Leo Vince LV-One EVO II Slip-On Exhaust BMW G650GS / Sertao
great mod for this bike
This exhaust transforms the beemer g650gs from a sewing maching into a thumper. Quite a bit lighter than stock and looks great. It really wakes this bike up with quicker rev and a noticable increase in power. Good quality for the price. Excellent upgrade!

Best Value for G650GS
I spent a lot of time researching other manufacturers, like Arrow, charging upwards of $700 (terrible website btw). not much available like there is for the 1200GS or 800GS models. This is first reasonably priced model I've found & readily available. Don't expect much gains in HP - maybe a couple at best. The biggest appreciable gain is in weight loss & sound gain from the Leo Vince. Definitely a nice upgrade if you're looking to customize your 650GS without breaking the bank.

I installed this on my BMW G650GS Sertao to replace the stock, heavy double cans. Very straight forward and easy installation. Fits great with BMW OEM Vario cases. Makes the bike sound great--like a real thumper, and is not noticeably louder then stock exhaust. This also gave me room to put a tool tube on the right side of the bike where the old exhaust can was. All of that and a considerable weight savings.

Great sounding can that'll make you forget that old sewing machine sound
This was a great buy. I read about it in the forums and decided to pick it on a rainy day. I'm used to beefier sounding exhausts on my other bikes, so when I purchased my G650Gs Sertao, this was one of the first things I looked to replace. The stock sounded more like a tattoo gun than a supposed dual sporty.
The space savings from removing the stock setup is enough to pick this up. I'll be fitting two tool tubes to the back rack in it's place.

I like this slip-on
I like this slip on due it it's great sound and awesome price. I love the weight loss this slip-on offered me from the stock goofy looking G650GS silencer. One of those stock silencer is fake and not even used. I was worried that the bike would look goofy without dual pipes, but the bike still looks great and the loss of one pipe isn't noticeable.
This pipe has a great sound. If you take the baffle out, it still sounds good, and is unbelievably loud, if that's your cup of tea. I typically run my bikes without a baffle, so I removed the baffle on this one prior to installation. When I started the bike up the first time with this new pipe (no baffle), it scared me really bad and I hit the kill switch to turn it off. I now run it with the baffle. But up to you!
Again, I loved the price. Installation of the pipe was really easy. Removal of the stock silencers was a hassle, but that shouldn't deter you from buying this.
The pipe comes with the Leo Vince sticker already on the pipe. If you don't want that it can be pulled off (probably easier to remove prior to installation.)
I recommend this slip-on to all.

Good mod for the $$$
I originally made this purchase for a 2012 Sertao as a way to free up the extra space taken by the somewhat useless dual exhaust (auxiliary tank, to be specific). Now that the old system is gone, I'm even more impressed with the smoothness of low range power. The bike also no longer sounds like a sewing machine and lost some decent weight, so bonus! And a bit of a shameless plug, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw $319 for the initial price and the same number when I checked out, no tax and no shipping for a pipe that showed up two days later.
The only side note is to be careful with the torque specs, as it seemed pretty easy to get close or over the recommended specs without much effort.

Excellent upgrade for the 21012 BMW 650 Sertao
I installed the stainless version of this slip on. The printed instructions that came with it are not very good but the only tricky part is determining where the bracket mounts to the frame towards the back of the muffler. The fit and finish are excellent and it installed on the bike as if it were from the BMW factory. A spring puller tool was provided and made attaching the springs easy. The entire install process took about 15 minutes. The Leo Vince slip on is 8lbs lighter than stock according to my bathroom scale. I created a tool/storage container from 3" pvc and installed it where the short/right can was mounted. This slip on is a bit louder than stock but very acceptable and not too loud. The pipe allows the bike to rev further between gears, particularly in the upper rpm range. I highly recommend this upgrade and the Revzilla service, shipping and price are second to none.

I put this muffler/mid pipe on a new '12 G650GS, so I have no way to gauge performance increase. I doubt there was much gain, more because of the bike, not the muffler. Installation was physically simple. Directions were worthless. Either way, the system appears to be very well made. Fit and finish are awesome. Makes the GS sound like a older XT650, sound proper, like a big enduro thumper! Exhaust is definitely louder that stock, but not too loud. Cruising at highway speed, you can barely hear it, until you crack the throttle. I am very happy with this purchase.
