While the exhaust gaskets may not be the most notable part of your motorcycle, they still play an important part. What do they do? They help to seal the engine headers, preventing leaks and ensuring peak performance. By helping to direct the spent engine gaskets out of the engine and through the exhaust system, your exhaust gaskets also help to stave off engine damage.

They're placed between the engine head's exhaust port and the pipe running out of your motor, sealing that connection and forming the snug, secure fit you need when pairing metal surfaces to each other. That helps keep everything flowing properly while also ensuring correct bolt torquing.
