    Exhaust Bolt replacement


    Had a heck of a time removing my front cylinder exhaust bolts but we did it. Although the threads are fine but the bolt could be a little loose/wobbly my question is, should I just JB weld in exhaust studs instead of using Allen head cap bolts? I don't want to deal with this issue again or for the next owner should I sell it.

    I did this for my '79 GS 850 for the same reasons. I just didn't JB weld in the studs.

    I second the anti-seize. Haven't had any issues.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    I haven't torqued it down yet to see how the treads hold up. Will apply the anti-seize though. Exhaust gaskets are coming in today.

    Love KB Weld but would NOT hold up to exhaust temperatures

    A sliver of thin copper sheet in the hole making it snugger

    Torqued it down and all is currently good, not exhaust leak.

    Thanks for the advice guys.
