    Question for LeoVince owners

    If you've fitted a LeoVince aftermarket exhaust, has it improved fuel economy?

    If yes, by how much?

    The reason I ask is that I'm doing about 15k miles per year and if it saves me 5mpg it'll pay for itself in no time. I'm not bothered by looks or sound, just money.

    Yes, immediately mpg started to rise from 41/42 to 54/56, within a few dozen miles riding exactly the same on the same roads, with DB killer removed, noise is great too with crackles and pops.

    I've just ordered one through my local Honda dealer, so I'm looking forward to the improved economy and extra noise!

    Very interesting, can you update your experiences when you get your new exhausts? I would buy one too if there is such a big mpg benefit..
    Thanks.

    Sorry mondeoman,
    I'm struggling with your post!
    Are you saying that after fitting an aftermarket exhaust your fuel economy improved ( after a few tankfuls)from 41mpg to 54mpg??? an improvement of 33%... :087:
    or are you saying that the dash readout (that's constantly changing with your riding style) leaped in its calculation by 33% a few miles down the road after fitting.
    Its misleading to post such magnificent gains without proper comparisons over a period of time .
    Safe riding
    Tom
