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

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.

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

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