  • Jardine GP1's for K7 GSX-R1000 - Opinions Please...

    Hi guys,

    I am thinking of upgrading to a GSX-R1000 K8 and would like to get the Jardine GP1's at the same time but probably with the silencer inserts.... Does anyone have the K7 with the pipes on? Question is how loud are these pipes really... Also if you work around West Perth or leave around Beeliar/Jandakot area I would like to hear what they sound like personally if possible...

      If it's anything like the Jardine system on daytona it will be LOUD AND THROATY!!!

      All kits have self install instructions. Easy enough and a good project for doing at home.

        Jardine pipes do sound very nice and raspy.

          Here's a few pics of one I saw at Witch Cycles a couple of months ago.They looked great and sounded verrry crisp.They were fairly loud when you got them on the pipe,but if you tootled then they were quite OK.

                Got em on my black K7, no inserts, very loud and sound the ducks nuts! Potential to attract a lot of unwanted attention if doing silly stuff where you shouldn't be doing silly stuff!

                got pulled over a while back for slight speeding infringement on Roe and he said nothing except how nice they looked...

                  Potential to attract a lot of unwanted attention is what I am worried about, hence getting them with silencers may help reduce that effect..

                    They do sound nice and raspy, as mentioned, but I hear only girly-men put the silencer back in

                      What the... How rude...

                      Can the silencer be removed and replaced as you wish?? That would be kinda convenient!!!

                        Haha, nah, don't worry mate, just having a bit of a go at another bloke on the forum with the same bike and pipes, that decided to chuck the silencer bit back in to keep his neighbours from getting annoyed

                        Yeah, IIRC, you're able to put them in and out as you please.

                          That was a quick response mate... Good news. Main reason for these pipes is the looks not so much the sound. Original pipes are just bloody huge and ugly....

                          I've seen these pipes in black on YouTube but was told that they only come in raw aluminium... Wonder what would be a good way of changing the colour to black. Was told high heat paint would work but would need to be repainted every 2-3 months as it would peel which is no good...

                          Any ideas....

                              Maybe. I know the powdercoat can be affected by the UV and salts but what it is like with high heat no idea... Hmmmmm, will have to look into that???

                              Cheers...
