Yea so that permatex copper gasket... only rated to 700F... I think that link pipe/cat get a LOT hotter than that.
I rode over to my buddies house all of about 5 miles away, parked, got off the bike, and tons of smoke was pouring off of that gasket. Now, either it was the gasket (smelt like burning rubber), or the oil burning off the new leo pipe, or the heat wrap i put on the exhaust burning in.
I think it was the gasket personally. I think i got some on the INSIDE of the pipe b/c all the way out the end of the exhaust tip were pieces of liquid orange gasket. It shot through the exhaust system.
The good news is, I kept riding and by the time I got home the smoke and pretty much stopped.
