Go ahead and price other systems, you'd think their mfg's think their stuff is made of gold. I paid $540 shipped for this product and it drastically out-values the other $800-1000 slipons sold by (Two) Tool-Brothers and other European mfg's. It has a very nice growl without being too loud, though I'll admit I wish it was a bit louder. The V4 engine is meant to be heard, it is so sweet sounding. Especially now that it has this slip-on. The slip-on even came with low decibal sound inserts, which I quickly removed because they make it sound like a muffled moped, or exactly like the stock mufflers.
The draw back to this product are the terrible instructions. You might as well just throw the instructions away. Yes they are that bad. I cannot believe Leo Vince USA would sell such a nice product with the instructions or lack thereof. That aspect of the product shouldn't be tolerated. There is no reason for this product to be this nice yet have instructions with no pictures and only a few sentences that try to explain how to put together a 20 piece system! Horrid. Shame on you Leo Vince. And shame on Revzilla for not even caring and allowing them to be sold with those instructions.
One other item of note: make sure you lube the connector pieces with WD40 or whatever in order to get them to slip-on and be able to move them around. Having a second hand is very helpful so that person can assist in holding the can and strap in place when you are ready to tighten it down to the correct position.
Yes, I recommend this product.
