert and one plate. The plate goes between the midpipe and the slip-on. My insert is stuck and I'll have to pound it out from the inside. You'll see what I mean if you get the LV

Like I said earlier too, it is pretty quiet without the plate (the baffle to make the can E-marked). I thought for sure it'd be louder. I can hear the can over the intake up to 45 mph and above that, wind noise. Just as a gauge of how quite the can with just the quiet insert, I can hear the chain when I'm under 10mph. It's nice to know that I'm not being obnoxious.

Finally, I couldn't get the mounting strap to fit on the inside of the peg-mount (like the stock hanger) so I mounted to the outside. I'll post pics later.

Hope this helps.

good stuff, I'm waiting patiently (who am I kidding? I can't freaking wait...). Glad to hear it's relatively quiet, and the brushed aluminum was a big thing for me, too.

oh, and I COL'd (chuckled out loud) at your "can love" pic.

Just one more comment to get a metric on the volume, without the plate but the quiet insert (baffle in the end cap) in. Above 7K RPM it doesn't seem to sound louder than stock, it rumbles better and lower in pitch but doesn't seem louder. In fact, you hear the intake over the exhaust at any higer RPMs. I'm going to pull that insert out and see what it sounds like.

Oh, the brushed Al finish matched the other matte finishes on the bike pretty well.

I saw other people love their cans, like ASCSurveyor and GMSlave, so I wondered what the big hype was. It... was... awesome.

Pics of the can on the bike will be up soon, either today or tomorrow. The SV needs a good wash and a wax first, from all this riding in the rain.
