I installed these following the paper instructions. I can not close the gap completely between the pipes and the muffler. Anyone else have this problem? If you fixed it, how?

Personally, I use a calipers to make sure it's all going to fit (diameter and length), then clean the exhaust pipe with a brass wheel on a drill with some cleaner if it needs it. I might use a little copper anti-seize, maybe, depending.

I wrap the far end of the exhaust in a doubled-up microfiber cloth and zip-tie that to the pipe, then for flat-ended exhausts place a block of wood between the hammer and pipe it and tap it in; for curved--that's different. I wrap the whole bike and exhaust in microfiber cloths and wiggle-wiggle all the way (I did a post a few years back on this, with pics).

I always put clean cardboard on the floor so if when I drop something it lands softly. If the exhaust has a sharp tip I'll even put a plastic coffee container or something similar under the exhaust pipe (with a microfiber cloth on top of it) so the tip doesn't get bent if the pipe slips and falls. I might also put a rounded wood plug in the far end and then zip-tie a cloth over that because that's the time everyone wants to talk to me, and I get distracted easily. Really the best thing is to do the work in the shipping container where I store my stuff and leave the phone on silent so I can concentrate. There's not enough room to shoot a video, but whatever, I hate editing video anyway. (and I suck at it)

If you use some exhaust joint paste, it will lubricate it enough to slide together. It will also ensure a leak proof joint when it dries.

Pro Tip: If there's no backpressure there are no leaks.

I'm a big fan of copper anti-seize. It stops all sorts of things from being impossible to disassemble.

It's not impossible if it's a liquid! ;)
