I Ride: 99 ZRX1100, 06 FE450e; previously 05 EX500, 81 kz550, 07 KLX250S, 93 KDX200, 92 KLR250
2006 FE450e Header Sealing

What are people using as the "copper paste" that the Husaberg service manual mentions when installing the exhaust headers? I'm used to jap bikes with copper gaskets and bolted collars to seal up the headers.

How careful do I need to be in sealing the headers up? I've got one header with a semi-tight fit and one with a looser fit.

Thanks!

I have the same issue with mine. Awful fit to be honest. Maybe it's contributing to all the pops and bangs I get on deceleration..

Will give this paste mentioned above a go I guess!
