That's no 5 minute job by any stretch. Wait for a day you can't ride, and like VJ posted, give yourself lots of time and do not use the Vic OEM ones. They are hard and difficult to get a good seal with and aftermarket ones are squishier.

The only way it could be easier is if they jumped in there all by themselves.

I went back to stock gaskets, coz it seems that the soft gaskets restrict the flow (see aftermarket gasket picture) @half_crazy gave me that info....

The "neck" of the aftermarket exhaust was a bit irregular, so i grinded it "more flat"

With install i handtighten the "neck" flange first and moved the exhaust slowly up/down by hand so i knew all the surface pressure by tightening the exhaust flange & neck onto the gasket & engine... was even spread and NOT slightly on a angle ...

Why would you want to change the original gaskets ? Are they leaking ?

Bought mine new exhaust gaskets from Auto Zone. So far have worked good.-----Yes the old stock gaskets like to leak after a few thousand miles. You can try just tightening up the header pipe at the head first and see if that solves the leaks at first, but it may not.
