Randy, this is perfect timing. I am trying to find a replacement carbon fiber strap which holds the silencer to the subframe for an X3 pipe. Mine melted when I lost a subframe bolt, lowering the pipe too much. I am also missing the carbon fiber heat shields that go on the main body of the pipe. Where can I order new ones or get replacements? The leovinceusa website didn't list them for purchase.

Thanks!

What's the bike that the mounting strap and heat shield is needed for?
The parts can be sent to the supply source of you choice. Do you have a favorite shop?

Thanks for the quick response! In looking at it I am not sure this pipe actually is supposed to come with a heat shield. It is for an 02 LC4E KTM. The mounting strap I do need. Pro Moto Sports in Woodstock, GA is who I usually deal with.

I only see a slip-on being offered for that application. So if you want a heat shield, our universal carbon fiber heat shield would work on the stock KTM head pipe.
Pro Moto Sports isn't set up with us direct, but I can call and talk with them tomorrow if you would like. Please email me at randy@leovinceusa.com with your contact info if you would me to pursue this.

Randy,

Are there any plans for a slip-on, non-repack, silencer, with spark arrester for the Suzuki DR650? There more than a few of us who'd buy one, in a heart beat. As long as I'm asking for the Sun, Moon and Stars, it'd be great it if it was under $500.00

Welcome aboard and thanks for coming here to answer rider's questions. I'm going to move this thread to Vendors, and add "ask your exahaust questions here", which is what other vendors have done.

Hello Mr. Hyden, I have a 2006 KTM 640 Adventure and I don't see an exhaust for it on the website, Is it a discontinued item?
Thank you , Nick

Why does the KTM Super Enduro Exhaust from Leo V fit so poorly?

(I know I should ask you guys directly and I did, but since you asked so nicely I figured I would ask again )

Your product is excellent. I just put a slip-on system on my '07 Suzuki Bandit 1250S. It sounds awesome with the baffle out but I kept it in since on the long haul the noise became too much for my ears. The fit an finish are top notch and the centerstand bump was a nice touch. My one complaint was the can strap was a bear to get clamped down with the provided bolt which was 5mm too short IMO. Trip to the hardware store solved that.

Pipes for a KTM Adv 990

Thanks for offering to definitively answer questions. I am soon to get a 2007 KTM Adventure 990 and will be interested at some point in aftermarket exhausts - pretty much only to save weight. I do not care about extra bhp's or db's.

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

Unfortunately no

(Yes, we would sell muffler we could make.)
