+1 on the Holan's. (edit: Beowulf, Holan crash bars, yes I am an idiot, see sig). Nice deep growl with or without the baffle. W/O baffle sounds better though. Was initially looking at Leo Vince, but came across the Holan's. Price is cheaper than website due to VAT being removed for foreign orders. Overall weight saving over original was just under 2.6kg for my set up. Pictured is oval ti stubby.

Mind if I ask how you went about importing to Aus from the UK? Did you just go straight through the website? How much for the pipe, and the postage? I'm wanting to do the same, but with the black Carbon look.

Ordered directly from website. Pipe was 195 pounds less VAT(gst) and postage was 40 pounds. Need physical address as a courier is used, so no PO boxes.

I also ordered the rad guard for 45 pounds less VAT.

Full price was charged then the VAT was credited back (don't know why they did it this way)

Mine delivered was $480Aus all up for pipe and rad guard. Exchange rate is better now though.

See any reason that wouldnt work with Jesse panniers? It a sweet looking pipe and more growl would be great.

Is the "Beowulf" on the side a sticker or is it permanent?

I stacked recently and insurance gave me $800+ for the stock can. I'm planning on replacing it with an aftermarket muffler, but don't want something that looks like it belongs on a lowered RR with LED strips, nor do I want something that's much louder than stock (preferably no louder). Right now I'm leaning toward the Leo Vince...with the insert installed, of course.

Thoughts?

I just ordered the Leo Vince pipe. According to the people at Leo Vince, with the dB killer in it's still a bit louder than stock. With the dB killer out it's considerably louder than stock. This is true, however, with most aftermarket exhaust pipes. They're all going to be a bit louder than stock even with the dB killer in. That said, a lot of people claim that Akrapovic is really close to stock volume with the insert in.

I'd say the Scorpion (?) that came with my Metal Mule system is also lower volume than stock. Less of a rumble and more of the individual cylinder firing sound. More like a single when running I guess is how I'd say it. I didn't notice a change in fuel consimption.
