Starting this thread because I just purchased this pipe and wanted to have a dedicated thread for questions/reviews/discussions.
I love the look of the stock exhaust but want more sound out of it. The stock exhaust is already small and titanium so I saw no reason to spend a bunch of money replacing it. From the existing youtube videos I've seen just replacing the current mid pipe section, where the cat is, with a straight through design; it is quite loud. In fact its a little too loud for my taste.
After doing some searching around I found this pipe from Leo Vince that seems to have a small resonator in it that I am hoping will get rid of some of the rasp.
First problem I ran into was realizing that no one had this in stock online!
So I took the Parts Unlimited Part #: 1812-0286 on the website and found a local distributor. They charged me $298 and said it will arrive sometime in September.
Once it arrives I will follow up with initial impressions, pictures, install videos, and a full review

Just wanted to post an updated that I cancelled my order for this link pipe.
I had not heard anything from the dealer at all so I called them today. The dealer informed me that the pipe was on backorder and they had no idea when part would come in but said November 19th would be earliest if it even came in then.
I decided to go a head and get my money back and just see if I can get the pipe another way.

I totally agree with you, I'm kinda afraid of messing with a good thing. I'm more worried about the reflash after removing cat and a loss of mileage and already dismal range with this bike, I ride almost every day so another 2 mpg loss would suck. I'm pretty sure a reflash will be necessary with any exhaust upgrade or it'll never run right without it.
