    Replacing pipes on my 2011 Road Glide Ultra.
    Can I reuse the 02 sensors? Do I have to replace the metal gasket on the sensor?
    Also, before I read about taking off the sensors, I sprayed a little penetrating oil on them to help remove them. Do you think this damaged them? I don't think the tips got wet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would replace any gasket taken off. New gaskets will save trouble or prevent trouble later on.

    :D Think of the gasket as a crush gasket on a spark plug, if you can remove it and find a new one do it:s
