On my 2000 XR250 I don't have any type of seal of any sort on the area where the header meets the exhaust all I have is a clamp. If your leaking at that joint and you've tightened the clamp sufficiently I would take it off and use a Hi-temp silicone or sealent to seal the area. I personally have no problems with mine. I'm not sure about the pin.

Hope this helps.

i used RTV red high temp silicone as a precaution when installed mine....no probs :thumbsup:

i would further tighten the clamp to see whether that helps...if not...any high temp silicone will be able to seal that leak for you :thumbsup:

I bought "chamber seal" today for this exact cause I have a IDS on my 400 and it leaks slighty where yours does, I am going to put this on my 300ex as well, the pipe is leaking in the same spot, Ill let you know how it works.
