 Post subject: JiangWayne Zoomer/Ruckus Type I exhaust
PostPosted: Wed Jul 29, 2009 12:15 am 
This review is for the JiangWayne type I exhaust found here:

http://jiangwayne.com/scooter/p_i.php?i=321

Experience:
My shopping experience with JW was actually very pleasant. Upon finding out that they were having a facebook sale, I ended up creating a facebook account just to add them and receive the discount. Their site is a bit cluttered, and can be difficult to navigate, but if you pay attention and read descriptions, you won't have any trouble ordering parts for your scooter and not some other scooter.

I placed the type I, type II exhaust, and NCY seat lowering kit into my shopping cart, proceeded to check out and paid via paypal. Being that the products were being shipped from Canada, and not Taiwan, the shipping cost was only $25 flat for all 3 items. The next morning, i received an email from their Customer Service department, asking what color seat frame i would like. Within an hour, I had a response stating that my color preference would be fulfilled and my order should be leaving later on that day. By the end of the night, i had received an email from UPS stating my tracking number.

Wait time:
After receiving the UPS tracking number, i was given an estimated time of arrival of 5 business days. Being that the order was being shipped from Canada, and I live in Southern California, this was more than reasonable. Within a week, the parts arrived at my house in 2 packages. JW's site says that orders under $200 are not subject to broker or import tax fees. Because my order was over the limit, i was charged with a $25 dollar fee, which was not bad in my opinion. UPS required i pay the fee up front before releasing my packages.

Quality of product:
The JW exhaust is without a doubt of amazing quality. The metal has a really nice shine to it, not like those cheap universal mufflers you'd find at pep boys or your local muffler shops. The fit is amazing, everything went into place without a hitch, and a cool little feature is, you don't need to use the stock gasket on the header pipe, as it's cut to fit flush on the JW header pipe. Compared to my friend's Yoshimura Cyclone, which is 3 times the price of the JW, i'd say it definitely surpasses my expectations and is of comparable quality.

Sound Look and Feel.
Sound:
Initially, i was looking for an exhaust with a similar tone to the Racing Project Murashima exhaust or the Dr. D exhaust. I wanted that loud, deep throaty sound, mimicking a small harley or something. With a price point of $200, it was hard to pass up. I had seen the exhaust videos JW put up advertising their products, and it seemed pretty quiet and higher pitched than i had wanted. Imagine my surprise when i heard my exhaust for the first time.

This exhaust is loud, there's no getting around it, in the entire RPM range, it just screams at you. The only times it's semi- quiet, is when it's idle, or when you're rolling down the hill and hardly giving it any throttle.

The tone is also very very pleasing, I'd venture to say it's very similar to both the RPM and Dr. D exhaust. Compared to my friend's Yoshimura Cyclone, which also has a very nice tone, the JW pipe is both louder, throatier and deeper than the Yosh.

Upon installation, the exhaust will have a slightly higher pitched tone, and will gradually get deeper and louder as it breaks in. i've put close to 40-50 miles on the exhaust already and it's gotten deeper as the miles rack up

Look:
The shorty exhaust, for lack of a better term, is "cute". My other friend has the type II, long type exhaust, and it looks really nice. The exhaust has a very nice polished look, adding to that bling factor to your bike, and it's pretty aggressive as well. The exhaust was designed to have the same angle as the lower rail on your bike, so its very symetrical and pleasing to the eye. The exhaust is etched on the outside with JW's info and has a JW badge on the opposite side which is not easily seen once installed.

Feel:
I've read that every ruck is different, and so i'm basing this solely on my experience. Paired with the briggs and stratton air filter, i can feel that my 0-30mph acceleration has slightly improved, whereas my 30-43mph acceleration has suffered a little bit. I have no complaints about this, as i'm a rather larger guy, and i'd much rather have more low end than top end. Please note, this is on stock jet settings.

Conclusion:
I have no complaints at all from either the company or the product. My only qualm is that when i'm coming home at midnight or later after terrorizing the streets, i have to shut my engine off and walk the length of my neighborhood as to not awaken my dormant neighbors.

For the price, this exhaust can't be beat.

pictures and videos are below.

note: the exhaust seems a little higher pitched than what it sounds like in person.

good write up..I agree with pretty much everything said..I did use the stock gasket..I had no idea you could go sans gasket..I may pull it out of there if it's not needed..I agree that the videos he put up don't do the sound any justice at all..I was expecting this quiet puttery exhaust that you could barely hear at full throttle and instead I was surprised with a very nice low grumble that screams at high rev..I love being able to be heard while in traffic..

Great write up. Your videos (the second in particular) make a VERY strong argument for this pipe. If it is close to that sound in person I'm very interested in a possible pipe swap for myself. Thanks again for the great writeup.

I've been debating about the exhaust for a few weeks now...
Does this exhaust come with a silencer as well just in case I eventually get annoyed with the loud exhaust?

It definitely does sound pretty good..and if it sounds a bit deeper in person than in the vids...its almost perfect :D

yeah, actually i have. i based the review on the first week of ownership, it seems like now my bike likes to top out at about 35 on the flats. i tried throwing in an 85 jet in there, and it just bogged and bogged and bogged, so maybe i need to try something like a 76 or 78

I picked the Zoomer Type II pipe up recently. Purchase was painless and shipped the next day. The pipe looks and sounds great. I'm only running a UNI drop in filter and a KN variator with 6.3g rollers. I did notice that my 0-25 acceleration has slowed a bit. About 5 mph traveling the same distance versus the stock. My top end acceleration is better but my top speed dropped a few MPH. Thinking I may have to go up a size with slow and main jet.

With stock engine, carb, jets - performance has slowed quite a bit. A couple of us in the Vancouver area have purchased them recently - the other guy is selling his due to performance issues, and I might do the same. It is nice and LOUD. You can change that by packing some stainless steel wool inside of it if u like.

Anyways - top speed has decreased almost 10/kmh - and overall the mid range performance is horrible.

It looks nice if your Ruck has NOT been extended - then it's a perfect length. but I have a feeling I'll be taking this back to Wayne.
