Leo Vince slip on?

Ok I am about to make my decision on an exhaust. What does everyone think about a Leo Vince slip on for the 03 R1?

I've heard what the Micron sounds like and it sounds good, but it's a little more than what I want to spend for a slip on.
I found a Leo Vince for $266.95 from www.indysuperbikes.com
I can't find it that cheap anywhere.

Micron's are too big IMO. Leo's sounds god IMO. You should get GYT-R, or at least look into them. They are made by Graves.

I tried to listen to it here, but it just doesn't do justice. You can listen to the dyno run, and sound test for each. http://www.sportrider.com/tech/146_0410_pipe_clips/

They are all loud. I don't think the GYTR is to loud IMO. Its up to you to decide.

Yeah I guess that's what it comes down to. Yami's are known for noisy valve chatter, and I hear it on mine. I think the exhaust would cover that up. I already had a yoshi on the SV, so I want to go with something else this time. I just want a nice pipe, not too loud, and not too expensive.

I think I found the cheapest place I can find the Leo at $266. and everywhere else I look its $350ish+

I'm also needing a new rear tire soon, and looking for a 2 pc leather suit. I already ordered the Puig double bubble screen.....so I need to watch my budget a little.

no, I check out their site and all I could see there was the full exhaust and no slip ons. Also I check every place I could online and they were all priced about $350-$400+ range.
I thought it was a misprint or something, but I called indysuperbike and it was no misprint.
