New slip-on! New leak!

I just installed my new yoshi slip-on exhaust for my 08 Honda CBR. Followed the directions and even went on youtube. I have a leak that looks like its coming form the clamp behind the rear foot break. Any ideas?

Same here.

My FMF slip-on directions even said to use the copper RTV between the pipes. Combine this with the nice t-bolt clamp, and I have zero leaks.

How do you know you have a leak? Sound? Or exhaust smoke? I have noticed that my exhaust odor has gotten really bad and I am using a Yoshi.

I would make a Gasket with aluminum foil. Just like wrapping teflon on a pipe end. I have done that for small exhaust leaks on my eighteen wheelers

very common, don't sweat it. it's a mix. little oil, little gas, little condensation, little soot. worst case senario, it stains you pipe some.

Really? how does oil get in the exhaust pipe at the end? and how come you don't see it when there is no leak, like on a normal exhaust? ( i dont ask to say your wrong, i ask because i really want to know )

Sometimes it would just leak a hair. No big deal just like adding a shim. It already had a band clamp

Didn't think it was oil but when stuff starts coming out that isn't water kinda makes u wonder. I'm new to bikes so everything is a learning situation. Thanks to all that helped.

because ALL Motors burn or blow by some oil, the reason for not seeing it is that if it goes into the muffler it is heated and vaporizes and is expelled out in the exhaust stream and you never see it, same as the carbon(soot) from unburned fuel it builds up, water is a byproduct of combustion as the item is heated it can no longer hold the moisture and it is either vaporized and recondenses on a cooler surface or is precipitated out in a higher volume canister(muffler)

If you cant "hear" it, it's not a leak. Most auto exhausts have holes in resonators and mufflers to drain condensation and or condensation seeps from joints. You don't notice it because it's out of sight...
