Bluhduh About to install my exhaust any tips?

Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to install my Leo Vince carbon slip on. Any tips or tricks? I'm kind of a noob. I bought gasket sealer to make sure I get a good seal so there aren't any leaks.

Also, should I leave the baffle in? I want it to be louder than stock.

You DON'T need any gasket sealer. It will probably run better with the baffle installed. GH

No sealer. I had to cut my alum spacer (that bolt goes through) in half for mine to line up. I could not get the bolt ro line up without putting more torque on the pipe than I wanted. I also left the baffle in. I have read that those who took the baffle out put it back in; annoyingly load.

If you use the sealer, it will be all but impossible to remove it again. Not needed on either the old, or new LV. If you dont like the fir, you can change the angle of the small pipe enclosed to suit your needs.

help!

Hey guys,

I ran into an issue. The aluminum spacer provided is way too big to go on the proper side, so I reversed it and it kind of fits.

The exhaust seems to touch the stock BMW luggage mounting racks, both at the front and at the rear...wtf????

Help plz!

I may be wrong but I think the hanger is supposed to mount on the other end of the spacer.

You are right but the spacer is too large and does not line up with the carbon bracket, it's just too big, needs to be maybe half the size...

Did you read the link, I posted above.?? It was addressing that exact point on page one. Hack the aluminum spacer in half. You are torquing the system way to much the way you have it now.

I cut it in half, thanks for the tip.

The exhaust is still touching the BMW luggage bracket at the bottom portion, the top one clears it no problem.

Can it remain touching it? Anything I can do so it doesn't touch?

I just re-positioned the mid pipe and my conclusion is that the hanger doesn't go low enough.

Why would leo vince make an exhaust that doesn't fit the bike?

Is it because I'm installing it on a 2013?
