The entire system comes complete with spark arestor insert, muffler plug, sound inserts, and a spring tool

KEY FEATURES:
-Made from CP1 grade-four titanium with a 1mm sidewall
-End cap, muffler hanger, and heat shield are made from Leo Vince's own carbon fiber
-Durapaq packing is inside the muffler, and is claimed to last up to 50 hours without repacking
-Designed to boost power throughout the powerband
-Comes with a spark arrestor insert, sound inserts, a spring tool, and muffler plug

WHAT WE LIKED:
-Power is noticeably increased
-Low-end hit is increased
-Top-end pull is stronger with the system. Down long straights, the bike revved out and pulled very far
-Has a quieter exhaust note due to being made to conform to Europe's tighter sound regulations
-Mounted right up to our test bike without any problems
-Gave the CRF450R one of the best power gains we've ever experienced

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE:
-Price is probably a bit steep for some riders

WHAT WE REALLY THINK:
When it comes to motocross exhaust systems, Leo Vince probably isn't the first company to come to mind. With that said, though, this system is not only one of the best made systems out there, but also one of the best performing. We've put in quite a few motos on it as well and haven't had any major problems. Even if the price scares you away, Leo Vince also makes a stainless steel version of this system that they claim produces the same power gains and costs much less.
