I wonder if most other brands are seeing that big of a difference between just the slip on vs full system. Full Akrapovic here I come!

Almost certainly so. Generally speaking, slip-ons are for improving the sound and lowering the weight more than they're for improving performance.

Performance can be improved more substantially by changing what comes before the silencer, in particular by eliminating the catalytic converter and replacing it with a straight-through pipe or (common for LeoVince) a small resonator... assuming it's legal to do so. :plain:

Edit: The stock silencer weighs a little over 9 pounds (4 kg), so there's plenty of weight-saving opportunity.
