Two words: Leo Vince

New XChallenge arrived yesterday, traded the 1200GS...

I also fitted the Leo Vince X3 slip-on... My initial thoughts:

For me the sound level is just about perfect with the road legal Euro insert (the insert that was already fitted). It completely transforms the bike with regards to throttle response - immediate action on the back wheel. If you are looking for something as quiet as the stock can, this is not it, though...

I think MaxCool summed it up quite nicely: "LeoVince with legal insert: fruity clear bark, but still legallish" - with the focus on the "ish"...

I agree about fitting an additional heat shield to the header just before the end can.

So far I am a happy camper!
