Got my Leo Vince Factory Carbon pipe on :)

Well, she's back together already. Lowers aren't on so I didn't snap pictures of the whole bike, plus it needs to be washed. I'll get better pictures tonight, but I was so excited I had to snap these as soon as I got the tail back on.

Sucker sounds meeeeeeeeeeean. :D







The can still looks a little crooked to me so I'm going to tweak it some more, but all in all I'm very pleased with the outcome.

Looks nice. Gotta have that Astars logo eh?

When you take pics of the bike once it's washed, go ahead and include pics of yourself too.

Better yet...take pics of yourself washing the bike, wearing a white shirt please :)

All of my friends make fun of me because I put Astars stickers on EVERYTHING. My car, my bathroom mirror, my helmets, my bikes, my computer... they're everywhere :D

Nice job Schwing! I haven't seen a CF support bracket like that one before. Looks cool! But I think you got the bracket on backwards cause the CF weave is opposite from the can's finish.

Wait till you get a few thousand miles on it and see what the pipe sounds like then. The Leo is THE pipe to have for this bike.

Oh yeah huh!

I should have gotten that pipe instead of the Jardine.. Damn good choice.

I looked at that bracket too, and mentioned to my ex, and he said nope, it goes on that way...

I probably shouldn't listen to him that, the weave was bugging me too!!! ;)

I don't think the bracket is directional. You have to loosen everything to straighten the pipe anyway. See if you can turn it around. It would look really cool if it disappeared into the weave and looked invisible.

My bike is at my ex's house and my car is in the shop, so the next time I get over there, I'll take it apart and check it out.

He doesn't have the key, doesn't have his motorcycle license, and knows I would beat some ass if it was moved.

He can't afford to get caught on the street with my bike, he's got racing contracts stating he can't ride on the street :)

wait, the motorcycle racing sponsors don't allow their racers to ride on the street? I guess it's a safety thing?


Or wait...racing contracts? Motorcycle racing? or something else?

He has contracts with his Dad and I guess a couple other sponsors that he is NOT to ride on the street.

Yes, motorcycle racing. He's an AMA pro.

It's a slip on, I can't affort a full system right now. No power commander. That's like 10 mods down on the list :)

I love the leo on this bike, has a sweet growling sound to it. After about 1,000 miles it'll really start to open up.
