Edit: Think I was being clueless, hadn't realized that pic was of the gaskets as I hadn't seen 'em when I first saw it & think I just got what 'cut from' was referring to.
92004-1214Thanks streak07, I got the harley gaskets (or I think I did, the local harley shop here doesn't use part numbers ?!?). I had to cut much more than 1/8" or even 3/8". I'd estimate that I cut 1/2" but they ended up like the ones in the first post and fit into the exhaust holes fine. One of my exhaust studs was damaged by the previous owner by cross-threading. Does anyone know if the exhaust studs are replaceable? I did manage to get the nut back on but with great difficulty and I'm not sure how well it's going to grab or stay. Anyway, my first drive into work this morning was backfire free so I'm a very happy rider. Thanks again.
I know I am nut experienced from hanging around you.... take that however you like.2 nuts on one stud. Tighten them against eachother then use the bottom nut to back the stud out. If you're not nut experienced, I would bring it in to a shop and have a professional do it. They shouldnt charge much.
