Disappointed with Jardine's...

I find it hard to believe that I don't see any complaints about how badly the Jardine Roadster exhaust looks and fits. The armadillo style chrome plates are a real pain to install and once on, look like crap when standing close to the bike. Nothing like a $1300 exhaust that has cheesy pipe clamps sticking out all over the place. I know performace exhausts are hard to come by for the Roadster but I'd suggest that if you care about how your bike looks, you examine a Jardine exhaust up close and personal before buying one. They do look good from about 10 ft away.

Agreed. Not well made. Not much out there, though, especially for a touring.

Are they different from the original Rumblers?

Sorry to say I'm not sure what a Rumbler is.

Mine are a full system, I'm thinking the Rumblers were slipons?

The Rumblers were just the
model of the full system for the Rocket. I know that some people had a hard time installing them but they looked pretty good. That's why I asked if the newer ones were different.

They still advertise them as Rumblers. They look the same except the fit is different around the mid controls.

I just picked up a set of used jardine ramblers I would agree they are not the best looking or best fitting systems.

If I had paid the full price instead of 200 bucks I would be very very disappointed
I will say they are loud very loud.

If you can get a good tune on those babies, your $200 will have been well spent.

I didn't particularly like the Jardines after they left the header.
I still like the look of the Predator header best of all,
but that's neither here nor there.
I modified the Jardines a little bit.
Here's a pic of what they look like now.

2.5" open and they "rumble" a little bit now...
