I made up a torque ring for my 2000 KDX200 with a FMF (K-35) pipe and open air box. My question is do I need two exhaust gaskets or one? And should they be placed between the cylinder and spacer orbetween the spacer and pipe or both?
How much will this help on tight 1-3 gear single track trails?
Thanks

Headbanger,

Are you looking for more low end torque from your 200? Here is what you do, trade it in for a 220 :p My 220 rules the tight single track here in Minnesota, it's got plenty torque/low end power!! All kiding aside, I am sure there must be someone out there that can help you with your torque ring problem.

Good luck, see ya on the trails

For exhaust gaskets, I usually just use a fair amount of clear silicone between the pipe and cylinder. As to the torque ring, it does help a little but it isnt anything earth shattering. The plus is that it costs next to nothing to do, so with that in mind, keep it in. As far as the gaskets go, you should probably put one on each side of the spacer. Some people will actually stack gaskets together to create the desired spacing that your torque ring provides.
