Does any one out there have a problem burning through their exhaust gaskets/ the one that goes between you header and canister. I've been through 5 of them in the past year.

yep I had the same I use fiberglass header wrap as my gasket! I wrap it around 3 times then clamp it w/a clamp (so it wont blow out)! And this seems to work fine now!


I get my kicks on a 2001' YZ426!
