It was a bit too loud for my liking...

I bought one of their inserts that reduces the decibels a few and it's just about perfect.

Hi :)

I just bought a second hand Leovince for the 700GS.

I've a question for the removal of the stock exhaust.

I must remove the two springs and the exhaust "holding" screw and that's it, I can pull the exhaust out?

For the new one, any seal or something like that?

Ahhhhh.... that makes two of us.... I meant to ask if you had encountered any problems with the install, but perhaps I asked something completely different....

I finally got around to putting some racks on my GS (2010) three years after buying it... yes, I know...!

I bought the Polish Holan symmetrical rack (balanced), a top rack from MOD in Canada and a new Leo Vince Carbon Evo One pipe from Italy.

Had to change the pipe because the stock doesn't work with the balanced racks. I also wanted a smaller/lighter pipe that wouldn't cause heat problems with soft bags.

I am not a mechanic at all, but fitting the pipe was pretty easy. I knew from previous posts that I had to pull the pipe in as far as possible to clear the Holan racks, so I left out the 1" aluminium spacer, at the point where the silencer attaches to the bike, and used three washers instead. I also had to use a shorter bolt.

That, combined with rotating the link pipe from the bike to the silencer slightly upwards, meant I could pull the whole new exhaust about an inch or so further in towards the bike.

Putting the Holan racks on was a little trickier. They come with no instructions, but I found some tips online. You need to add a nut (supplied) between the footpeg and the locking nut which secures the rack in place. This allows you to raise and lower the foot pegs still. Then it's just a matter of aligning things properly and tightening around the frame bit by bit until it's all square and tight.

For the MOD rack, you need to tell Dave previously which racks you have on the bike, so he can supply you with the correct spacers to raise the top rack above the hand grips of the pannier bars. Once you have all the bits, fitting the rack is easy.

I'm really happy with the way it's all come together. The new LV pipe sounds great (baffle in) and doesn't get anywhere near as hot as the stock.

The Holan's are solid and not too bulky without luggage on. They should also help protect the rear of the bike if I drop it (already have Adventure Spec bars at the front which have saved me numerous times).

The MOD top rack has so many options for attaching and positioning, that it should be great.

Now I just need to decide which luggage to get. I'm thinking to go for a hard top box (Maybe Givi Trekker or an aluminium box) and soft bags (Kriega or Wolfman) for the sides. The pelican cases are very solid, I know that from working with film crews, but they look too much like cases to me. Someone at Pelican should make some specially designed bike boxes.

My camera has bust otherwise I would have added some pics. It's obviously easier to see this stuff on the bike, than imagine it.

Over and out.

There is no way on earth that he got that increase with just a pipe, and headers. Manipulating numbers. Not even if he reflashed the bmsk, full system. Those numbers are worked.
