Look what the man in the big brown truck dropped off
Got a delivery late last night, after 7pm. Cannot wait to get this on my V and hear what she sounds like. One question, does anyone know what is the little round disk with the 5 holes in it? Im assuming it goes in front of the inlet pipe cause thats the only place it fits. Looks like some sort of baffle?

I wasn't going to bother but then my curiosity got the best of me so I pulled mine off because I didn't remember a baffle disc like you have there. Sure enough, nothing there. I would say to leave it out, just mount the silencer as built. In fact, I'm going to drill a few 1/4" holes in the baffle plate on mine:
EDIT: I ended up drilling one 3/8" hold in the center of the first baffle. Remounted it. Didn't really make any difference but will flow just a tiny bit more. Dismounting and remounting is a PITA. It's a tight fit!

Thanks for sharing...I ordered one from www.surfsidemoto.com for my 2011 Versys. Good low end growl...but not overbearing. I'm sure you already know...but for others that may be interested...I could be wrong...but I think that's a baffle...their website indicates "Many LeoVince exhaust systems include a removable E-approved baffle that let's you stay quiet on the street, but is easy to remove for track day use."
