Exhaust gasket

Ok so I'm removing my exhaust header this week and I've been looking for gaskets to replace them and I've never felt with motorcycle header gaskets so I a little confused on these little rings instead of one large gasket like on a car. I know I need the four rings for each cylinder but is there anything else I need to replace my gaskets or is it just those four rings

You would not need anything else just a set of gaskets

Ok so I just got my exhaust off, as far as replacing the rings do I just pull out the old rings or do I need to worry that I could potentially damage something?

Ok also where my slip on meets the manifold do I need to have any type of liquid gasket there because the previous owner put some orange gasket stuff there and I was curious if I needed to as well

I have never replaced any gaskets installing aftermarket full system exhausts on my bikes and never had any leaks or issues. I would think that being metal gaskets they can be multi use like an oil pan bolt crush washer. I would not put any other type of gasket liquid or otherwise just the metal ones. The aftermarket yoshimura exhaust pieces are just held together with springs, no gaskets

If you're just dealing with a stock exhaust you can use the parts diagrams at ronayers to see what's supposed to be there and get part numbers (and a good price). I'm sure you're probably *supposed* to replace the gaskets. http://dealers.ronayers.com/Fiche/Ty...R_%28%2705-%29
