    Hm, I don't think my flanges are bending. It seems to be squishing the gasket just fine but I'm afraid by going all the way to base of the intake port its deforming the gasket to the point where I'm...

    In terms of it cutting off when you let out the clutch, that could be as simple as the kickstand wire being frayed or damaged. Still thinks the kickstand is down and kills the bike. You can either...

    Those aren't from the studs or flange, its from the gasket in the exhaust port. I'm with you on the surface rust, which is why I bought new nuts

    Micron headers are a 4 piece system. Each pipe comes apart in the middle'ish but the flanges at the exhaust port don't (at least mine) have retaining rings.

    Appreciate the response. Is there anyway to confirm this without splitting the cases? E.g. a cover I can removed to visually inspect portions? I've never torn apart the right side of the case.
