    I have removed and re installed the head on gprs several times w/o removing the stinger. Tip for you be shure the head bolts and there bolt holes are cleaned good befor you re instal the head. Re tork to factory specfications. Tommy Jordan

    White stuff is pst sealer. I use blue loc-tite on my head bolts. No need to washer the head bolts for .020 cut on head. You may need to open up the two holes on the pipe to head exhaust mount a little to be shur that you don't bind the stinger. Tommy Jordan
