Re: Leo Vince Install

Glad you joined the forum. It is a great place. I would certainly try the battery unplug for a couple of minutes. Hopefully, that will help. Had mine dyno'ed using DB killer, so have not tried riding without them. I would be curious to know how your bike would run with a tank of premium fuel. When my set came in, it seemed to run smoother with premium before it was dyno'ed.

Re: Leo Vince Install

k i will try the battery-unplugging.

In Belgium we have only choice in RON95 and 98 and i run on 95.
Since there are a few people here from Belgium, where should i go for a TB sync?

and if I'm going to buy some killers, should i look for NR32's for both of the cans?

I always run RON98 (and not the RON98 from "discount warehouses" (Makro/Metro etc.)) and my bike seemed to be running a bit smoother as well.

A TB-sync is so easy, you'd better do it yourself instead of paying some place to do it....

As for the dB-killers; it would help to see a picture of your actual exhaust, as there are different versions of Leo's (and they were all called "SBK EvoII :disapprove).
But, just to let you know: dB-killers will cost between 40-50, EACH.
For that price, I would buy myself a Carbtune and get the TB-sync done myself and enjoy the full sound of those exhaust pipes.
But maybe you could contact the previous owner, to see if he has the dB-killers somewhere?

Grtz,


Degake

No, I don't have a Carbtune anymore, as I've sold it.

You could go ask your local dealer to give you an estimate for syncing the throttle bodies
Or just buy a Carbtune from their website, use it, and sell it for nearly the same amount of cash you bought it for
Do you have a PCIII already? If not, check out this guy. He has a company that imports motorcycle, returns them to stock form, and sells all the aftermarket stuff for good prices....
I've got mine PCIII from him years ago, as well as a couple of shocks for various bikes

Grtz,

Re: Leo Vince Install

Hi,

I installed my Leovince SBK last year. One thing I'm still curious about is that in my 'T-pipe', the drilled hole in the connection to the left side can/ 90 degree pipe (seen from rear) is a lot smaller than the diameter of the pipe itself.

Perhaps hard to understand what I mean but, obviously there is a hole drilled in to the pipe and another piece of pipe is then welded on there to get the 'T' shape... This is the connection just before the 90 degree pipe which then connects to the can.

This restricts the exhaust flow to the left can...

Does anyone else know if it supposed to be that way?

Thanks

It's supposed to be like that. Right can is main flow, left can is runoff/secondary.

Okay thanks.

Well I got suspicious on that because at perhaps 65-70mph / 110-120km/h on 6th gear (different speed on other gears, but roughly the same rpms which iI do not remember right now but anyway) the exhaust noise gets a little bit different. I would best describe the sound like pulses or something simular to that. On higher/lower rpm's / higher/lower speeds it disappears...

So for a while there I thought that pulse sound appeared due to that small hole and that it was a manufacturing miss...

Is it the same on your bike? It's kind of disturbing since you would think that something is going on, but I have tested different PC IV maps and there is no change. DB killers are installed.

Regards

Re: Leo Vince Install

Thank you for the post...MOST helpful I installed my Leo's last weekend, only took about 4 hours...with beer breaks.

The only part that was A LOT of trouble i had was how to setup the new "y" bracket that supports the fender and plate...nothing seemed to fit perfectly, and I was never very good at puzzles. But I finally got it together, not like this is a structural part of the bike so no worries.

LOVE the sound, perfect for what I was looking for, better tone, and a little warning bark for the cagers during my commute!

Thanks again!
