New Leo Full system and Cams Degreed

Finally got around to doin the Gen 3 race cam swap. Had plenty of conversations with Shannon Sanders about his setup as He had done alot of research on the best degrees for the cams. He had s similar setup w/ a full system, 0.050 head gasket, and was cool enought to send me a map for the set up too. (rep will definitely be sent Shannon, thanx!)

Had to score a full exhaust and as many of you know ebay has Leo Vince full systems cheap. I had a oval slip on before and was pleased, but often thought it was too long and wanted to chop it. keeping this in mind and that the last titanium was sold I decided to gamble and go w/ the Full Leo "BIG" Factory hoping it wasn't so damn long.

Well, needless to say I am damn happy on degreeing my cams at 110 in./108 ex. as recommended by Shannon, and the Leo is sweet! The bike pulls hard straight to 12k, throttle response kicks ass. The Leo is perfect length (14.5" canister, 19" total length) w/o requiring a chop, and it came w/ a carbon bracket. After breakin it in for 500 miles i'm lovin it and it sound grrrreat!

Here's pics of the dyno run Shonnon supplied me, and pics of the Leo system on the bike:

For sure, I don't think Shannon would mind me hookin anyone up w/ the map if they do this setup, and they are at sea level. If you need it let me know.

no other headwork, really shoulda decked the head, but not yet. I did replace all 16 retainers w/ the upgraded part as many users have discovered issues w/ the stock ones even w/ stock set ups.

damn, looks like if you pulled the rev limiter on it, it would keep pulling more power. Didnt look like it wanted to sign off much and that torque is reeeeally flat, must be an awesome ride!!!

You did the same mods as Shannons? Gen 3 Race Cams on both sides?

Saaaweeet!!!!

That exhaust looks awesome...

Bike must be a blast to ride with 80 ft lbs of torque...

Would love to know if that exhaust would fit the GEN III!

Gen I exhaust seem so much nicer and not nearly as long as the crap on the GEN III...

Best looking are the Arata, Akro Evo and Yosh RS55 Carbon on the GEN III in my humble opinion...

Great looking bike dude!

why not do a solo seat cowl since you dont have the pass. pegs?

Florida has a poor job market! :headshake

That is pretty awesome man.

like said, she keeps pulling all the way to red line.

maybe you should change your valve springs, and raise the limiter, could squeeze a couple more hp outta there.

BTW, i love the exhaust and the bracket, but to this day i still dont understand how come manufacturers dont make the exhaust angle the same than the tail, it would look just that much better.
