    For anyone interested in a Beowulf exhaust, they just increased their shipping charges for international shipping. For those of us in Canada, it went from 40 pounds to 80 pounds. When contacted, they say their shipping cost to Canada is actually more like 115 pounds - even with regular post - so they're absorbing some cost either way.

    You'd think there would be cheaper shipping methods available.

    In any case, just a heads up for those considering the exhaust.

    US is still $40. then again they do have some odd pricing structures... The stainless is 145, black powder coated is 155, Titanium is 195 (GBP that is...). But if you get the carbon cap on the oval ones it is 50 pounds for the stainless or titanium, but then 100 pounds if you order the black powder coated one. :huh

    Why would it be double for an end cap on a black powder coated pipe?

    Remus,Sebring,Mivv,Akrapovic,BOS,Leovince.

    I am sorry the enduro-magazine is only a small magazine and theres no internet link for the test available.

    Not so. They rise and fall together but fire alternately.

    I just paid 155lbs for a black stubby plus 50lbs for the carbon cap plus 40 for US shipping. I think you're better off contacting them directly vs using the web site check out.

    Here's a quick video if you want to hear the Leo Vince with db reducer removed in a "real world" riding situation.

    Leo Vince SBK Oval EVOII Carbon Slip-On.

    $450 from Revzilla.com. Free shipping. No tax (might be a Minnesota thing). Light as a feather! Seems built extremely well!

    I'm stoked to put it on and remove the EVOII silencer insert!!! You can hear it in DolphinJohn's video post above. He's also got the carbon model with the insert removed.

    I've got about 7,000 miles on mine with no change in the sound. I'm hoping that what Leo Vince says is true and it won't need re-packing.

    Congrats Griz. Really anything other than stock is great.

    Were you shocked when you felt the weight of the stock can when you took it off?
