New LV cans came today. For 529 shipped I like em. I promptly removed the blue and yellow foil stickers to go faster and reduce free advertising.

Got a weight for those cans? Curious how much savings you get. I weighed the stockers at about 9lbs each and my Yoshi SS cans are a little over 6lbs each. Carbons should be nice and light.

I stuck the collector pipes and y-pipe together for the pic obviously. Weights are as follows:

CF can - 4.0 lbs (with db reducers installed)
Collector pipe - .8 lbs
Y-pipe - .8 lbs

Now if my header will ever get back from Jet-Hot I'll be ready for a shiny new setup.

That is awesome. Both cans weigh less than 1 stocker.

Always liked the Leo pipes - appear to be well made. I even like the stickers - it's good to let people know you have something special on ya ride.

The Y pipe looks like the pipes are a larger diameter than the stockers - I'll be interested to see what/where that alters the torque/ power curves.

I put a full Leo CF system on my 2002 ZX9R earlier this year. All I can say is that I LOVE it. Noticeable difference in my mid-range power and they sound great without being too loud....not to mention the good looks and weight savings. Good quality stuff.

I finally got the pipes installed along with my jet-hot coated header. The pipes are great and sound good - deep but not loud. I have the silencers installed and plan to leave them. The y-pipe does not have anything inside like the stock unit.

IMPORTANT DRAWBACK: The LV mounts do not allow the use of the Givi rack which really sucks. I use my E55 top box all the time. I took the rack off temporarily to test the pipes but now I have to decide whether to change pipes or buy a SW Motech mounting plate which should work. That unit apparently doesn't work with a Corbin seat, however, which is another issue since I have one.

I've been going around in circles trying to make everything work.

It really sucks that Givi and SW-Motech design their side case holders around using the OEM cans and the OEM footpegs.

I have a single sided Leo Vince ---- I was able to run the ALU-Rack rear rack but can't run any side cases because of my SATO rear sets.

Add to that, because of the Alu-Rack...... I'm having to use an Air-Hawk seat cushion instead of the Corbin.

Its all a bunch of BS compromises.......
