Yes, i´m driving the Maxxis M6118/19. Intermediate Rain Tyres. They´re awesome, unbelievable grip! Very good tyres for sport-riding!!!

@Aphex: Do you have into Sweden to the laws to pay attention or may you the exhaust to drive as you want?

The Loevince has 3 (or 4 ?) different employments. Short = loud, long = “quietly” = legally in Germany

Regards, Jörg

Yes we have a law, to many in Sweden :evil: No more than 103 decibel is allowed when going to the testcenter wich must be done every second year. My registration papers says 82 db when standing still and 79 db when running it. By law I don´t think it´s legal to exceed this numbers because the bike is typed with it. But If you don´t exceed the highest db level they probably don´t care about it at the testcenter. The police may have opinions about it, but they have better things to do than catching loud bikes :wink:
But it´s very good that the Leo:s comes with so many different "db killers" :top:

Has forgot to ask the most decent question. Do you really notice more power when changing only the exhaust. Are the bike running more smooth and do you really feel more torque on lower rpm and so on?

I think you will have about 3% more Power and don`t forget you lost weight, it is better for the handling. With the exhaust i install a 14 cog-wheel.
Live and let die.

Ok! Is 13 original? Sometimes I feel that the bike should hava a 6 speed gearbox instead. I have many times being unsecure if i really running on 5th gear on highway roads.

No, 15 is original. I drive a 14/46 combination. You have much more acceleration but a little less highspeed. But who wants to have highspeed with this bike?? Acceleration is what i need and with the 14/46 you can drift in first and 2nd gear!! THIS is fun!!! :wink: 8)

Faster than 130 km/h is not so fun with this bike. Especially not with a motox helmet :lol: Is it possible to pull the bike up with just the throttle using a 14 sprocket? Now I must use the clutch to do a wheelie on 2nd gear :roll:

Why not? If the exhaust unit does have a european permit, it must be possible to install it legally to the bike in any state which is part of the european union. And Sweden is, even if it still has its "Monopoly-Money".... ;-)

You have not meet a swedish grumpy old carinspector I hear :wink: Just joking, that are perhaps true! I suppose we have the same rules about it? By the way I like Swedish kronor :lol:

Well, maybe, I liked the Deutsche Mark as well.
But since we have the Euro I don't travel to european countries that don't have it.
It's quiet simple to change countries without changing the money. That's the reason because of that I travel to France, Spain and Italy instead of Switzerland and Great Britain (both very interesting countries).
Denmark and Sweden might be really interesting destinations but.....

By the way: Norway is first of all an uninteresting destination because of its traffic-fines.....

With best regards

Totally agree about that! Very simple to have the same when you travel or make business. Norway is a very expensive but beautiful country. Too bad, because I would love taking a trip with the bike there.
I´ve being to Germany twice with my job. First I went to Göppingen near Stuttgart. And then to Hamburg when my company (Scania trucks) where buying some new CNC-machines. :zustimm:

Think I should switch sprockets then :wink: I´m not so good doing wheelies yet, but I begin to learn myself more and more.

Don't you have wheelie workshops over there? Here is what I mean:

I registered myself and will do the course in September.

Here are more sophisticated and more expensive workshops that takes a few days:
