Leo Vince Slipon Install

Hey guys and gals, I don't post very much to this site. But I do find an amazing amount of information on here. Last night I finished the install of the slip ons and they look and sound awesome. One more item which is adding to the blackness I love about my bike. The Leo Vince gear is truly top quality gear and I don't regret for one minute buying it. I just can't wait to hit the open road with it on the bike, still not road ready conditions up here in Newfoundland, Canada.

I can post install pics when I have the documentation completed. If you need any infoyou can email me at [email protected]. I don't check this site everyday.

Hi Melvin

Planning any PCIII dyno thing ? let us (me) know how it work's out - power, "pull", just plain everything about it work's.
I might be a contender to the same mod (but not the carbon one's) so any info about this mod would be welcome.

They have a lovely, absolute lovely growl to them with the "noise reducers" removed. I have only had the bike started in my friends garage. I am hoping to get it out this weekend coming, I am waiting on new mirrors and new levers for it. And I have to change the oil on it.

I may ask Santa for the Power Commander for Christmas. Unfortuantely we have no dynos up here for testing. Unless PC has a program for the 919 and the LVs I don't think I am going to fool around with finding one that suits my bike. Don't want to risk toasting the engine.

I only got a chance to go for a quick run but I absolutely love it. By the way we got 4 inches of snow of here last night and about 3 inches of rain afterwards.

Those are gorgeous, one of the few pipes I like as much as my Satos. Curious how your bike runs without a PCIII, mine felt like it lost some low end punch at the expense of gaining high end power until I installed the powercommander.

I haven't had the chance to really use the bike yet however the bike seems to run really well.

I may go for the PCIII, I have also thought about the Cobra FI2000R. Alot of the guys and gals around here use the PC but I wouldn;t mind trying something a little different. Cobra has discontinued the FI2000R for the 919 but there are still a few online place I can get them
