Cart before the horse here, because I don't have the bike yet, but...research...

I've had good experience with LeoVince slip-ons on other bikes, including a BMW with catalytic converter. By good experience, I mean at least some improvement in sound and appreciable loss of weight. I gather that on the Multistrada, much of the "muffling" happens in the catcon/resonator box, and the end-pipes are largely cosmetic.

If that is taken as true (opinions welcome), I wondered if anyone had experience with LeoVince slip-ons on the Multi. I would guess that since they wouldn't come from the dealer, there is potentially a warranty issue, yes? Would a slip-on require or benefit from any tuning?

Thanks much!

No need to remap if you just have a slip on going on the existing catylitic converter , if you decat then yes you should have a retune .

To me, the sound is much better with a slip on and no cat. I went with the Mivv setup and it sounds much deeper to me than stock with cat. I have DB killers in both head pipes and removed the DB killer in the slip on.

I'm a fan of arrow exhaust, if you go for a slip on imho that's the brand I would go for, it opens up the sinus right up!

I haven't bit the bullet and bought a exhuast yet, But from what ive seen and heard it doesn't see like a Slip On would do much if you dont decat?

The Stock Mufflers dont really have much to them at all, they are basically straight pipes? No Baffle or anything (that i see).

Seems like the cost of a slip on is almost 2/3 the cost of a full system? Seems to me the best bet is to just go full system...

I was thinking of going for the SC Project oval which i see only for about $800..

If you are dead set on a slip-on, as soon as you get your bike pull the stock exhaust tip off the cat and start the bike. Make a mental note regarding the change in sound and then go buy the best looking slip-on you can afford. I had a Remus slip-on on my 2011 for a while, I picked it up cheap on ebay and I liked the way it looked. It made no difference in the sound or performance.

Be aware that SC project exhausts are ridiculously loud, never had one but heard feedbacks from people that do, also try to find one that has a removable db killer just in case.
$.02!

Well, I like LeoV in general, but I have been persuaded to save my pennies for the Termi full system.

Many pennies.
