I was about to tighten it and noticed it had cracked and was in 2 pieces. I took the manifold off and the gasket had cracked aswell.
Is this a manufacturing fault?
Also, Do the exhaust manifold and exhaust have to connect together? or can you just use the connector piece to connect the two? (the exhaust manifold and exhaust connect on the fazer).
Any help would be much appreciated,
I,m not that familair with the Fazer, but I do know that the exhast manifold is one piece, and the pipe is one piece. It does sound like something was defective. As far as the gasket goes,it's not uncommon for those to crack. To better understand you situation, post pictures if you can. I'm sure after seeing what happen someone can give you a more definitive answer.
