Default I took 8inches off my Jardine slip on

I took 8inches off my Jardine slip on. I was in my garage working on it for 2.5 hours. It came out great. I got the bike all polished up. I couldnt wait to get out and take it for a test ride. I open the garage door..........and its raining AAAAAAAAHhhhh. It stopped for now. Long enough for me to snap a picture. Hopefully it doesnt start back up so I can take it out tonight for a cruise.

I went for a ride and I love the sound it makes. Its a lot deeper sound than it was and the throttle feels a bit crisper. It really does sound mean. Ill try to make a video tomorrow.

Nice. They look so much better than the regular sized ones. I did the same to the SS Yosh Tri-Oval I have on mine. It did get louder and with a deeper tone.

I actually wanted to cut my sticker off. It was faded really bad. Even if it wasnt faded, a red and black sticker wouldnt look too good on a green bike.

I know. Its so easy to do it yourself though. If you have any experience using a drill, rivet gun and something that will cut it. Its a piece of cake . I used a hacksaw and since aluminum is so soft I cleaned up the edge with 80 grit sandpaper. Then smoothed it out some more with 180grit and then some 400 grit. It looks like it was made that way. Im not sure with carbon fiber. I haven't worked with it much. You may have to take a small paint brush and wipe a bit of resin on the edge where you cut it to keep the fibers from fraying.
