LeoVince SBK Underbody

can anybody explain to me why Leovince says this muffler is NOT compatible with the stock turn signal location (as the leo site says)?? i find this completely puzzling as the muffler is an underbody model and nowhere near the turn signals...will the hot exhaust melt the right side signal or what?

currently "in the market" for a new muffler as i'm changing the rear sprocket to a supersprox with 44t....woo hoo....wheel will be off making the muffler change a snap...any advice will be

I have it on my 2011 with no "issues" involving the turn signals. I'm guessing a typo??

might be Italglish translation.
maybe the full kit with headers might not fit a full faring Ninja 650 - but I doubt that as well.

I have one on order... and others have got it and installed it without THAT issue.

Just do It!

MaverickAus's seat

MaverickAus. Is that a custom lowered seat you got on your ride, like a Sargent?

Nope, it's a genuine Kawasaki product. This is the australian site but I'm sure you have them in the states.

I really like the low profile of the LV. That thing is tucked back in there. Does anyone have a video of how it sounds with and without the DB killer?

do a google... I found about 5 reputable online USA stores that will do it for USD$433 - they have to be ordered in. but still cheaper than USD$490 + $40 shipping.

i have that exhaust on my bike as well. One thing I would like to add is that if you plan on adding the SW-MOTECH Aluminum Engine Guard/Skidplate it does not sit correctly due to the springs that help hold the muffler to the manifold. I tried to turn it but the spring are not long enough. i guess you could get larger springs but I just left it as it. Someting to think about
