Jardine slashcuts/pics and info!

Just installed my new Jardine slashcut 2into2 rumbler exhaust.
Bought from denniskirk.com for $283.99. Shipping was only 10 bucks because of the oversize box!! One of the best prices I could find.
This was installed on my 2009 Rebel and the part number is 14-1905-01.

Now on to the specifics:
The picture at the Jardine site shows that there is a chrome bracket that attaches to the lower bolt on the foot peg bracket. It looks kind of cheesy, but they must have changed the design, and it mounts DIRECTLY to the 2 holes on the bracket where the stock muffler was mounted!!! That in turn keeps the rear foot pegs. (I have read many stories about the older design that eliminated the rear foot pegs altogether.
Even though the instructions state you can use the old head gaskets, DO NOT do that! The tubular copper gaskets crush to the pipes that are bolted to them.
And they are very cheap insurance against leaks (my local dealer had them for only $3.10 each), and make sure you use a torque wrench when installing the flange nuts, slowly and equally.
Also make sure that after running for a short time to re-torque the nuts to prevent leaks.
I also heard a lot of pros and cons about re-jetting the carb, shimming the needle, etc.
Not knowing what the outcome would be, I installed a new set of spark plugs so I could monitor the fuel situation. I made no adjustments to the carb and the bike ran smooth from idle to wide open throttle.
I ran the bike for about 25 miles, checked the plugs, ran it again for another 100 miles and checked the plugs again.....nice tan color, very nice!
Also the puke tube and other tubes did NOT have to be relocated or tied up in any way, as I read to much about.
Now for the fun part:
The look is very nice....but the absence of the left pipe looked kind of weird, so I installed some chrome bolts with acorn nuts to fill the holes in the foot peg bracket, which looks about as good as it gets.
The sound is awesome!! Nice low rumble at idle and at part and full throttle, it has what I would call a baby Harley sound, nice but not overpowering.
The sound is much louder with a helmet on than without, but not as loud as some people have reported.
A riding buddy of mine told me it sounded more like an 800cc than a 250!
I also had another Rebel rider ask me where I had the exhaust made....told him I made it in my basement, but then confessed! He really liked the look and moreover the sound.
I am very happy with these pipes, both looks and sound, and even though it may be my imagination, I think there may be a bit of performance increase as well.
Here are the pics....

You have inspired me! I am in Janesville WI and have been looking into Jardine's for my 2009 Rebel 250, but have had second thoughts as I really don't want to go down the route of re-jetting the carbs. I keep reading pros and cons for the 250 with the Jardines but I love the sound. Any other advice? I am new to the mechanics, but have a family full of bikers and am ready and willing to learn as much as possible.

My bike runs great, no popping or missing.
I am talking with Buickguy about a small problem with getting a bit of gold on the pipes at the heads. He is telling me it might be a bit lean, but the spark plugs have a great color so far. When I get this ironed out, I will post my findings and whatever fix (if any) to correct it. It could just be the thinner thickness of the tubing itself, or a small adjustment.

Thanks UltraBlue09. BTW the blue looks sharp with all the chrome I've always loved the way the Jardines sound on the Rebel.

The pipes look good and I have heard them before. They sound quite nice.. Not loud, but with a throaty note that makes it fun to ride.

I have a set of these on my '05 Rebel and love them. They get a bit buzzy on the highway, but are great overall. If anyone knows how to lower the buzz at highway speeds, please let me know. (maybe stuff it full of steel wool, i dunno)
