True .... And do not use these soft aftermarket exhaust gaskets ... There even worse ... So STOCK gaskets are much better then aftermarket.
Also did you see the exhaust flanges of the aftermarket pipes ? I smoothen them out already

I get your point, but being that hard and not sealing can cause cold air to get sucked in there too... for the most part if Lloydz uses it I would say they know what they're doing. He's pulled apart a LOT of bikes and if those softer gaskets are what he recommends then I'd be inclined to use them myself.

I prefer the OEM crush gaskets. Call me crazy....
True, i went back to the stock aluminium stock gasket also ... Coz when i removed my exhaust the soft gasket was all squized inside the hole,
BUT, it seals easier then the aluminium, coz te RPW flange was not machined nicely, now i grinded the new flat surface so hopefully the exhaust will not leak

RPW pipes, OEM gaskets, no leaks.
