Exhaust end can problem
« on: January 26, 2019, 07:50:06 AM »
Hi all,

Taking my black widow slip on’s Off the bike & putting stock pipes back on.

Should be simple enough... you’d think.

I’m having trouble with the gasket though, I took the original off & fitted it to the black widows with no issue at all.

If I’m not explaining it well, I’m referring to part number 11061-0726

Now I’ve taken them back off the black widows & they’re a bit mangled up & the refit isn’t going well.

Do they need to be replaced or would I get away with using exhaust paste to seal them in ?

Kawasaki want over 20 quid for new gaskets.

Any advise appreciated.

Thanks all.


Ps... Black widows for sale in the near future

Have checked for new gaskets on eBay?

Why are you taking the black widows off?

I did look on eBay & found cheaper ones, just sceptical about figment issues with them that’s all.

I’ve got some exhaust paste in shed, was just wondering if a splodge of that around the pipe before I push it into the cat would do the same job.

Putting bike back to stock before I sell it.

They are "crush fit" gaskets and not really intended to be re-used but lots of people do and can get away with it, just like you did when you fitted the aftermarket cans.

If you are feeling a bit cheap, you can use silicone sealant on the old gaskets.

When i changed mine from standard to black widows i only slackened the clamps off slightly and twisted the standard end can to break the seal but still hold the gasket in place you would twist the link pipe a bit easier with the end can out of the way does not always work the gasket will lose its integrity the more times you change the exhaust
