I dont think the teflon couplers are compressible. You need to buy a smaller coupler, or just buy a length of silicone coupler and cut a piece off. The silicone is very flexy and will stretch. May not last as long as the teflon but minimize the gap between the header and pipe and it will last a long time.

If you are using the sping clamps, then you can take them off and use a regular screw type clamp (hose clamp) that you can get at Canadian Tire or any hardware store. Just take the teflon coupler with you so that you can get the correct size. Put it on tighten it up and run the motor to warm the exhaust parts up. Then retighten the clamps. Go fly and have fun.
