I have the Akra expensive I know but top quality lovely sound whilst not being too loud (ie it's legal) and no loading on my insurance premium when I declared it

What I like about the Akrapovic (and the Scorpion and Remus) is that they come with a mounting plate rather than one of those clamps/silicon bands. Looks much better I think.

For $199.00 the Leo Vince sounds a whole lot better.
Here's the link for the stopper thread :>>>> link hidden <<<<

Revzilla is out of stock on the Leo and haven't restocked it.  Has it been discontinued?

It was out of stock when I was looking for mine also - it took a few weeks and they got it back. Best seller for the $'s- Check out the You tube sound clips on different exhausts. One of the great things for me is that it cools down in minutes so I can cover my bike up asap as opposed to the original taking 30-45 minutes to get cool enough to cover.
Here's another place that has it, I just like doing business with Revzilla.com

Thanks guys. Definitely good for though here, going to troll through YouTube although you can't really get a good feel of the sound in video.

Hi DomC - although the Scorpion Taper is shorter and stubbier, I'm not sure it is all that much higher than stock, it just looks that way. As I recall, they both exit pretty much in line with the top of the tyre... I will try and compare the hight with a stock pipe over the next few days and will let you know...

Any luck yet, Jo?

Very smart pipe. A question you may not be able to answer, but does this upswept exhaust still allow you to use the stock Honda panniers?

Just finished the installation of a Ti system sourced from the nice folks at GL. The top of the highest point of the can is about 24.5 inches off the ground on my '16 with stock suspension bits.

Let me know the specifics if you'd like other measurements Dom.

Cheers, Paul, that's helpful. What brand is the Ti system you've installed?

Ooops, sorry Dom, I wasn't very clear was I.  :110:
It's the Scorpion tapered can as shown in Jo's post earlier in this thread. The can was sourced here in the US from the nice folks at Giant Loop. It was a bit spendy at just over $600.00 but seems to be well made and sounds sooo nice. Not to loud, not to quite, and with a very deep baritone voice. I'm running it with out the baffles and I don't think the neighbors will mind one bit as I gently leave  the community.
