Thread: 2012 R1200RT Exhaust header gaskets?

    2012 R1200RT Exhaust header gaskets?

    In an online vid by Max BMW when changing the exhaust on a R1200GS there was a very thin gasket in the exhaust port which was replaced. After removing the pipes on my 2012 R1200RT I do not find a gasket? Is the RT different from the GS? Vid was made in 2012 but do not know the model year of the GS.

    Exhaust gaskets can commonly get so compressed into the port that they are not easily visible. Have a second look with good lighting, and I’ve had to sometimes use a right-angle pick to pop loose a gasket that looked like just a ridge or feature in the port.

    Thanks guys. After taking a second and third look they finally showed themselves. Out they came and fresh gaskets installed. Chrome pipes I installed look so much better! Anyone need a set of ugly pipes? LOL
