That is good to hear. Do you know if the LV pipe for the 300 is the same as the one for the 250? Do you notice any improvement in the power after installing the LV pipe? I think you might be the first GTS 300 owner here to install a LV pipe, congratulations.

I can't imagine the LV actually adds much performance. I mean, it didn't on the 250s, and doesn't really on the 200. They allow the engine to breathe ever-so-slightly better, and the header length isn't properly tuned for the harmonics of the engine.

"goes like stink" might be a bit ambitious - probably already went like stink. Razz emoticon

Performance gains on these bikes will almost always come from:
variator
upgears
EFI controls
RPM management

None of the above are really dealt with by the slide-on that is the LV.

Don't get me wrong. It weighs less and is sturdier. I like it, and like mine. It just ain't makin' such a huge difference in performance.

i know ... i think its all in the mind if you get that ... you feel i have a new exhaust it must go faster .. but then do i want it any faster .. its great with the standad exhaust .. and is really the same with this LV .. but it does sound good .. so gives you feeling its faster ..

what does a Leo Vince exhaust do for a scooter?

there's one available for my 250, but at $300+, what is the advantage to adding one? I'm still relatively new to the world of scooters...

When or if you ever have to replace the OE pipe you'll see the difference - OE is £300+ over here in UK.
On my Burgman, removing the baffle pipe on the 4Road was a simple undoing of two Allen bolts - they even supplied an Allen key to do the job.

On the dyno at Taffspeed, the scoot pushed out more HP with the baffles out, so I left them out.

Don't take out the baffle/silencer. It's offensive sounding. Really, it isn't just loud, it's upsetting. I took mine out, and even though I'm thousands of miles from the ocean, I'm convinced whales had miscarriages when I was at WOT. Harley people gave me funny looks while holding their ears. Don't do it.

W/O the baffle, it sounds good AT IDLE. Take the scoot out on the road and open it up, it sounds offensively loud.

Hey Lou, I see this is your first post.... You do realize that this thread is well over a year old. Search for Leo Vince, there's lots of recent info.

I am still debating on what pipe to get for my 300. I am thinking to get PM Tuning Performance Exhaust.
