Just noticed that the seller has relisted these pipes and put another £250 on the asking price :shock:

Inner pipes for LTD Jardine exhaust

Bit of a long shot but does anyone have a decent pair of inner pipes for one of these systems that they are prepared to sell?

Cheers

Re: KZ1000A1 Rebuild

I'm thinking it's going to have to be Diamond Sky Blue. Just letting the finances take a bit of a breather and then hopefully off for paint in a week or two. :D

Re: KZ1000A1 Rebuild

Thanks for the comments. To be honest this bike seems to have been fighting me all the way, will be nice to finally get it finished. Just need to get it painted, wired, ....and find a 4-2 exhaust!
