My exhaust did not come with gaskets... got them from the stealership for minimal cost.

just something for you to check

I would also put new gaskets in. Beets taking it off and installing them again. I put new ones on when I put my Tri-Pros on.

I used the gaskets from the stock pipe
When I installed the Cobra Tri-Pro, I re-used the existing gaskets. Heck, they never even came out of the heads, so I let them be. They are working just fine, not leaking at all.

In the past, whenever I installed a new exhaust on a bike, I always re-used the existing gaskets, never caused me a moments problem. Heck, on my last CBX, I changed the exhaust 4 or 5 times in the 16 years I owned the bike, re-used the stock gaskets every time. Never leaked. Never had to buy new gaskets for an exhaust change since 1979.

But go ahead, the dealer will love you for it.:bigthumbsup:

I've had my pipes on and off quite a few times and have reused the stock gaskets. Make sure the faces of them are smooth and torque the new pipes down evenly.

Read up on the SET valve actuator and how to remove and replace the cam on it, or be prepared to clip the wire on the ECU to disable it. Most of the problems folks have with installing new pipes comes from problems with the SET afterward.
