Leo-Vinci exhausts...

For 2003 CBR600RR. Are they any good? The dealer told me they were the best. Made in Italy. Dunno...
If not what about a street legal Akrapovic system? Do they make in CF?

I like the Two Brothers


I also like the M4.
BTW Akro only makes a Ti can for the 600rr, but is the best system $$ can buy. Expect $1K or more for a full system.

If you can't swing that the Two brothers sounds awesome & gives pretty good gains across the board.

I think it's hard to say what's the best... but Leo Vinci's are very well constructed. Their welds are beautiful, their materials are first rate. The sound is full-bodied throaty without being D&D obnoxious.

But they are no better or worse than Akrapovic, Arrow, Arata, Moriwaki, Sato, or Yoshimura. What they are is a good buy for the money, with only perhaps Yosh being the more price attractive... but that would depend entirely whom you purchased it from & how much they discounted.

Yes, both L.V. and Akra as well as Arrow, Arata, Yosh & Sato make a c/f cannisters along with Ti.

Shop around - do massive searches and you can find differences of more than $100.00 for the same pipe. Time is $$$ as they say. Also, check into what the S&H charges are from each vendor, as this cost may erase any real savings. Some places don't even charge S&H!

Good luck.

Cheers

How about a Termigninoni? I've seen an R6 with one. And obviously Ducati uses the exclusively for their bikes.
I am currently thinking between L.V. Akrapovic or Termi.

I just put a LV on my girlfriends R6 she loves it and I think it sound damn good too. I know on the 05 - R6 it makes 6hp at the wheel as per LV's published dyno sheets. I would recommend it. BTW: the carbon fiber looks very nice.

The new Leo distributor has had tons of complaints about their lack of customer service & their prices have gone up too..


Two Mothers is the shittiest exhaust you can buy



Article on exhausts I wrote that is oriented towards the RC51, but the info pretty much rings true for all the brands mentioned
