I checked the parts breakdown for the headers in the workshop manual and it shows manifold gaskets. Perhaps these didn't come out when you removed the stock headers?

The Gaskets Part number is 8537198

For reference: the header nuts Part number is 7676551

Really?
I expected to find some, so I looked for the gaskets and didn't found them.
Good thing you did extra research.
it's indeed possible they didn't come out.
Anyway, didn't bother to replace them this time.

I fit the rear arrow muffler and ditched the db killer. It's now loud and a different bike. Can't get the smile off my face. :D

Did you guys bolt the center support straight to bike without any anti-vibrating rubbers etc.? In my mind should be ok because both downpipes and also slip-on are "loose" with springs so not that much vibrations.

Took off the original pipework yesterday and no big issues; loosened radiator a bit and getting those exhaust nuts was piece of cake. Took off completely the exhaust valve engine + wires, next thing is to locate the O2 sensor's connector (PC V also to be installed)...

I'm sent my collectors back due to a defect. Waiting on the outcome.

This one is nearly invisible and can only be reached after you made some space by turning th erear subframe backwards.
It's fixed by a clip on a horizontal surface. Left had side of the bike, underneath the gas tank.
Make sure you find the correct one, as there are multiple connectors in that area.

Yeah, workshop manual told to take off the fuel tank (+ rear subframe)... Well, winter soon here and lots of evenings & weekends for tinkering... *sigh* :twisted:

It's such a bitch to disconnect it.
