I replaced the gaskets today and my exhaust continues to leak. After I secured the flanges with the pipes lined up I had to pull the front pipe in two inches (back next to the rear wheel) to get it to bolt up. This put stress on the pipe and the front cylinder is leaking at the front of the gasket. I can feel it with my hand.
I have longshots with the pipe covers.
Any ideas or help will be appreciated.
The rear bolted up fine and does not leak.
Disregard-I loosed the flange back up and there didn't seem to be any load on it. I was able to remove the gasket and I reinstalled it and torqued it down and no more leak. I'm going to ride and get it warm then re-torque the bolts.
