opinions on Scorpion vs. Leos

Thinking of exhaust:
I know this is beaten to death but, what do you think? I don't want to spend over about $500.

I cannot say anything about the Leo's except that people who have them seem very happy.

On the other hand I am very happy with the Scorpions I have. Stainless and they do not have to be repacked, or so they say. As for the sound well I thought they were a bit loud at first but I have grown to LOVE them. Nothing like the twin growel. The price is right too at $465.

PS -- i don't spell or grammar check in most cases, but props if you can use my quick typing to debunk the factual foundation of my arguments!!

They are BOTH great exhausts....can't really go wrong. I almost got the Scorpions, but I hate polished stainless. I also like the baffles in or out option in the Leo's. As far as packing goes....Leo Vince uses top of the line ceramic packing materials, which should last a good long time. Scorpions claim to NEVER need a repack, and they have a nice deep mellow tone. Repacking is not difficult, and isn't very expensive. I like the looks and sound of the Leo Vince cans better. IMHO.... Just flip a coin!!!!!! :wink:

If you want the Scorpions...Pipecity is probably the best deal.

Loved my Scorpions.... My S/O who now rides my DL1000 prefers the Drilled out stock sound over the Scorpions...

So the Scorpions went away
