Muffler exhaust gasket install tips
« on: May 26, 2022, 06:26 AM »
Hi Folks,

My bike needs a new gasket between the muffler and the header pipes, Ive just removed a Delkavic system that was too loud for me and would constantly leak at the header pipe seal. I'm reinstalling the stock Muffler. I have cleaned up the header pipe connection of all the old gasket with sand paper and a dremel with wire wool attachment. Now how do I install the graphite gasket with out destroying it?
Last bit are the torque settings for the clamp 12 or 15 ft lb?

Thanks
