How long did they take to arrive from order date? I'm still waiting on mine....
From the day it was shipped it only took about a week. I think it was about two weeks for him to build them before they were shipped though.

Finally got the cans!! Not an easy job to fit though. Stock can bolts were seized solid so angle grinder was needed!!

Baffles are out and it sounds awesome. Definite difference to power delivery.

My only criticism of the JC's is the bracket. Not a great fit around the cans, and a real pain to fit into place.

Just ordered a set of these cans yesterday. These are oval with carbon ends, he has just started making tri oval shape, but I decided the oval will be the best choice. Anyway will report back here when I have them on... :D

Seriously thinking of getting a set of these for my SMT, but reading a thread on the ktm forum about someone waiting for their JC exhausts but no contact etc I am slightly concerned.

I think Aitch would have too much to loose to muck us around. I don't think this is a massive factory operation and he doesn't have a "customer services department" :lol:
His number is on my first post so give him a ring and then you decide if this is someone you want to deal with. You won't be disappointed :P

I concur, there are many more happy customers than the odd one who didn't get good service. I'd have had a set myself if only they were kite marked.

Steve

you have no worries placing an order with Aitch, i placed an order for new cans, and bought a set of jc's off someone else advertising here, and he refunded me all the money without hesitation so i could save myself a few nicker, they are good quality and look very good and half the price of akras, its a no brainer!

I live way up in northwestern Canada and I got mine promptly. Took him about a week to build them and then another week for shipping. We emailed back and forth the whole time and the pipes are great. It's worth the money you save, and the sound is amazing.

Just got my JC'S today...can't wait to fit them. Aitch emailed me about a week ago with a tracking number, about 3 weeks all in all from ordering. Overall pretty happy so far...

You sound disappointed. Would you rather have been turned away for being too noisey :?: :P
I still think they're much louder than Akras 8-)

Did snetterton once on my Benelli after having the exhaust repacked as it nearly failed at 101db at Bedford.
After repacking it measured 107db and the limit was 105db at Snetterton. Luckly I knew the measuring rules and as it was a triple I was allowed a lower rev limit, it sneaked in at 104db. It sounds wonderful a 900cc triple on full chat at 12,000 rpm, if a little loud. :D

Fitted my JC's the other day, I have go to say I am impressed with them for the price. Fitting them is not the easiest job as the brackets are a pain to line up and get the thread started, and one of them is not a good snug fit around the can. 2 bolts on my standard pipes were seized and had to take to them with the angle grinder...Anyway overall I am so far very happy with them. :D

I want to save some weight and on http://www.jcexhausts.co.uk/ktmforum.html it seem to be several alternatives. I think that I might get a reply faster here than from the manufacturer himself, emailed him earlier no reply...

I've got a SMT from 2009, has I got a three bolt fitting then? I'm not home at the moment and can't check. If I had I guess I could go with one of the standard cans, they are the cheapest. Would a pair in Standard Carbon (300) be lighter than titanium (310) ones?

Or would you recommend me the ones further up in titanium with carbon end cap (360), I guess these are best looking

Another question, do one get brackets to mount them without the cargo-bars that goes just inside the heat shields, I've got pannier rack all the way around anyways...

Thanks in advance, looking forward to order something really soon..

The best way I've found to get hold of Aitch is to ring him. The number is in the link on my first post. Yes you have the 3 bolt fitting (same as the adventure).
I see he has brought out the new tri-oval cans but I don't think they would look right with the luggage rack.
I think titanium and carbon looks best but then I'm biased 8-)

Well I just ordered new ones, I'm a little bit stupid not to wait and at least check the forum one final time before :roll:

I went for the oval titanium with carbon end caps (390, I'm rich...;). Do you know if dB-killers are included? And if I can mount them without the bar that the heat luggage shield if fitted on?

Now I'm just lacking a Garmin 660 :geek:

Yes they do come with db-killers. Not sure about the luggage bar as I left mine on.
