Ok so i mounting an esoril to a kitted magnum. Regular stuff here.

Theres always that issue with the pipe being so big that it makes it difficult to get the nuts on, but if you take your time and use a box wrench you can usually get around this without too much hassle.

So i get the pipe on , and the damn thing keeps leaking. I decide im gonna put another gasket on just for good measure.

Thing is when i go to put the pipe back on, it wont go on. Now i know it did before, cause i just too the goodamn thing off.

Then i figure out that i think mounting this is bending the studs. so roll a nut on there,use a deep drive and kinda bend em back. Sure enough the pipe goes back on and i snug up the nuts as much as possible. Leaks 100 times worse.

Anyone else have this happen? do i need to dremel the holes for the studs in the pipe header so its not bending my studs or do i need to get those long bolts that only moped warehouse seems to stock?

And is there such thing as a thin walled socket?
