Jardine Carbon Fiber Exhaust Deteriorating

I currently own an 07' Daytona675 with a Jardine RT-1 exhaust.

The pipe has lost its glossy look and the carbon fiber seems somewhat exposed from the wear and tear. The stock stamp(?) screws (correct word escapes me....) were replaced with allen wrench nuts so I can now assume that the original connectors that use to be there fell off from the wear and tear I'm assuming. The new nuts keep coming off due to vibration even with locking washers and, as the title mentions, everything seems to be falling apart on it.

Bottomline: I'm thinking of buying a brand new replacement Jardine pipe, but will I experience this same issue of wear and tear and having to replace?? Or is Titanium the way to go?

Does this usually happen to carbon fiber exhaust pipes or is there a coating you can apply at a certain period of its life?


Thanks for the Help in Advance!
-Any input on this is much appreciated

Personally I try and avoid c/f exhausts because the few I have had have either cracked, split or faded. Then again I do ride my bikes fairly hard and figured maybe they just weren't up to the punishment.

Same's happening with mine. I'll be going with some sort of metal exhaust next time. The carbon gets cooked...

^ Thats really odd.... I have a full CF can on my TBR and no fading or cooking issues whatsoever. Hmm....

To the OP, I think the right word you were looking for was "Allen screw".

Personally I avoid brands like TBR, Jardine, and Micron just because this type of thing seems to happen. I've never been displeased with any Yoshimura pipe I've ever purchased. I'd recommend going with a brand that has a better reputation for quality. Sato, Yosh, Staintune, Mori, etc. are likely to give you far more satisfaction in the long run. That's my 2 cents, at any rate.

I have some fading and what looks like baked carbon on my Jardine as well, I'm probably gonna go with competition werks on my next slip on when my Jardine is done for...Sucks because the Jardine is one of the best looking in my opinion.

I've had a few of the original screws back out half way in my Jardine. I've just retightened them when I see them coming out. I noticed one day just on my bike walk around checking all the cables and bolts and such. :P
It's slightly faded too but still looks good. Maybe I just need to scrub her down a bit more haha..

I'm probably going to grab a Leo Vince full system or another in the future. After I do suspension and some plenty other mods on her first.

mine has faded to a dull, but in no way is it exposing the carbon fiber from wear and tear. The 4 nuts that hold the end cap on have rusted, but I've never had any other problems with mine
