Part: Honda CB550F / CB550K Composite Exhaust Pipe Gasket
Why You Need This: Tick, tick, tickÃ– what is that noise? If you have had the pipes on and off the bike, chances are it is a exhaust leak. These Composite Exhaust Pipe Gaskets go between the port on the cylinder head and the exhaust pipe; they are often so squished and covered with carbon that they go unnoticed, a fresh set resolves this. Sold in sets of 4.
Installation Tip: Look carefully at the exhaust ports, unless you see aluminum then the old gasket is still in there. Scratch the carbon off the surface with a small screw driver, once you see the gasket gently pry them out.
