The 13.2:1 I am talking about is at 100% throttle, I tune around 13.6:1 on the cruise.

All the dyno graphs posted are at 100% throttle.

I am getting 13.6/ to 13.9L/100kms around town & on the open road 15L+/100kms,

Can Anyone indicate where can I buy those cans online? My father should be in US for a short visit this coming April, I think that if I can find those LVs around the ballpark of $600-800 they should be the best deal I can make.

Akras are around ~ $1800 which is quite prohibitive.

Thanks kev, but I should have detailed my request better: I'm looking for someplace to buy online in US, preferably well-established stores. I did too a quick search on ebay but all I see are people selling them in Europe. I thought those were made in US?!

The Leo's are nice. Good quality and sound. A touch on the loud side, even with baffles in, at least for my neighbor's liking. I saw a 3mpg decrease when I gave my bike the full treatment. 2nd Flies removed, SAS/Canister, RC8 front stack, Rottweiler air filter, LV's and Kev's Map #20. The bike is transformed, so I'm not complaining, but I onlly mention it to say that on average I've gone down from 39mpg to seeing about 36mpg per tank.

Only other issue that you should know about, regarding the LV's is that the SMT luggage rack/exhaust mounting bolt is not straight, so it will cause the cans to be at a slight angle. There was another forum thread that discussed this, but you can either live with a slight "tow out" to the cans (as viewed when mounted from behind) or you can try to cut some rubber gaskets and make the exhaust hanger straight, artificially.

Overall, great choice. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the information so far, but my original question remains open: where can I find LeoVinces (or even Arrows at this point) on a physical store or well-established online store in the US (preferably west coast)? For some reason I cant find them anywhere.

Also, mine is a 2010 990 SMR, so I think the comment about the skewed SMT mounting bolt doesn't apply?

Thanks,

I just bought a set of Leo Vince pipes at RevZilla 2 weeks ago. The item number was 803030 and it specifies that it will fit the 990 SMT. Cost was $688.45. I put them on this afternoon, everything worked out but it was a bit of work because one of the header collector parts was slightly out of round.

I have a question though. They supply it with a heat reflective pad for sticking on somewhere but I the directions don't say where. Anybody know where this should go or whether it is even needed?

Gary, I never used mine. Still have the stock heat shields.

I'm surprised L/V is back in the U.S., they were headquartered near me in Richmond, California. I met a rep at 'Speed Sports' a month ago and he confided that, at the depths of the recession the scooter market in Europe took a dive and took L/V down. Never thought scooters were an important part part of their business until this fine fellow schooled me.

I've ridden over 30K miles with my L/V and loved every minute of it. They still look and sound awesome!

Thanks for your reply Boot Works. There is a lot of heat coming off the little header collector system where it sits right underneath the plastic housing for the ABS and some electrical gear. Underneath that plastic housing is a factory glued on reflective heat pad but it doesn't quite shield the plastic further back so I was a little worried about that. Leo supplies a small square of this adhesive reflective pad but no indication as to where you should be putting it.

Read the instruction more carefully and I see the reflective foil is for use on the 990 R, not the SMT I have. I will assume the heat on the box will be fine with the protection provided by factory installed reflective foil.

Eric, I also live in Brazil and 4 months ago I bought a LeoVince from Revzilla that I brought to Brazil in my luggage. It was worth every penny.

BUT now the exchange rate has doubled I think you better start looking for options there...

Unless I get an used one this upgrade will have to wait. Specially after my last spin, the engine brake on the SMT is massive compared to my Speed Triple, every corner I downshifted I had the back tire hoping. :lol: :lol: I'll keep an eye e bay.

Hello Guys!

Im a (soon to be) new SMT owner, and have a question regarding the Leo's.
For some reason the 8414E only lists as 990 SM and SMR viable on the websites i can find that sell it.

I've inquired with the seller (who didnt know) and a KTM dealer (who was kinda sure it would fit, but not 100%) and a Dutch Motorcycle Forum (where one user claimed the brackets are different for SMR/SMT)
So am turning to the experts(aka you guys ;) ) to find out if there is a difference with the Mounts for the SMR or the SMT.

Long question short, would these exhausts fit the SMT 2011 no problem, or should i look into other options?

(heres the link: https://www.leovince-uitlaten.nl/ktm-82 ... 950/990-sm )

Hope to hear from you guys soon!

Dennis

Thanks! Now I have to make the decision between MIVV's, Leo's or wings :P since they are all pretty much available for the same price in the Netherlands!

I can vouch for the quality of the Leos. They sound nice too and plenty loud enough with the baffles in.
I'm less keen on Mivvs. The guy who runs the dyno in the workshop that service my Ducati use has seen a few on Multistradas and he doesn't rate them at all. He said buy Leos.

Another dyno shop which mapped my SMT recommended the Leos as well.
Don't know much about the Wings but people who've bought them seems to like them.
