    Africa Twin
    My exhaust is blowing where the rear header pipes enters the 2 into 1 bit :( There's a clamp that has rusted and broken, and under it a crumbling graphite gasket. Now obviously there's no point in having the gasket slipped onto a header piple with a bracket directly over it. The pipe and...
