Ok guys My R came w/ FMF pipe that leaks black goo like crazy! I know the o-ring is toast but I cant find a replacement thru FMF. They sell a nice spring & o-ring kit for Banshee's but nothing for my 250R. :(
Does anyone have a solution?

My ESR pipe and old Pro Circuit pipe also leak there. It is normal on the R's.

Ok what about where the header pipe meets the expansion chamber? there was an o-ring in there but came out in 5 pieces! FMF dosnt seem to sell an replacement.

clean up the surfaces good with a scotch pad or something similar then put a good bead of high temp silicone in there. i use the black permatex. wait a while before you start it so the silicone has time to dry. 24hrs should be plenty. i use the silicone at all my exaust joints.

what he said and provided ya have good exhaust hangers at every location to keep the pipe movement to a minimum. you will have trouble free leakage at the joints for quite some time. B)
