BigBird,
Any chance there is a dynotune (the makers of Power Commander) test center near you. A dyno comparison before and after would really quantify the results.

I did that for the full LV system, and the malossi variator, and the PC.

Bigbird, where did you order the LV from?
does it use the OEM pipes and headers?

Thanks for the report. I am interested in this mod for mine (2009).
Did it come drilled and tapped for O2 sensor for US model 600's?

Thanks

In addition, I can't wait to hear if there was a performance increase. Tell us you weights and did you install a different cluth yet?

Thanks

Yep, looks like it still tips up, but not as bad as the previous.
Btw the Yosh rep called me, wondering why i didn't show up at Hallet last weekend. said when he was at HQ, they had a silverwing on the test bed doing R&D!

Thanks for the video. A nice tone without being loud. When I put the LV slips ons on my VFR, I too left in the db killer. I immediately notice the bike seemed to rev more freely and the weight loss made it more "flickable" in the twisties.
Do you notice those affects or is it too early to tell? Not that I consider my SW "flickable" but I am a nut for weight reduction.

Thanks
Bob

After all the posts on here about noisy pipes, and you had a noisy Yoshimura exhaust on a 150cc 15bhp commuter scooter?

You should encourage Mrs bigbird to wear earplugs when on the scooter with you, it's part of ALGATT.

Does anyone know if the model 8552 is available in the states? Leovinceusa.com does not list it, and none of the dealers or shops I frequent can find a distributor who lists it. In fact, most have told me that their distributors are saying they can't get any Leo Vince stuff anymore. That sounds a bit odd to me -- does that mean I'd have to order from the manufacturer directly? That would be discouraging since, as noted above, the US website doesn't list it.

I'm not interested in the older "4Road" model they do list...

The 8552 isn't stocked in the USA, it's a special order item which LeoVince USA was happy to order for me. When I called them and placed the order, they were having a holiday sale and gave me a 15% discount and free shipping. But I have to wait a couple of months for it because the Italians, like most Europeans, take a lot of lengthy vacations.

I just registered with no problem. My only suggestion is, because the site asks for the activation code immediately upon registering, is to tell the member on that activation page to check their email now.

Just received and installed my LeoVince 8552 muffler. Top-notch stainless parts, easy install took about an hour. Sounds awsome without the reducer plug, not too loud at all. Can't really tell about performance increase because the Swing ran so strong before installing this muffler.

The muffler sounds loudest on acceleration, and smooths out at steady throttle, so I haven't found it to be too loud on the highway at all. I'm sure that's just a matter of personal preference.

I probably won't do a full "Stage 1" by messing with the air intake. I already have more than enough performance, I'm concerned about leaning out the fuel even though it's a closed loop system, and don't want to go the Power Commander route.

I just wanted more noise, and I got what I wanted.

I don't know why, but every reply done by BigBird was unreadable. Everyone else was fine. Why?
Also should the bike be mapped after instilling the exhaust?
I to do not want to do the Power Commander thing.
And are they available in the USA?

You can find it in the USA at leovinceusa.com. There was no dealer near me, so they sold the muffler to me directly. Right now they have a 15% off sale.

I've been riding with the muffler for 9 months now. It runs and sounds great and a Power Commander is not necessary. The LeoVince exhaust pipe has a port for the factory oxygen sensor, so the Silverwing will adjust for any changes in fuel mixture.
