    I'm going to be installing a new exhaust and headers from Todd, and I'm assuming I shouldd not reuse the original manifold gaskets. Any idea what size or where I can find those? Thank you.

    Your bike's brand new. The existing gaskets should be fine. There's a lead-type gasket between the header and exhaust can that's pretty delicate, but I believe Todd's exhaust doesn't use a gasket there.

    on the parts manual it says there are two bushings that go where the cans meet the headers.

    I have recently installed the cross over and reverse meg from Todd (No words can describe it, thanks Todd). I can confirm that I did not reuse my gaskets. The new pieces are metal to metal.

    Thanks Brett, to confirm here (as well as email), my mufflers and full systems are metal to metal, and you will reuse the head gaskets in the head.
