Just did mine a couple of weeks ago and thought the same thing when the header came off and I looked. The Victory ones are metal and look like they are not there. If you look real close you can see the seam and as soon as you put a small screw driver to it they will come out.

Speaking of exhaust gaskets...I think I have a small exhaust leak from my front cylinder. I'm getting a little staining on the side of the cylinder head and when you wipe it off its black and sooty like an exhaust leak. Anybody else had this? Also, I thought I'd read the older gaskets are better than than the new ones? Confirm? Deny?

Lloyd does a better exhaust gasket than stock
I've just bought a pair, along with some other tasty engine upgrade bits.
His seal much better than originals so I hear.

Photo would be good. Try tightening your exhaust flange bolts. Take a ride and then check again. You might have to do it twice to get them tight.
Not sure if exhaust would give you a sooty look up there

Loosened them re-torqued, didn't look at gaskets. I'll take a pic.
