I've done many on various bikes. You should replace the exhaust gaskets when ever you change pipes. I never have and have not encountered any leaks. Be sure to tighten the flanges down evenly and equally and you will probably be OK. If you do have leaks, determine where the leak is, loosen the flange on the opposite side and tighten the side that is leaking. If you can't get it to stop you can still put in new gaskets.

I honestly don't remeber if the Cobra's came with new gaskets. If they did well I used the new ones, if they didn't then I used the orignal ones and I have had no problems yet.

I'm lucky I know how to fill up the gas tank let alone replace the exhaust! Still trying to find someone who knows how to remove baffles on stock exhaust....obviously I'm not the only idiot who doesn't know the mechanics of a bike around here!

You know the best way to learn is to jump right in. Look at what you want to do, put a little thought into it..... take a deep breath, then go for it. I not saying to rip apart the engine...lol.. but start small and get comfortable wrenching on your bike.

removing the baffles is a killer and way to lould at the end of that headach.

The exaust removel is really pretty simple just take it apart on 3 pieces and its easy not a big puzzle.
