It's hard to see in the pic but my cans actually come away from the bike at a 45° angle to clear everything.  It doesn't have to be straight, it just has to look and sound good.   ;)

Last, get some Permatex muffler paste.

Hey Scott!

Ok, are we talking about Permatex Muffler & Tailpipe Sealer (80335)?


Or, Permatex Muffler & Tailpipe Putty (80333)?


None of my local establishments, even the ones that carry the Permatex brand, has either one of these.  They all have other brands, but I think they're more for repairing holes, and presumably set rock-hard and have to be removed with a chisel - which I'm pretty sure I don't want...
My other wheels:www.midcoast.com/~beechhil/vielle My ISP stopped hosting all user websites, deleted them without notice!  >:( grrr...

Gremlin heads for the hills…

I use this:

It comes in a silver, metal squeeze tube.  Of the two you posted, I think one is primarily for slip joints in automotive exhausts.  The stuff I posted hardens completely to a rigid plaster/cement like consistency.  Once hardened it can crack or be chipped and scaped off at a later time.
