I don't remember the instructions mentioning not to fit Gaskets - I certainly did when I installed my Serket Taper (re-used the originals as the bike was fairly new) and had no issues at that junction.Hi this is my first post and I’m completely new to this forum, I was hoping by joining I could get some valuable info and advice... I have a question about my scorpion serket taper exhaust, it’s says on the fitting instructions that to remove standard gaskets if fitted, it seems to me this is a little bit weird to do I.e no copper gasket between the header and down pipes? What’s your oppinion and previous experience with it if you have fitted yours yourselves? Kind regards Luke.
Probably best to call Scorpion to confirm though (they offer technical advice over the phone).
Do note, when installing Gaskets, that they are designed to be installed in a particular orientation (if you look carefully, you should see that one side of the Gasket is flat and the other very slightly curved).
