Muffler prolblemo

Anyone know how to get my muffler to fit better on my pipe?  The pipe is a bit smaller then the muffler and it leaks pretty bad hits my legs at idle.  And sounds like ****.

just a thought.

How about aluminum tape, A few wraps should seal it up enough then trim the excess so it is unseen.  Wrap the smaller pipe before sliping the can on..

Let us know if it works. There is also sealant that most all auto parts stores sell that is specifically for exhuast. We had that problem on EvilTwin's Rc51 when they tired to switch the cans. Used the correct sealant. and it worked great.
