hey guys, I finally finished my tranny rebuild on my 87 gixxer750.
since running it, it pops and sounds like garbage when letting off the throttle or going down a hill. i think that the exhaust is leaking. sound right?
the problem is, i had to helicoil 3 of the 8 header bolts and im afraid to take the header off in case of messing it all up.
New gaskets were ordered a long time ago, but i only received 3 of them. they were the copper style, and the kind already in my bike were the asbestos(thicker by 2.5 mm). i ended up using 1 old style(a new one) to use with the 3 coppers.
I dont want to torque the bolts to much, but im pretty sure they are tight enough.(no torque spec in the haynes)
i might try some high heat silicone, or permatex ultra copper gasket maker...
but im not sure if i can just apply this around the seams, or if i have to remove the header first to use effecively....
if youre still with me, any ideas?
