exhaust sealant pastes
« on: June 06, 2015, 07:38:55 pm »
Hi Folks

When I get back onshore I am taking the back wheel in for a new tyre. I have read the posts on removing or not removing the exhaust.
Q. For the people who did remove the exhaust did you use any exhaust heat sealant when re fitting the exhaust.
Did you use normal paste or a heat resistant silicone sealant.
If so what type and can any of them have an affect on O2 sensors? tho in this case the joint would be upstream of the sensor so may not have an affect.

thanks

Might be different in the UK but in talking to a couple of Triumph techs, they don't use any paste when reinstalling the silencer.   Nor does the service manual mention it.

I just installed my fourth rear tire which means I have had the silencer off four times. I just slip it back on and tighten the clamp to specs. No sealants, no pastes, no problems at all.

I never bother to take the silencer off. It really isn't necessary

Hi Ralph.... No need for sealant.... When you take the silencer off there is a 'collar' that the clamp goes onto... No paste needed at all!
