Default exhaust gasket?!

ok, im in the middle of sandblasting my pipes to give them their annual matte finish..... problem. this ring that i THOUGHT was just a seal/gasket that sat between the block's outlet and the pipe's beginning, was actually a woven wire ring

(like this)

http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/at...ded-gasket.jpg

and it was apparently painted black like the pipes, but it looks like it may have actually just been PLASTERED with carbon/exhaust?? idk wat to make of it. do i just stick that wire ring back in once im ready to start cooking the paint??

~ please, NOT asking for painting tips fyi, not my first rodeo. ONLY asking about the nature of this wire ring, thx ~

They are just exhaust gaskets. Depending on there condition you can just reuse them.

The gasket you pictured fits on the stock header collector between the muffler and the collector. It can generally be re-used a few times. They are available from Yamaha if the muffler section won't seal or flops around.

If the gaskets in question are for the 2-bolt head pipe as per my reply ... replace them!

I took this from a stripped exhaust stud thread and was a reply by AZ. Don't mess around and change them.

g

The nuts for the front studs should be torqued to only 14 foot pounds (20nm).
The bolts for the rear header to jug torque to 17 foot pounds (24nm).
These numbers assume you are installing new header-to-jug crush gaskets.
Using new gaskets means the crushing-action seals at this light torque.
If you re-use gaskets then greater torque is required to seal. Guess what
happens when you over-torque by too much? The aluminum threads pull.
This is why I keep new gaskets on hand for the header-to-jugs, and for
the two motor oil drain plugs, and for the spark plugs.
