2088 Buell Lightening
May 31, 2012(Decatur, IL)
I put this on a 2088 Buell Lightening. It was a bit of a challenge as the muffler is under the bike and I have no elevated work station. Since the original muffler carries many of the brackets for the plastic cladding, I had a little more work to do. It would have been helpful had the parts diagram actually been tied to the parts list numbers. Sounds good under power, but pops when coming off the throttle. Too little back pressure?

Easy enough to mount. The spring connectors for the muffler were a pain but worked. My only complaint was that the can had a ding in it right out of the box and of course it was in a spot where it is highly visible. Also the sticker was messed up so I had to use the extra sticker from the box to fix it. I hope it will take the heat. The weight savings is very nice as the original muffler weighs around 15 pounds.

The jardine has an aggressive great sound and powerful performance. It's a good buy.

Bought this for my 2005 Buell XB9R. The install was not as simple as I thought. Not the Jardines fault, but the way the stock muffler was installed. All the brackets fit perfect. The sound of the bike is awesome. Maybe a little loud for me at 4500 rpms but a huge improvement over the factory. Finish looks beautiful under the frame. Took about 2.5 hours to install. Thanx for the great price and service MS. Gave durability a 3 because just installed, but looks like it will last awhile.

For the money you pay this is a very good buy. We received our slip-on (11/24/2010) We open the package to make sure all hardware was in the box (which it was). We install the RT-One Slip On in 10 minutes are less. Everything went on smooth and easy. We started the bike (01'KawaskiZR-7s), SOUNDS GREAT!!!! LOOKS GOOD!!!! It made the bike sound like a GSXR1000. We test road the bike as well, ours will need to be re-jetted. Nothing noticed down low at all, but you will notice in the mid-range area. After we re-jet this bike I will give you a follow up on the dyno!

This exhaust provides an awesome sound for the price. I recently put this exhaust on a 2002 ZX6R. I was riding with my friends who were on an R-1 and a GSXR 1000. They really loved the sound of the bike and both of them went out for test rides around some twisties and said the bike screams now. Don't let the price fool you, this is not a cheap knockoff.

Good deal for money

Sounds great, has a nice low rumble at idle, and a loud scream at WOT...really loud around 7k to the point I wont ride at 7k for long cause its too loud, I’ll shift up or down if on the highway or something. Good price though, install took an hour or so. I got the cheapest finish, carbon looks way better but I just have the aluminum...doesn’t look awesome but I can live with it.

I bought this because my ZX12R was just a little too quiet for me and the stock muffler was just huge. One thing I did not notice when ordering this was any kind of shape description. It is oval which I consider a plus for compactness. My only two problems were 1 the honeycomb catalyst on the end of the pipe. It seems they did not allow enough depth inside the muffler and I will probably trim a little off for a snugger fit (seems to leak a little condensation where joining to the pipe) and 2, It is a little tough to get the bracket that attaches to the passenger footrest on by yourself. I did it but it was a struggle. Still only about a 20 minute job. One last thing to mention. Get the Race baffle. I was not expecting such a great sound out of an almost 3 inch exhaust pipe. It sounds awesome and I seem to have better throttle response.

Went on very easy, and sounds amazing. I installed it with a stage 1 Dyno jet kit and it made a noticeable difference =] ...one thing is if yours comes with a clamp, have someone help you hold it. I did it by myself but it would’ve went on even easier with a 2nd person helping. Took me roughly 20 minutes.
