how do you get the nova header to fit the picco engine? the nova header seems smaller than the picco header, but i cannot find a thinner seal.

the ofna part i got for this was thicker than the stock seal.

Some drops of oil (after run) will help to put it together. I always use some to put the nova header to the engine.

I oil the gasket (outer edge) and then place the gasket in the header first. Thereafter, I place the header with gasket already in it on the engine. Try to apply even force for best fit.

I've always liked Piccos, though I haven't run one since the G1 Pro. The KSR before that was one of my favorites.
