I've narrowed down my slip on choice to the arrows or leo vince's. Has anyone had any problems when exhaust leaks around the mid pipe ends?

From the pics I've seen it looks like the arrow's mid pipe is attached to the silencer and only slips on to the headers? Where as the leo has springs on both ends of its mid pipe?

I had a really bad experience with a M4 exhaust on my sv650 where it was leaking all over both ends of the mid pipe (used springs). I swapped that for a 2 bros with the vale attachment they have and that was solid as a rock.

The 4 bikes before the sv all had oem exhausts :( so I have little experience with aftermarket exhaust's.

Thanks in advance.

My Leos leak a bit at the mid-pipe. Some cleaning solvent and five minutes of elbow grease = no problem.

never noticed any leaks but never worried about it either

Troy Boy, do those carbon heat shields come on the Leo slipons? I thought just the high mounts?

My Leos don't leak. My M4s on another bike don't leak either.

they only come with the high mounts. I ordered a universal set from leo. Not sure if they carry them any longer though. check with your shop!

just a quick google search......they come in 2 different lengths
