Exhaust experiment

I have an inkling about how this will be received, but here goes...

I'm curious if anyone has adapted a non-Jardine can to a 2-1 Jardine system?
I have a full Jardine 2-1 but the polished aluminum set against my 05 paint
scheme is a complete eyesore.

I would like to go to a C/F can. If the 2-1 is a mediocre performer, is it really
that unfeasible to adapt a (traditionally dual) Sato or other brand of can to
the existing header?

I'm due for an expensive upgrade but that will be an Ohlins rear
shock. I think that would be wiser and far cheaper and the exhaust.

Thoughts, ideas, bitches, gripes or complaints are solicited...

tons of people have done exactly this with any number of different canisters. you may require an adapter sleeve to adapt the outlet pipe size of the jardine to the inlet size of the can


I will say however that a carbon can on a 2-1 system isn't the best idea. the 51 exhaust pulses are very strong and tend to murder carbon cans, especially on 2-1 setups

I didn't think of the durability of the C/F. I suppose a Ti can would
accomplish what I want to do. Any idea what this would do with
regards to power/torque?

P.S. Wibbly, your bike is absolutely jaw dropping. I was ogling it
just yesterday.

the can will have negligeable effect really. unless you put something that chokes it completely

I'd try to stick to titanium if I were you. see if simonkobe will sell you one of the new trioval ladybird silencers

What is the Jardine mid pipe diameter size...? i may have a decent condition Yosh RS-3 can in stainless that maybe would work.
The mids for Yosh slip-ons are 57mm.

Thx for the offer Drew. I'll check when I get home. Still not sure what I want to do though.

ogiehooker ... that bike is amazing! I've been all over simon's store and my eyes outweigh my
pocketbook. The Army doesn't pay well enough for a shock AND beautiful Japanese Ti art in the
same few months. You guys are a bad influence.
