Exhaust issue: home made aftermarket (gasket problem?)
Hey,
I bought my motorcycle with after market exhaust pipes. The pipes are not fastened (excuse my wording, non-english/beginner) with anything but the 2 screws by the cylinder, and the rear pipe does not seem to fit; i can move it vertically up and down. I assume I should not be able to do this, or does it have to do with the fact that it is not sealed by anything but the 2 screws by the cylinder?

Is there something wrong with the gasket? Perhaps I need to tighten the screws harder, I was able to remove them fairly easy.

Also, does anyone know which gasket I need (the one in the picture)? I saw a thread in this subforum, but I was not sure which gasket he was referring to; do I need 4BR-14613-00, or 4TR-14613-00?

Edit: 2004 v star 650 Custom

Thanks!!

The two bolts at the cylinder should really only be holding the pipe tight against the cylinder. The weight of the pipes should be supported by a bracket bolted to the motorcycle frame.
