Default Re: muffler gasket blowout

I honestly dont have any issue blowing gaskets on mine because I double nut mine and like Tom said make sure that the mating surface is flat so good pressure is applied all across the flange and then like I said I get the first nut good and tight which will have a dab of Blue loctite on it and then I put another nut on behind that one and then tighten them against one another to a very tight level, nuts never back off and gaskets stay nice and sealed, been doing mine this way since the first time I had a nut back off on my first build back in 2009, never had any issues since.

I'm looking forward to getting some of those nice gaskets Dave, copper and/or Dead soft Aluminum should do a fine job when installed right.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
