Ok. I just bought and installed the Jardine GP1.

Cheap and easy.

The sound is very loud, but it is a toned loud, so it sounds great imho.

I definitely recommend this exhaust for a small budget or temporary to get rid of the big ugly K8 exhaust.


I installed this until I can decide on a full system and can commit to the full system and power commander.

Your are right it is a very nice cheap and effective way to get rid of that nasty muffler they stuck on the 08/09. It is a much better sound then most Slash Cut Mega Phone style S/O. I too have a K8600 but I hacked my cat off and put on the 06/07 GP1..I dont see the need to buy a full system if you are a street rider like me...

How much of an issue is it to cut off the cat? and is the 06/07 Jardine as loud as "slip-on" on the cat for the 08/09?

It was a piece of cake with the right tools. I used a SawZaw to cut the pipe right on the weld of the cat and the pipe. It's just alittle past the SET Vavle. Once that was done. I grinded it smooth. (cleaned up the cut). I then placed Muffler Sealant ( like less than $5 at a parts store) on the S/O and the pipe. It slipped on perfect and mounted just fine.
As far as what it sounds like, I could only tell you it sounds the same as it does when it is on a 06/07. Go to youtube and do a search. I am sure you will find both for 06/07 and 08/09

I also have this exhaust for my k7. It is loud but comes with an optional "silencer" which I have never used. It is not too loud for me but some people I ride with do not like to ride on my right and behind me.

If the slash cut sounds just like it does on the 06/07, that's extra loud. I had a hotbodies slash cut on my 07 and I had to take it off after about a month. My ears were about to fall off...

did you try putting the "silencer" in before you removed it? It comes with a optional silencer, never used it, its not that loud with helmet on.

I also installed it on my k9 750. love the sound and sheer look of it. But the only thing that I didn't like was that they put a heat shield around the cat unlike the k8 .so I had to cut part of the heat shield off so the bracket that mounts on to the rear set didn't interfere. but other than that. Awesome:thumbup:
