    You should replace the exhaust port gaskets when reassembling.

    look for a service manual on Amazon or other internet sites. I got one for my '07 FXDC for twenty something bucks, don't remember exactly. An absolute must if you want to do much work on your bike yourself. Well worth the few bucks.

    Sorry for my ignorance Hobbit, but I have no idea what you mean with a balance pipe or balancer gaskets.

    Thanks for clarifying!

    Balance pipes usually run between the two exhaust pipes to equalize the exhaust pulses. ie. both cylinders firing through both mufflers each time they fire.

    The balance pipe on the Bobs is a small pipe connected between the head pipes, look down on the right side of your bike between the rear brake pedal and the rear master cylinder you will see the connecting pipe. Older Evos had the pipe under the AC:s

    This is a balance pipe on an FXR just below the carb. On some later models it is a shorter pipe that crosses between the pipes just forward of the mufflers and for the most part isn't visible because it is painted black.

    Penny wise and pound foolish may sound funny but to try to do any work on something you depend on to take you away and get you home without the manual is not wise. That being said if you google HD Street Bob exhaust there are post that show how to get the job done.:newsmile034:
