Crush Gaskets and Stock Pipes
Hi, Folks -
You've all created a tinkering monster, and since it's kinda rainy here today, I'm anxious to go break my...I mean, improve the performance of my bike. So I went out and bought sea foam, a portable tach for idle speed adjustment, and the HD crush gaskets that folks have recommended for reducing the decel popping. The more I read, however, the more I think I should have read before going into the HD store (blech! American marketing beyond comprehension!)...can I use these gaskets (17098 whatever) on stock pipes, or was I just supposed to get those if I was putting in after maket ones? And I recall correctly the last time I had my right pipe off, there's a little copper "crush" gasket in there already - do I take that out when I put in the new ones (assuming they're the right item)?
Thanks. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, too, so I can get myself into lots of trouble between now and leaving for work on Monday a.m.
