2012 DX exhaust question.

I took my stock exhaust off and noticed that there were no exhaust gaskets installed. The cylinder was tapered and the stock exhaust header was tapered to fit. When I installed the gaskets I got from Harley and it also installed the Vance and Hines competition 2 to 1 system and started the bike up both the cylinders started to smoke where the headers were installed. Could this be because I installed gaskets when there weren't any stock gaskets?

there must have been gaskets in there.they can be difficult to see and look like part or the head.the tapered part you can see is the gasket.

Turns out I didn't look closely enough. Got the old gaskets out and new ones in, everything's good to go. Thanks for the help!Click image for larger version
