Exhaust Pipe Gasket - Need quick help!!

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit confused and hopefully you can help me out. Does the exhaust pipe gasket fit around the diameter of the exhaust pipe or does the exhaust pipe press up against it. Does that make sense. I'm trying to figure out all this popping on deceleration and I'm thinking I might not have a gasket. My bike is the 05.

If you are talking about the one at the head, you install it in the head and the pipe buts up against it.

Yeah the pipe butts up against it and basically crushes it to seal. I had to same problem when i took off my exhaust to do some maintiance and replaced it. I had decelleration pop until i got a new gasket.

You should get a new gasket every time you remove the pipe and re-install it. The gasket is a hollow copper tube that gets crushed when you tighten the bolts. A used gasket will not crush enough to seal the exhaust.
