muffler install

Going to take off the trc-d that came with the bike and install the stock muffler. I got all the bolts and the gasket, two questions.

1. ○Install the muffler body gasket until it is bottomed so that the chamfer side [C] feces exhaust pipe [D]
From the manual this makes it seem like one side of the gasket should point a certain direction, but it seems pretty uniform to me.

2. Any tips or tricks I should know in advance?

Thanks

Loosen up the header bolts so you have some play to make it easier on yourself

I would get new cylinder head/exhaust pipe seals so you have a fresh seal from to back, and any muffler flanges if applicable. It would be hell to put the OEM stock exhaust on and have backfires when you let off the throttle, just like 3rd party exhausts, lol. ymmv.

You know that there is a system that injects air into the exhaust, called 2nd air, and that it is responsible for those backfires? You're also aware that those backfires have always been there, just muffled down by the OEM muffler?
