Jardine slip ons Yamaha xvs650

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by philmydang, Aug 19, 2010.

  1. Trying to install a set of Jardine exhaust for my brothers yamaha 650 custom. I find the term 'slip on' to be abit of a cruel joke as i've been straining for hours and going blue in the face trying to 'slip' these babies on. Anyone had the same troubles with these? Still wondering if i should start filing/cutting to make them fit.

  2. If you get desperate you could cut a couple of slots in the pipe(on the bike) and that'll let it close up a little, they'll be hidden by the new exhaust. Better than cutting the Jardine.
  3. Odd i swapped out my V&H Short Shots for the Jardines and I don't remember having any issues at all, took less then an hour.

  4. Well i eventually got them on by making some slices on the existing pipe, although the fit isn't as flush as yours - why did you swap the V&H's for Jardines anyway?
