Part: Honda CB450 / CB500T / Exhaust Gasket - Graphite
Why You Need This Part: When the exhaust gasket is either missing or worn out, exhaust gases are leaving the system before they reach the muffler. A worn gasket can cause problems with tuning, because the bike is experiencing a reduction in back pressure. By replacing your Honda CB450 / CB500T exhaust gasket you are keeping the system air-tight and your bike will run better and be easier to tune.
This is a crucial if you are replacing your mufflers, but even if you are trying to get your factory system running solid putting these on your bike is still recommended. Note that they are sold individually so be sure to get two if you plan on replacing both. If you are looking for the copper exhaust pipe to head gasket we have them available as well.
Note: These exhaust gaskets will only fit the factory exhaust pipe and factory muffler combination for the CB450 or CB500T. It may work on other aftermarket mufflers assuming the inner diameter of the muffler is the same as the outer diameter of the gasket.
Installation Tip: While you have the muffler and pipes apart, clean the mating surfaces thoroughly so that the gasket makes a clean seal.
