For new and affordable, try Bosson in CT. Probably in the region of R2.5k for a slip-on.

Had a Leo Vince... man was that thing loud!

Best pipe there is for that bike at reasonable cost.

If you want to spend money, you've already been given the alternatives.

What I did, pooratech style on my old F650.  Remove the secondary (RH) silencer, to make way for a tool tube. and blank off the cross pipe, leaving the option to re-fit, which I did when I sold the bike.

Bash out the guts of the catastrophic converter in the original LH muffler, and open out the tail outlet a bit with a hole saw. Crude, possibly illegal, but worked for me, and had no effect whatsoever on performance or consumption.  :biggrin:

I suspect I might have owned that bike?  ...bought it from Knucklehead in 2014. Sounded like a fruitfly.

I knew that bike. Rode with Craig and Jason, but that one wasn't mine.

Their is also a guy in pinelands who does the same for 2000, but he needs your bike to stay there for 2 days.

DO NOT do the blank off on OEM exhaust system, been there done that paid school fees and it sounds horrid.  Rather sell your old system and buy new.

Fitted this one to mine, very happy and (who knows why) better fuel economy 10-15%  :o  when doing long trips.  Quiet at cruising speed, barks when you open up.

Not as loud as the local ones - VDL, Cowley, Bosson.  Can't comment on the Leo Vince though.  Twin Bros from what I understand also loud but sure you can get a DB killer.  Price not sure....

Good luck!
