I'm thinking of replacing the standard cans on a 696 with the Leo Vince Aluminium cans. I've read that this can cause problems, make the bike run lean, and that quite a bit of fettling is needed. Anyone got any advice or experience?
there's a few people on there who've changed exhausts
Generally no matter what Leo Vince say it will affect the fueling. You can get the ECU mapped or fit a power commander and get that mapped to suit the cans. Any "chips" or maps that are installed without use of air fuel monitoring on a dyno arent worth squat as no two bikes fuel the same - have had plenty on the dyno to be checked after thats been done on various bikes and all required fueling changes.
When I have them fitted ill get it dynod too. The reason to fit is they look and sound better and the louder and more obvious I am the less likely it is for people to miss me. Maybe. Maybe not.
I've a leo vinci (yes that is what's written on it) on my carbed CBR6. It's a shit load lighter than the oe, looks very nice & isn't actually that loud unless you're right up the rev range. Nice quality piece of kit IMO.
Thanks for the advice though, I'm going to research and get on it today.
