Jardine exhaust

As requested: photos of new Jardine fitted to my 2010 V. Videos are here:

and















Hi all,

I have just installed a Jardine GP1 on my 2010 V........may I say holy shizen it is loud.

I have had many bikes with loud exhausts but the Jardine on this model V is sublime. I will give it a couple of days sans the 'baffle' as I ride to work through a tunnel and want to hear THAT sound. But I will install the baffle so I don't get hassled by the 'man'.

The only issue is the Jardine doesn't have an O2 sensor so I have to install an O2 sensor Eliminator - no biggy, eBay is my friend.

I have also installed a Gi Pro DS gear indicator and PAZZO shorty levers. And the Scorpio i900 alarm system is simply awesome. It actually stopped someone trying to move my bike at a shopping centre....!

NOW I am happy........for now. There must be more FARKLE out there for the 2010 V, like a tail tidy. Although I have already cut the rear fender down myself.

p.s. I am soooooooo looking forward to my Metallica and Iron Maiden concerts coming up...... \m/

Happy riding, and remember to stay upright.

The first 3 were great, Justice was the start of what _could_ have been a new trend, but Black ended that run. After that it's been garbage.

Now back to Jardine: Pics AND video so we can hear it too!

Good luck with that POS Jardine.
Sorry to rain on your parade. In about a year, if you put any significant
miles on it, you will be complaining that it's vibrating, and raspy sounding.
That means it's time to rebuilt it.
