I've always been under the impression that the crush exhaust gaskets were a "One and Done" . . . once the exhaust is loosened up, the gasket needs to be replaced.

I was there while they did the work. The one thing that bothered me was the way they jacked the bike. I asked them if they had a different kind of jack because they used a floor jack. They lifted the rear wheel off the ground and left the weight of the bike on the kick stand and now it is looser than it was before. It was real tight before now it is looser but not loose enough to fall while riding.

"I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.'" President John F. Kennedy, 1 August 1963.

All they had to do to get your axle out is to take out the bottom bolts that hold the rear shocks and let the swing arm drop enough to clear the pipes.
