Exactly...I tried using the Touratech one but it doesn't really do much.

I had a LV full Ti system on my old Husqvarna SM610 and the fit and finish was incredible. It sounded great and looked beatiful on the bike.

Keep up the good work.

What he needs and I as well is a new replacement connecting tube that has extra tabs for the small heatshield you see in the picture here. (and the extra heatshield also of course)



Thanks in advance,

Max

Please excuse my ignorance, but I just want to be clear on what is needed-
He needs the small carbon exhaust shield pictured-right? (you're ok in that department)
You both need a connecting tube with tabs for mounting-correct?

I can't speak for someone else of course, but I need

1. a new connecting tube that has the extra tabs for the smaller heatshield.
2. that smaller, rectangular heatshield itself of course. I already have that bigger heatshield.

That would make me a very happy customer (and I'm even willing to pay a small compensation to Leo Vince for the excellent service).

Although the Leo Vinces on my 990 Adventure don't sit level, l to r, they are very snug, sound good, save lots of weight and seem to help the power in the mid-range. Thanks for a great product.

Although I had nothing to do with any product development, I thank you for your kind words.

Hey Randy-
Quick question for you...when installing the slip on cans onto the midpipe, is it necessary to coat the midpipe with antiseize in order to keep the cans from welding to the pipe? I didn't use any when I assmebled my system, but it occurred to me yesterday that maybe I should have...

Thanks!
Jeff

I got to put the baffles back in though. Too loud without for me.

Another hot spot here.

Randy,

Hopefully you can help me with the new X3 system on my '08 TE610. I also have a hot spot that is melting away my gear. It's okay when I'm sitting down, but I can't stand up and stay off of it. It's the section pictured below between the existing carbon guard and the can (the upsweep). Does LV have a universal guard that will fit this area? I'd really like to match the existing carbon one.

Also, shouldn't my system have come with a couple dB inserts? It looks from the website that they do, but my dealer said they gave me everything that came with it.

Thanks for doing this. The system looks and performs great.

I personally have never have used antiseize for any exhuast, and have never had a problem. The mid pipe and the inlet of the muffler are both stainless steel, so you should be fine. However, I don't see how it could have any negative effects if choose to disassemble and lightly coat the contact parts.

Thank you for emailing me directly, as I don't always have a chance to check this forum. If any one else is experiencing this, we do have a carbon fiber heat shield that should accomplish wa

Thanks for emailing me directly, as I will be able to respond quicker. For anyone experiencng a similiar situation, we do have a carbon fiber heat shield that should provide the needed coverage. In regards to the inserts; yes all X-3 mufflers and exhuasts come with 2 inserts and a spark arrestor.

spare exhaust clamp?

I installed Leo slip on can on my KTM640 adv. Kit comes with one oval kevlar looking clamp. This bike really needs two oval clamps to keep exhaust can secure. Stock can had 3 mounting points. So, now with only one clamp midpipe is free to move. With 2 oval clamps things should be perfect. Do you sell them and what p/n is?
Thx
