There's a product that Dale Walker (who makes Holeshot exhaust) includes with his slip-on kit, that I've used in the past. It's available at Autozone and although I don't remember the name I due know that it is in a copper/white coloured tube (blue lettering I think) and is made for that application. In fact, I think it may actually have copper as one of the ingredients.

hey thanx, i was told...i think it was two bros exhaust that include high temp silicone, so i got that, then i was talking to some dudes at work and they said it could get brittle in time with high temp, i do not want to weld the slipon, not just yet cause i might change the headers, any way they suggested the J-b, but weren't too sure about motorcycle exhaust,
thanx for your input

Jason,
What you're talking about is either anti-sieze compound or high temp silicone.
A slight bit of the high temp silicone may help in this case.

Setfast,
Properly intalled you shouldn't have a leak at the joint.
The JB weld stuff will eventually crack and then you'll have a mess to clean up as well.
Try repositioning the band clamp to see if it will seal better.
If that doesn't fix it, swing by the shop and I'll look at it real quick, no charge.
If you

Thinking out loud again, is it possible you have a burr from where you made the cut and that's the source of the leak?

I agree with Patrick. reposition the clamp, I recently put a D&D on my CBR and had to reposition both clamps to lose the slight leaks there. I even took the time to call D&D and they said they did not include gaskets or sealants because they were not needed if it was properly installed.

I ended up in using a different clamp to get rid of the exhaust leak on my Two Bros.
