    Repackable or good for life? How often?

    Thanks Skamikazee. What exhaust canister are you using? I see QD makes one but I'm wondering if it takes care of the back pressure loss due to using the no-cat header.

    Hi Ducksbane,

    Yes these pipes are made by Jase Barrett except for the endcap which is our own.

    We designed this end cap different to the normal barrett end cap by changing the direction of the exhaust by pointing it in a downwards direction to keep it away from blinkers, plastics and luggage to prevent heat damage.

    Do the carbon fiber pipes, Leo Vince , get hot as the stock pips?

    Is it real carbon fiber or faux?

    Do they need repacking or are they good for the life of the bike?

    I have the Leo Vince Carbon exhaust. Yes, main canister is made completely out of actual carbon fiber. The inlet and endcap are of course aluminum. And the carbon fiber stays a lot cooler than stock. I mean a lot cooler. I can hold my hand on it right after I kill the engine.

    Hello guys!!!!

    I would like your valuable knowledge....

    What about the Twalcom QD exhaust?

    Does it improves the bike's performance, or it makes it worse! As the stock and akrapovic have the baffle matter....(I don't know if I am calling it correct) and I am afraid if with the abovementioned exhaust, the bike does not operate smouthly and at its best!

    Please advise :D as I like the qd/twalcom very mush and I can not see any more the stock one:evil !

    Thanks in advance guys!!!!:clap

    They are packed with a high temp muffler packing and are very reliable product, as for lasting the life of the bike i guess that depends on how many hours you put on the bike! We have been testing the pipe in a few bikes for about 12 months with thousands of km's and there is no sign of getting louder or needing the packing replaced as yet.

    Ihave the QD exhaust titanium and header pipes..... It's much, MUCH louder for sure, powerwise, it's hard to say without puting it into a dyno, but it feels more powerfull, especialy past the 5K rpm, it feels as if it develops much faster then with stock exhaust, but then again, it might be just all in my head, you get adicted to the sound and i find myself changing gears at higer revs.
    And something else i noticed, i feel a more linear power delivery, i used to feel a jump somewhere around 5500Rpm, now it's smoother, although as i mentioned, with the QD i feel more power/faster delivery (more binary).

    Overall:
    LIGHTER
    SMALLER
    Feels more fun
    Every time i open up throttle(even in low end) i make that stupid childish smile :D
    Cagers not only notice you, but open up for you!
    looks great!

    Worth it

    Cheers! :freaky

    Thanks man!

    I like a lot the QD, more than the akrapovic! (and of course don't forget is at the half price and more....:D )!

    So I will place an order and will see! But the aluminium one....:wink:

    I was thinking that it may not be worse than the stock! That's for sure (I guess)!

    Is your statment re the loudness with or without the DB killer inplace. I ride in club events that require an exhaust to be no louder than 96db while reving in neutral at 5,000rpm and I was wondering if this exhaust would pass this test with the db killer in place.

    I just ordered a Shorty Beowulf and it is a beautiful exhaust. Sounds absolutely awesome. And for the price you cant beat it. It was $300 delivered to me in Chicago and only took 3 days to get here.:1drink

    Any chance at a pic? :wink:

    Still having a tough time deciding between the Holeshot (small size), and Leo Vince carbon (less heat?). Now at $300 looks like the Beowulf is in the picture. Decisions.

    Being as there are about 10 exhaust threads, I've lost track of where to look. Does anyone have experience with aftermarket exhaust mounting with Jesse's panniers? (The rack uses the exhaust bolt for support.)

    I've tried finding more info on the Mivv as well.... not too much out ther. I sent a PM to the fellow that had one in the other exhaust thread but I haven't heard anything back, yet.
