XR650L Stock Exhaust Install Help

Hi gang:
My bike came with V&H muffler. I thought it was too loud, so I replaced with FMF Q4. Although it idles a lot quieter, it still makes a racket (albeit slightly less) when you get on it! I recently repacked but didn't seem to make much of difference.
In the end, I've decided to put the stock muffler back on. Fortunately, the guy gave it to me when I bought bike. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have everything I need!
From what I can see from stock photos, it is missing the clamp to fasten it to header. It also seems like the compression part of the muffler that slips over the header is too big. It is the stock header (and has not been modified as far as I know). I'm not sure if there is some type of gasket I need to fill the void???
Any advice appreciated!

You are missing a wire mesh exhaust gasket.

Follow-up

I received the gasket and clamp. Remarkably, Honda doesn't include the screws for the clamp! I found some stainless ones at local hardware (M8 with 1.25 pitch in case you need them!).

Be sure to put some anti-seize on the bolts if you ever want to take the muffler off at a later date.
