Mid pipe too small for new gasket

I bought the bike with a Yoshi RS5 slip-on and stock headers. Just replaced the stock headers with arrow headers and wanted to use a new exhaust gasket but the PO had the mid pipe tightened down as far as possible without any gasket. Other than taking it to a shop, is there any way I can open it back up with normal tools and not damage it?

I might be wrong but all the aftermarket slip-ons I have seen does not use the headers to midpipe gasket....you should be good without using the gasket if there is no exhaust leaks

Are we there yet?!

My slipon has no gasket. Just used a tube of that "gasket maker" paste that hardens when heated up. Just in case.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.
