What is the sound/noise and performance like Steve?

Would love something that size for the XC.

Mate it sounds like BRAPPP!

I love the sound. Deep and throaty an a little bit naughty. I have a Leo Vince that is a much softer exhaust for civilization

I love that. Steve, how does it sound compared to the Staintune, which is supposedly legal, but is quite noisy under hard acceleration? Nice job BTW.

Staintune may be legal on the road but you can not take it off road into the forest as Staintune does not have a spark arrester fitted in the can and they have no plans to fit a spark arrester.

But, but!!!........When I received the muffler it was described on the packaging as being suitable for ISDE, noise wise, at least.

Forks high in mounts

Seen a few pics where folks have the front forks up higher in the mounts. Mine are flush with the triple clamp. Is there a benefit of doing this?

For me it's so my feet touch the ground well almost anyway.

Should steepen up the steering angle, make it turn faster, could be more unstable at high speed and put more weight on the front wheel under heavy breaking.

Question Front Guard

I've just fitted the Britannia Composites Lynx headlight assembly to my XC http://s3.amazonaws.com/advrider/1drink.gif , but now i need to find a suitable front guard. Does anyone have an opinion on which one suits best? I like the YZ guard but was hoping for something stronger! [url]http://s3.amazonaws.com/advrider/mwink.gif

Ye I noticed that when riding in NZ.. I just bought a gauze mesh net to slip over the can and a big MF hose clamp A lot of pipes in OZ do not have spark arrestors fitted as OEM.

You might want to move the compression/oil reservoir from that location. It "WILL" take a hit, as I know this from experience, and WILL wear and/or be susceptible to stone damaged before too long. I shifted mine up above the bipe and attached off the upper sub frame to keep it safe and out of the way. This is in my opinion a design flaw by Ohlins

It is much throatier than the S'tune with a bark like a rabid dog . Probably too loud for 90% of the time but is pretty cool. I wear earplugs so it doesn't bother me too much and it burbles on idle so is ok to creep or cruise past horses and such.

Thanks for the advice; Can you post a picture of the location of your reservoir.

Looks good ....how do you feel about the noise of the Leo? Is it acceptably loud or could it get a bit too noisy on a long run ???
