45L (left) + 37L (right) + SW mounts= 41" (symmetrical)

2x 37's would be about 2" less and asymmetrical

I wasn't aware of that. I figured it would throw a code, like most obd2 systems if there is an issue with the evap. I will try unhooking it and looking for a trouble code. If it doesn't throw a code then it is outa there! Thanks for the heads up.

Just wanted to comment on all the corbin hate. I've had Corbins on my VFR and DR650 for over 100k miles in all kinds of weather including spending 10 hours in a torrential rain riding through the remnants of a hurricane and had no problems with the seats absorbing water. YMMV.

I dont think it was "Corbin Hate" as much as Corbin comments. Even they say that thier seates aren't waterproof... I'm glad you have had luck with yours.

Not so much Corbin hate as Corbin disappointment. I had a Corbin seat on both a BMW K bike and a Yamaha and they both were heavy, soaked up rain, fit poorly to the point of having to shim their latches and hinges, and came apart at the seams within 2 years. Never again.

First negative comments I've ever heard on Corbin.

I've known for some time that Corbins (I have one on my ZZR) are heavy sums-o-bushes, and I'll admit that the fitment on the one I have is a little less than stellar (it squeaks when I put weight on it as it does not fit flush.)

I'd buy one again (I got this one secondhand) if:

A. I could get it for a significant discount (did, in my case.)
or
2. There are no other aftermarket options available.

Personal experience with Sargent, Renazco, etc., lead my preferences to other brands.

Agreed, the Corbins for the K100, K1100 series were horrible for me, worse than factory. Other Corbins, like on the V-Strom and Funduro were amazing, best seats I have owned. The T8 seat it right up there with the best, in comfort and fit the bike with no adjustments. I will not leave home without it.

At one point I said never again on Corbins too. Then, after two Sargents that had a tiny riders section and huge pilling area, bigger than the rider area, I decided to try Corbin again. Happy I did.

Aftermarket exhaust heat issues

Nice pics (above)

I am thinking about getting an aftermarket exhaust for my bike, but notice none of them have a heat shield any longer. Is heat emanating from the exhaust can a problem for passengers? Will they burn themselves if they touch it? Is the carbon fiber version not hot? Is there a way to take the stock heat shield and transfer it to the aftermarket can? I don't want my passengers to get burned.

Thanks for any info you may have.

Others certainly have more experience with the Leo Vince Carbon than me, given that I've only got 100 miles on it. Still, I picked it up based on reports that it stays pretty cool - my intent is to hang soft bags over it.

Today was fairly warm - 75F or so. Given that I was doing engine break-in, there was a lot of acceleration/deceleration going on - but no long bouts of high RPM's. I checked the pipe at several stops - and never had a problem keeping my hand on it. It was definitely warm, and if right up against a pair of pants - perhaps uncomfortably so. It didn't feel anywhere near hot enough to melt bags, though.

Standard tune on mine so far - not sure if the richer Arrow tune would make much temp difference one way or the other.

And no - the stock heat shield won't bolt up to the Leo Vince, as-is anyway.

Anyone running an aftermarket pipe with the factory luggage? I might want a lighter pipe but don't want to melt a hole in the nicely sealed and waterproof factory bags.

Got my CJ Designs tail rack mounted up. A very nice piece and fast shipping.





Seahorse case, I don't care for large tail boxes, this one is perfect for me.

XC shock fit in roadie

Curious, would the XC shock with the rebound adjustment fit the 800 roadie?

Thanks,
