It does have an actual bracket with a hole for each hanger, but the one hole doesn't line up with anything on my bike.
One hole the bolt goes through and mounts to the bike. The other hole just carries the second strap.


Okay I was wondering about that but disn't see much point, so I just mounted the one. You figure the second one is really necessary?
For what it's worth, I only mounted one. Kept trying to move the muffler around, but it seemed pretty solid so I left it with one. I guess I will be the guinea pig again :s_crazy

I think that there is a lot of vibrational loading back there which has a lot of potential load to the header junction. The strap mount was the first thing to degrade on my FMF and may have caused or contributed to the eventual fatigue of the mid pipe. The Leo Vince has the additional flex joint where the mid pipe meets the can which, in my estimation, is a better design. I recoment using both clamps. Use soap or other rubber lubricant to make it not so difficult to fit and align. These are great pipes from what I have experianced! The Leo Vince is just a pound or two more than the FMF and adds maintainence free internals, heavier guage stainless steel and better design. I foresee long and trouble free use from mine!

I'm guinea-pigging with you. Only mounted one strap on mine, and no issues so far.

I ended up installing the other strap.

So far I like the Leo Vince muffler and Powerbomb header. I installed the short baffle with spark arrestor the other day and I really like it. The noise is actually quite reasonable at sustained RPM or gradual roll-ons, but she does have a nice bark when you whack the throttle.

Only issue I'm having so far is a crazy amount of popping. The TM40 idle mixture screw is 3 turns out, so I'm guessing it's not running lean?

Anyone else getting excessive popping?

Other than trying to drown it out with a rich pilot circuit setting the normal high vacuum conditions that create decel popping can be lessened by making sure you have your idle speed set properly. The lower your idle speed the higher the vacuum rises during deceleration.

Try cracking your throttle just a wee bit as you decelerate, 3 turns out is a bit much, most end up around 1.25 to 2 turns out.

Raising the idle speed can help minimize the popping. Also, teaching you hand to roll off the throttle instead of 'chopping' it will make a difference.

After having this exhaust for a while now, I just want to say I love it! The quietest insert really sounds awesome, and never have to worry about repacking! What a bonus, and no regrets about the cost :drinks:
