Got some sorpion stainless slipons secondhand for a good price, looking at putting them on and the standard exhaust gasket is not going to fit - will I need to use abit of high temp silicon to seal it?

Had another look and there was no way the gaskets were going to fit in the scorpion mid pipes I have (local honda dealer wants $20 per gasket) used some high temp silicon and put it all together, I'll find out if it works tomorrow.

Went for a quick ride today and the pipes sound great, the bike feels alot smoother. There is a small leak still at the righthand side connecting pipe but I cant hear it so thats how its going to stay.

I wouldn't bother looking for a cheap tank in Australia max, you'd be more likely to find one in the US.

Next up is a set of front brake lines, airbox and snorkel are along long way away - probably never.
