As Rob has mentioned it's just a push fit into the heads and when refitting I use plain low modulus builders clear silicone. Not so much to hold the pipe in but to seal any potential air leaks which will cause backfiring.

Good job you mentioned the heads and not barrels. :o

Maybe Rob never noticed I had not switched off from pre war to post war engines Roy. Which I forgot to do. Its not a problem with the post war era, bikes are all OHV with exhaust pipes in the heads, unlike pre war SV twins & some singles with pipes in barrels.

Clive, how will you type without fingers? If we don't hear from you, we'll take it that you've fitted it.
