I see these exhaust pipe gaskets listed on a parts diagram. There are none on my 1100. Are they really needed and where do they go? Over the end of the header, between the flange and the head?

If your exhaust is not leaking, you have gaskets. These are round, crushable rings that get lodged into the head as they crush from tightening the header bolts.. They are hard to detect as they form into the exact shape of the opening and must be pried out. To install new ones, pry out the old gaskets and insert the new gaskets into the opening before installing the exhaust header pipes.

Thank you. I will look closer for them to see if they are there. I don't know if there is an exhaust leak as the bike had sat three years before purchasing it. I still have a little more to do before attemting to fire it up.

Look for TAS motorsports on Ebay. They have the copper ones for $8.99 for a set of 4, w/free shipping. I just bought a set and they shipped fast and worked well.
Hope this helps,
