Default Leaks From 3" Extensions ??

Was out riding and noticed the right side is leaking and I assume it must be when it hit ruts or bumps but does leak ! Has anyone else had this issue ? O-ring looks ok and it is tight so not sure of cause . Guess I'll try using one of the OEM rings .

Others have had trouble with this. When I installed I put some RTV Silcone on the o ring and even a little on the threads before I put it together. No leaks. I also used a strap wrench to tighten the extensions.

What you guys are trying to tell me is, take it apart and redo it....

Default Leaks

Yep, the record is broken....


RTV = No leaks so far.

Had issues with my 3's, swapped to OEM seals, had some issues again.

Bought some 4's, used RTV and have had no problems.

1300Vtwin has my 3's and we used RTV on his too, and he is good to go.

Yes I think the strap wrench gets a better grip. JMO

Yeah! I had the same problem JW. I wonder why it is always the right hand side.
No problem after using the silicon.
