    got the bolts out...(the double bolt method was simple and not so scary they kind of seemed like they wanted out)

    now my problem is can i get the make ur own gasket maker at autozone and make my own or just order one online .__. it got all effed up when i pulled back the muffler

    From my long experience with the 2-strokes (and early 4-strokes) I have found the best exhaust gasket to be:

    any metallized heat-riser gasket for an early VW Bug. Like this here @ 59 cents

    Napa sells these (just tell em you need a heat riser gasket for single port pre-'70 Bug engine) or order them cheap online!

    These gaskets are perfect for any chinagirl 2-strokes or the HS/Titan/GXH50 4-strokes. Anything with same bolt spacing.

    Edit: another way to go if you need an exhaust gasket real bad is to just make it out of a beer or soda can. I have done this and it does work!

    Naw man, a chinagirl aint that complicated. a doubled-up can slice will work great for an exhaust gasket, intake gasket, too.

    Heh, you know one time I busted my front mounts on a chinagirl and I was a long way from home,

    I was near an Ace Hardware tho and i bought a couple big hose clamps.

    I hoseclamped the base of that chinagirl jug to the bike frame with 2 of those hose clamps and it never moved again!

    Til I replaced it anyway lol

    For an exhaust gasket....fold alum. foil several times and punch the holes in it ...will last forever

    There is no limit to the way you can work up an effective exhaust on these little HT motors. I am not even gonna tell you what I've done - but I will brag that it works great!

    I attended a local bike night and I did a big inspection of a very raw and wide open Harley (no way I would ever venture into a Harley store). A big part of the support for the exhaust came from SPRINGS that hooked directly onto the engine block.

    I don't see why this wouldn't work withe the HT. Put a nice copper fitting over the exhaust port, make a stainless steel bracket to hold it tight, then attach springs from the jug to hold it all in place. No limit to what you could do!
