whos got the leovince 2012 specefic exhaust on their 12 wee?

i ordered the carbon one, it's a full exhaust cause they do not offer slip-ons. with the pictures available, all the clearences look OK for the adventure accessories, side cases look super limit for clearences and bottom oem engine guard seems ok. i ordered the exhaust with an bmc air filter cause i feel the engine aint breathing right and the motor works hard to eliminate it's gases. the motor is smooth but when accelerating hard and fast the engine feels restricted. we will see if it operates freely after the instalation. i had a 2005 sv1000s and whwn i put on 2 slip-ons it made a big difference in smoother and freer acceleration. so who's got it on their bike and what are your experience and opinions on the exhaust. and please post pictures if possible. thank you.

Please post some pics of the install before and after.

And a soundclip before and after would be awesome!

Looking forward to hearing how it goes.

Yes if you will how much $$$ and where did you source it?
desperately seeking a sound clip as well.

I don't mind the going and I don't mind the stopping. I absolutely hate the stop and going.

it cost me 830.00 shipped from bayside motorsports. from canada to canada. i got a bmc filter as well. for the weight loss i would say a good 5 pounds. pulls much harder at higher revs.
