    Installed mine the other day (no pics yet).....sounds sweet, love blipping the throttle just to hear it. No backfiring yet. :D

    Again..... A little back firing is absolutely normal.... Unburned gasses in the pipe goes leaner when closing the throttle......fuel gets cut....but air moves somewhat more unrestricted....pipe goes instantly lean....and you have backfiring.... What you don`t want is any backfiring while the throttle is open. Then there is a problem.

    I thought I would post an update to my prior posts now that I have put some riding time in since the install. I have had the DB Killer out the whole time. I have really started liking the exhaust! It sounds great and the backfiring is very minimal now, it seems like the bike has adjusted to the exhaust.

    I tried one on my F650GS. Very nice sound without the db killer, just a tad louder than stock. NO backfiring at all (stock air filter).

    With the db killer installed, it is quieter than stock.

    I've since sold my bike and my Leo One is for sale in the flea market.

    I paid $330 + shipping from MotorcycleSuperstore.com

    Had my Leo on for a couple weeks. I was initially getting a bit of backfire on deceleration, but after a small bead of high-temp silicone at the header/slipon union, I haven't had any since.
    I had horrible backfires on my TransAlp and it drove me nuts. I couldn't stand having the same pop-pop on this bike.

    I just bought a '10 F800GS as a replacement bike for my KTM 990ADV. I was looking for new pipes and wondered if the stainless steel verson of the Leo's get really hot.

    I suppose they do but am not sure.

    I guess the arbon ones don't get hot at all..

    Anyone who has them?
    Thx!
