I bought a new Sito Plus Pipe for my ET4 but have not put it on yet. I see on page 48 of http://www.vespaatlanta.com/pdfs/ET4Parts.pdf that there is part #11 a "Packing". Is this a Gaskett that needs to be replaced or is this just a 4 bolt job ?

Yes, it's a gasket used to seal the head pipe connection at the exhaust port. It's still a "4-bolt job". You can reuse your original part.

Thanks for the reply Gary "Addicted"
I just wasn't sure if i needed gaskett sealer or something or if the old one would mangled. But it seems like it's a dry gaskett.

Thanks

packing
I have 2 Et-4s, no packing with either the stock pipe OR the sito Plus I put on 1000 miles ago. Am I missing something? No, there's no exhaust leaks or anything. Never has been.
