On my 2003 SV650 there has been change in sound from my exhaust lately. Sounds a bit more "clattery" than it should when slowing down. So I checked the bolts mounting the passenger pegs, the slip-on clamp, and the other clamps on the exhaust system. I torqued them to spec but the sound is still there.

So I am wondering, do I need to make gaskets for the exhaust system? Does the SV's exhaust have gaskets at all? I don't think it did, but that was 63K miles ago, so they could have dissentegrated.

I fixed it. I forgot that when the exhaust can was installed, the mechanics cut the original. So there must have been a gasket there which died recently.
