    Chipped gasket mating surfaces... (exhaust manifold) 99' xl1200 (pv engine)

    What should I do now? I was dismantling the exhaust manifold to replace one cylinder (#3) and while I was using the air pressure hose to clean the water passages I evidentally caused a coupple of chips in the manifold surfaces.

    I seen the air do this to the first cylinder and it wasn't very deep or impact much of the gasket seating surface but as I kept using the air the same thing happend to the other cylinder... and then I realized it was not a good thing to do!

    I didn't realize these surfaces were that fragile and that 85psi air would cause this to happen. Is this repairable?

    Thanks for looking guys.....

    Dont risk the water intrusion! You can find a good used one on the board pretty cheap.
