    I'd like a bit more sound out of my exhaust. I had a Staintune on my old bike and liked it but, they want almost $1K for the slip-on. Akrapovic is nice, but again, a bit pricey. How is the Leo Vince or Two Brothers etc.?

    I just bought a Leo Vince exhaust. Got it for ~$290 from solomotoparts.com. Looks great, sounds great and can't beat the price.

    I just got the Leo Vince also. Love it. Nice deep sound. Haven't tried it with the baffle out yet.

    It's listed on their site for $327, which what I paid for mine through Revzilla. Did you get a discount of some kind.

    Leo Vince if decent, Italian made, not excessively loud and looks great too. Best of all, its priced reasonably cheaper than other good exhausts. Mine was an open box (but unused) that I picked up for $220 :D

    Can anyone answer this....?

    Ive seen, heard, held, and installed quite a few different exhaust brands for various bikes.

    Other than build material(titanium vs CF vs aluminum vs stainless) why the vast differences in price?

    Why is a Remus slipon $700+ vs the LV at $300+?

    I've installed cheap slipons and the build quality was just the same, with a similar sound, as more pricey slip-ons. I know that these companies are not using some special technology that cheaper exhausts don't have. A slip-on is a pretty simple concept, basically a lighter less restrictive version of the stock setup. So why the higher price.

    What would be the benefit of going to a Remus slip-on over a LV? Just curious if anyone can enlighten me as to if there is something better about them, other than paying a premium for a label

    I totally agree and I have found no major differences to justify that extra cost. The only difference that you can easily find out is the build quality and craftsmanship. Most people buy what they like aesthetically and fits their budget. I have a full Titanium race exhaust on my S1000RR, which was $1800, almost $500 cheaper than Akrapovic, but costlier than some other cheaper brands. If you are looking to get an aftermarket exhaust, you can't go wrong with any good branded exhaust (exclude the cheap fleabay ones from your shopping list).

    I just purchased the Two brothers exhaust from solomotoparts.... Will post up some pics when it comes

    Just got the two brothers exhaust it. Really impressed with it and it was about the same price of the LV.

    Here is a crappy pic of the stock and two brothers side by side. You can see how thin the 2B is compared to stock. The weight difference is amazing. Just holding the two and it's incredibly noticeable. The sound is fantastic too!

    My new Leo came in today so I mounted without the Db Killer. It's got a nice bark to it but I may put the Db Killer back so as not to piss off the neighbors. I have a question about the perforated round disc that was loose in the packing box. It's stamped 58. It looks like a spark arrestor but very restrictive. Is it a spark arrestor?

    No it is a db killer for the Euro's. Quieter than stock and a real HP killer. Fits between the mid pipe and Front of the muffler.
