Arrow Help Me Decide... Jardine RT-1 vs. Leo Vince SBK

Which of the two would you chose and why? I love the sound of both of them (from what I can tell on youtube) and they both have great appeal to them as well.

I just cannot decide


I want an exhaust then when I am cruisng it sounds deep and throaty, then at WOT is S C R E A M S

Does anyone have any good sounding, decent vids I can watch? All the vids on youtube are all start up and idle. I don't care about that. I want to hear the bike cruising and WOT

If your bike is an 07+ go with leo but if your bike is an 03-06 than go with Jardine. This is why I said that....if you were to put the RT1 on the 07, the tail will look heavy and bulgy. The rt-1 looks better on the 03+ cuz this gen has a wider tail and its a perfect fit with the dual outlet on the rt-1. But its just my opinion sir... what matter is yours

Having had a Leo Vince and loved it, I figured helping w/ your decision would be a no-brainer. However, if sound and performance are secondary to appearance, then I'd go w/ whichever can flows w/ your bodywork. For example, if I had red/white/black fairings, I'd lean towards the Jardine (or Yoshimura, to add another option). That was a gripe I had w/ my old LV, the blue/yellow clashed w/ my color scheme. I also didn't like that it only had a label on the right side of the can.

Leo for sure. I had a jardine and it was a POS. Not to mention the leo looks better and has to be lighter.

Edit:

Here's the best pic I have of my RT-1:

WTB:
- Full set of race bodywork
- GP style windscreen (double bubble ok if cheap)
- Midpipe for Devil Rocket

I like my jardine, I like wider exhausts that take up most of the tail.

The Leo and other exhausts I feel look weird because they're skinny.

Akra is the best way to go, anybody here will say so.

You have already decided I know, just to reassure you, LEO out of those two hands down!

Hit up biohazardcycles through the forum here and they should be able to hook you up with a good deal, check out cycle sector as well.

Well again since I found out that Leo Vince only makes the SBK in aluminum, no more CF.... I might go with the Jardine RT-1 dual outlet exhaust.

Only problem is that Jardine is on a national nackorder until 7/15/2013 b/c of thier move....


I want an exhaust then when I am cruisng it sounds deep and throaty, then at WOT is S C R E A M S


What to do, what to do???

There are better exhausts out there that won't burn a hole in your pocket. I would stay away from Jardine like the plague. I say go Arrow; looks and performance.

LeoVince Exhaust

Out of the two options suggested I would personally opt for the LeoVince exhaust.

I'm one of the few that likes Jardine over Leo. I think the Leo sounds very very passive.

Jardine RT-1 FTW!!

First of all, I think I was able to find the last Jardine RT-1 slip on, on the face of planet earth.... Evert company I called told me they were on a national back order until July 15th, the reason is b/c Jardine is in the process of moving their plant to Ohio. I just happen to be checking Motorcycle Super Store on Sunday night, checked their exhausts and it said they had the RT-1 (carbon fiber dual outlet muffler) in stock....

Well, I called them up Monday around 3pm to verifiy this and the CSR told me they had it..... I had a heart attack as I have been looking for this exhaust since April. I bought it right on the spot for a tune of $565 :(

I could not beleive, the package arrived at my Tuesday!!! (the very next day). But of curse I wasn't home to receive the package so I got it first thing today!!!

Here are some pics!!!!
