installing exhaust

I found a used in good shape Akra full system for my 07 10r. Am I going to need to get gaskets to get it installed? Sorry for the newb queston, but I have never installed pipes on a bike before and the my local dealer is a POS that doesn't even stock air filters.

BTW my bike has little over 10K miles on it.

Given the low cost of flange gaskets, it is worth replacing them. Once they have been used, they should not be used again as they crush to provide a seal

I havent ever had to remove the pipes of my ten yet, but I guess they are the same as all the others. Make sure you note the way the retainers go back in. They are the half round bits with a flange lip. The lip goes to the front. ie the wide part away from the motor. A moron mechanic refitted my old gixxer 750 pies the other way, and the retainers just slid inside the flange and didn't tighten the pipes against the ports

Thanks I didn't now. Some manifold gaskets are reusible on cars. I just wanted to see if mine were good or if I need to order some gaskets so that they might get here when the pipes do.
