Question Exhaust Bolts? What Exhaust Bolts?

So I noticed my exhaust making a bit of noise I grabbed it to see if it was loose and It detached from the bike... Both bolts from the rear portion are gone as well as a nut I believe. The front clamp portion is still there but is loose. Does anyone have the size of bolts I need or should I just get them from the dealer?

This bike is an 08 and the recall has been serviced regarding the loose torque on the bolts maybe kawi would supply them for free since evidently the issue was not fixed?

Also I have never had the exhaust removed before, should the gasket be replaced as well? I'm guessing it should be.

Thanks in advance.

All bolts and nuts are 8mm. Bolts are 8x20.

If you remove the exhaust carefully you may be able to save the gasket. Depends actually which gasket you mean. The one at the midpipe you may be able to save. It's also more expensive than the one at the head. The gasket at the head is best replaced when you remove it.
