Pipes not parallel (sit at different positions) hangers have 1/2" gap that allows the cans to flop around inside them. Other than that I love em.

I mitigated both issues by using some 1/2" neoprene on top of one side to force it down and on the bottom of the other side to force it up. This aligns them a little better and prevents the flopping of the cans.

When I sent an email enquiring about a solution to this I was sent an image saying it was KTM's fault. No comment regarding the poorly fitting hanger was provided.

I may have a installation issue but I took it all off and reinstalled it trying to get it aligned better to no avail. Now I just ride lopsided and I know this is costing me at least 10hp.

1) Does the bike need a re-map or will the ECU adjust itself?
2) Assuming similar driving habits, will miles-per-gallon be similar to stock cans? I ask because several forum members have said that the Akrapovic map decimated their fuel range.

Many thanks - Wolfhound
1) No remapping is needed with any application for Leo Vince mufflers and exhuast. One of the benfits of all our products is increased performance without rejetting (although you can improve performance with re-jetting)
2) Miles per galon should be pretty close to stock. I've no reports that say otherwise. If a rider is like me, it's hard not to gas it harder with the improved exhuast tone and torque-so mileage has decreased on my DL-650.

Hmmm.... well it's never our fault (just joking!)
Have a KTM dealer look at it or please forward the images to randy@leovinceusa.com . We have a 12 month warranty on workmanship and materials.
Why do you feel that you are loosing 10hp? Is there an issue with an exhuast leak?

It was a joke about the hp.

I will forward a link to my rube goldberg adjustment.

Wow Randy...you're a brave man...

by setting up a thread like this!! Welcome and thanks for providing an opportunity for questions. Like others here...I'm interested in potential applications that don't appear to be currently available. In my case that would be a Honda XR650L. I see a lot of similar applications but nothing for the XRL. Are there any plans to expand the Enduro line that direction?

Thanks and keep up the good work!!

Rocky

Rocky-
Thank you for your kind words, but no XR650L....(yes, we would sell many worldwide....what are those silly engineers DOING thinking that sweeping the Daytona 200 was more important...)

If you don't see a listing for a bike that's been available for as long as the DR650 or XR650L, we probably won't be offering it in the future. I do want to point out that we do make a brand called "Sito" (Sito is our parent company) that has ALOT of old bike applications, but is basically an original equipment replacement.

Te-610

The Slip On for the TE-610 is a bit loud. I have tried all the inserts and find the short insert with the spark arrestor is the most quiet. Is there any other alternative to quieten the pipe even more? TIA

Yes,
(from the website-)
Enduro Sport systems are designed for off-road racing, enduro and those who want the ultimate trail legal system. These slip-ons and full systems make excellent power while producing only 94db or less. Our available titanium full systems deliver the ultimate in lightweight performance and extreme durability. And our aluminum slip-ons provide maximum performance with outstanding sound control.
A USFS- approved spark arrestor is included and all systems are designed to work with stock fuel settings.

Good question-
Manny is in charge of R&D here in America, so he would know. To the best of my knowledge we still don't have the stamp on the muffler yet, but I will check on this.

There may be a 94 dB insert available for your muffler. Does your muffler have a carbon fiber end cap?

No, here is the model:

X3 MOTOCROSS/SM ALUMINUM
Husqvarna SM 610
CC: 610
Year: 2006
Type: Slip-On
Part#: 3845
Includes 98dB/96dB Inserts & S/A

It has a stainless cap. It comes with two additional inserts. The only one that fits along with the screen is the short insert. Another member mentioned he cut one of the extra inserts to fit with the screen. Could you tell me which insert would be the most quiet of the three? I would also like to know what the decible level of each insert is as they are not marked. Is it possible for a Fabricator to make another insert to get the decibal level even lower? TIA
