Another exhaust question

Recommended Posts

This question was asked a few months ago with little/no reply - however, I thought I'd try again. Anyone ever hear of a Leo Vinci exhaust? They make a slip on that's supposed to do very well and keep things nice and quiet for $310 USD. All without making any changes to the airbox or carb.

Any input would be appreciated.

leo vinci makes nice stuff.but ive never seen one a drz let alone a slip on.

a slip on is a slip on.it still uses the stock head pipe wich is far from perfect.

any slip on doesnt "require" jetting as long as the air box isnt modded.

but if your not going to explore the bikes potential thru jetting and opening the air box,i see no point in exhuast changes.

I've used Leo Vince full systems on 3 sportbikes. Excellent workmanship, fit and finish. Performance was great too. Like burned said, if you're gonna change exhaust, you really should change jetting. :)

Great point regarding exploring the potential. I just happened to hear about the Leo Vince from a guy at the dealer yesterday. He really stressed that they do all their R&D on stock bikes, therefore no need for other changes. Gotta admit it seemed odd that they only offer a slip on.

Just interesting, and I figured it might be worth a thought/question or two before I go with my original plan of the FMF system with the airbox and jetting changes.

Thanks for the input.

The jetting on these bikes really suck stock, they need to be re-jetted period. Regardless what you do to the exhaust, airbox or whatever.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
