exhaust install 101..

well i learned a few things the hard way. apparantly hona'd head stud/nut set up likes to seize up and you have to somtimes order new studs and nuts. i need 2. also you also have to replace the exhaust gaskets, i thought they would be re-usable, NOT... ohh and the can has a dent in it. so my day is going great!

just needed to vent a bit...

Re: exhaust install 101..

ANTI - SEIZE compound is a must on exhaust.

Coppercoat is what I use but there are some silver based compounds available for extreme heat situations.
We use silver based at work. ( Turbine engines etc. )

I also suggest light torque on the exhaust nuts, run bike to normal temps then final torque.
Good Luck
What kind of Pipe are you installing anyway?

Re: exhaust install 101..

If you purchased the system new, did it come w/the dent? If so I would insist on a replacement, plus that the company pay shipping both ways.

Re: exhaust install 101..

i 100% agree! i will call tomorrow morning. cause they are closed. i bought it through pipe city. i heard they are good people so we will certainly find out. luckily i noticed it as soon as i opened up the packing, so i didn't even start the bike with it on there...

Re: exhaust install 101..

Don't forget hi temp gasket sealer. You'll need it when you assemble the pipes.
