Leo Vince LV-One EVO II Slip-On Exhaust Triumph Tiger 800 / XC 2011-2014
Excellent can with a few suprises
I had been considering putting an aftermarket exhaust on my 2014 Tiger 800 ABS for quite a while. When the Leo Vince line became available again I took the plunge. My first observation was that it fit perfectly and was on the bike in about 15 minutes. The mounting system looks very classy with carbon fiber support straps and.mounting bracket. Rather than using plain bolts with washers there are nicely machined pieces with hex head bolts. Very nice.
However, once I got the bike in the sunlight I noticed that the entire top of the can had been marred by the cardboard packing material. Bummer because I know I can't return it once it has been mounted. Oh well, it's a dirt bike right?
I was ready to be unimpressed with any possible performance changes but the improvement is actually significant. The engine seems to breathe easier and revs more quickly. Roll ons at 60 mph are quite a bit more energetic. The sound is the perfect low , growling tone but i wouldn't want it any louder. Also, the backfiring when slowing is getting old. It's quite loud. I may have the dealer install the ECU map for the Arrow pipe and see if it helps.
So overall I highly recommend this can. Just be sure to check the finish before you mount it.

Wish I'd fitted it sooner.
The slip-on exhaust looks and feels very high quality. It's so much lighter than the OEM exhaust. I've not removed the dB killer, but still the sound is amazing without being too loud. The burble on overrun is my favorite part. I can't say I've noticed any increase in power or torque, but I bought it for the sound and weight saving. I'm sure a Dyno would show an improved curve. I have no experience with fitting aftermarket parts but I found it incredibly easy to install.
I'd imagine durability is great, but I can't say just yet, that's why I only gave 4 stars.

Huge difference! Forget the Arrow.
Easy to install
Beautiful carbon finish that stays cool to touch.
Added a beautiful low end growl to balance the whine of my Tigers triple inline engine noise.
I took the "made to remove" baffle out and just love it, its throaty and loud, but not obnoxious or glass shakingly loud, your miles may vary depending on what type bike you have.
For the results, looks, and price point I just can't justify going to an Arrow or similar slip on that's more expensive.

El sonido mejora radicalmente entre el escape oem y leo vince, ligero y de fácil instalación
La relación precio benefico es muy buena si lo comparas contra otras marcas similares

Excellent SlipOn for an even better price.
I got the Stainless version of this exhaust for my TIger. I installed it myself in under an hour, everything fit perfectly, no need to bend anything into place. I left the dB killer in for now and it isn't very loud, but gives a much better tone than the stock unit. While riding the bike you still hear more of this bike's very loud intake than you do of the exhaust, but I can't say what passerby's hear more of.
it's also about half the size of the stock exhaust and makes the bike look a lot better, and it doesn't get nearly as hot. I plan on taking the dB killer out once I get a chance to take it in to the dealer and have them switch the bike over to the higher performance engine map. Overall fit an finish is fantastic.
One thing to note is that this item does not ship from RevZilla's Philly location, it comes from another warehouse in California, and ships FedEx instead of the usual UPS. I usually get items to my house in CT the next day when I order from RevZilla with standard shipping, but this item didn't ship until a few days after I ordered, and then took a week to get here. About average for ordering stuff online, but not at the level of RevZilla's usual super fast processing.

great exhaust gives the tiger the growl
Needed a an exhaust that whole make the tiger sound like a motorcycle since the original was a bit too mellow. Did a ton of research and decided to go for the leo V, Its a great sounding exhaust, it sounds better with more miles. Installation was easy.

Tiger roars with Leo Vince
Excellent slip on, installation was a snap, everything fit perfect and the workmanship is top notch. I had a Arrow on the Tiger in the past and the LV is just as nice a unit at half the price, the sound level is between the Arrow with the baffle and without the baffle and has a nice tone. I used the stock tune and left the DB killer in and probably get a little lower mph, but this is due to winding the Tiger out just to hear the exhaust note. A big thumbs up to ZLA and LV.
I didn't check off durability as only time will tell but I don't see any problems with it lasting.

good pipe great price
ordered the exhaust arrived quick. Revzilla had the best price. The exhaust sounds great and looks great. Huge weight savings over stock. The tiger 800 xc has a little more punch around 6000 rpm. If your looking for great sound and weight savings look no further Leo Vince-lv one EVO II.
