    Hello! :wave

    Calling all Leo Vince Owners!

    Can anyone tell me whether the following system:

    Leo Vince Oval EVO II Exhaust System Suzuki DL650 V-Strom 2004-2011

    Is compatible with a 650 vstrom 2010, fitted with the following:

    Alt Rider Crash Bars, Bash plate and SW Motech centre stand?????????

    The reason i ask is i am about to purchase a system and have read in some dark and evil corner of the internet that the system will NOT fit a bike with a centre stand installed (Which i find hard to believe).

    Below is a piccy of my ride with its current set up

    Correct. I have the full Leo system. It fits fine. Though I did grind the header on a deep right lean (haven't touched it down since so that's a plus). The SW centerstand I have won't fit with it. The header system on the Leo's wasn't designed with a lot of fore thought. Sure sounds nice though.

    I love the bars, they look so tough on the bike. I just put back on my old Givi's though to mount a skidplate. If you're interested, PM me. I can make a really good deal on mine. No longer need them.

    I like the Givi crash bars on mine(mostly because the bike came with them) but the Touratech ones look good to.
    Thinking about trading my 06 Vee for a Uly, any thoughts??

    Why? You got a honking hard-on for an air-cooled, leaky, push-rod H-D engine? :huh

    Yea I guess I'm a sucker for those. I have had two and like the way they ride. I like my Vee to, but whatever bike I get I keep looking at Uly's again.
