Exhaust gaskets

I'm changing out the exhaust om my 99 KLT. What is the best way to remove the old brass gaskets. They are quite stuck and I don't want to scratch the head. Thanks in advance

Re: Exhaust gaskets

Just rim the area with a flat blade screw driver and they will pop right out. They are just flattened and covered with carbon. Don't be afraid to go in after them.

Re: Exhaust gaskets

They should come out OK. Made of copper me thinks. Buy new ones and replace.

Re: Exhaust gaskets

Just put a little grease on the new copper gaskets to hold them in place up in the head.
