changing the exhaust ( gaskets)

Hi,

What have you guys done with the exhaus gasket when you change the headers? Is there any gasket on the stock exhaust?
Im about to change on mine, but can not see the stock gaskets.

Need some advice here

do you mean the exhaust manifold gaskets? the original gaskets are made of copper and a bit difficult to remove without deforming them. when I bought the black widow exhaust manifolds inside the box there was also a set of bigger new gaskets.

Gassssssss........................

hi, they come out easilly with a screwdriver that has approx 3mm bent tip @ 45 degree, , best to replace them due to the involved nature of installing replacement exhaust, regards craig, (ex m/cycle technician)
