Question ? about my new exhaust..

I just installed my new yoshi rs-5 carbon slip on and I love it but after it was running for a few minutes i noticed a very small drip of moisture coming from where the pipe meets the other pipe from the headers (it was probably one drip per every couple minutes).. is this normal? anybody else notice that? or do i need to take it back off and adjust the gasket.. thanks for everybodys help

Wish I could help but mine doesn't drip. Just a guess but you may need to adjust the positon of the clamp and retighten. Good Luck! Doesn't it sound awesome!

It's condensation formed during the combustion process. the end result from a perfect burn is Water and CO2. just an idea, but sounds very very normal.

Black hi-temp RTV works better than a stinking gasket!

had the same problem ... the condensation will go away , but the water leaves nasty stains when the pipes heat up ... i used the ultra copper high temp rtv silicone ... i applied it on both ends of the mid pipe where it met the headers and where it met the pipe

how are you liking the yosh ? i'm running the ss/cf full system ... nice rumble !!



that bike has been designed just for me , it's too much for a kid like you

Go to the auto parts store and get hi temp RTV. It's silicon in a tube. Works wonders and costs about 4 bucks. Lay a bead on the pipe and slide it in.

It doesnt harden, it stays flexible. Put it on then tighten the clamp as soon as you do it. I waited about 5 minutes till I fired my bike up and it's perfect. If you ever have to take it apart it's just a good twist and out it comes.

Wink

haha thanks for tha very very bad idea.. lol the exhaust just spit in my face and said pppphh**** U! nah it must be that your exhaust is different than mine because after i tightened the clamp all the way and the sealent set the pipe just lifted right up... there is like a 1/4 inch gap all the way around... the gasket is a must... thanks for the help though.. good thing its winter!
