Exhaust Manifold Gaskets

The new gaskets look a bit cheap and nasty,half the thickness of the old ones,look ready to leak as soon as the engine fires.Should any sealing compound be used when fitting?.

They are the same as the gaskets on the 916, Haven't had any leaks & not required sealing compund.

gaskets

yep there the same ones I got from ducati Coventry and Ive had no probs with them yet I just fitted S/S flanged nuts instead of the steel ones I took off.
Are your pipes still off the bike if so you want to change the 2 analyser plugs for brass ones as I had to drill out the old and they where extremely hard.
