The lads at Leo Vince contacted me at the last minute to inform me they were working on exhaust prototypes for the V Star, and would I be interested. Would I! The Silvertail BlackJack 2-into-1 system arrived promptly the following week, and an hour after unpacking each individually-wrapped piece, mechanic Chris Vandevoort at CycleTune PDX had them installed on the V Star. Man, was I pleasantly surprised: right at start-up, the pipes let out a nice deep tone without the obnoxious, higher-pitch bark of a straight pipe, (thanks to a dB killer inside). Leo Vince marketing materials say these pipes "aim expressly for elegance", and I can believe it, looking at the clean, stainless steel manifolds and body.
