RE: Question on Installing V&C Cruzers on my 2000 650 Classic
If you look closely you will see that the inner pipe is actually seating against the inside of the port (where the new gasket will go). It is only the flange that sits out about 3/4" or so from the port, unlike the stock exhaust which is almost flush. I don't know why V&H does it this way, but it works fine. Mine haven't leaked at all.
