I am replacing a cracked exhaust manifold on my 1300r.Manual says replace all exhaust gaskets with new ones.If they look good can I reuse with permatex red?If not who has a good price on them.

As long as matting surfaces are clean and flat(no bends ,tears or blockedge) i reuse with loctite 503.. But that is my cheap ass... I know beerdart was making some killer gaskets not sure if he makes them for the exhaust.

save your time in the future and just replace them now since youre already there

last time i did cylinder work, my exhaust gasket came off clean (not missing any chunks) and no creases. i reused it but applied a coating of Permatex Ultra Copper High Temp RTV Silicone RTV Gasket Maker on both sides. Worked well. Also reused my base gaskets (metal) with Permatex Ultra Black High Temp rtv silicone gasket maker, thinly coated on both sides.

I don't reuse gaskets except for my head gasket. I believe in doing it right the first time. That's why I have never had a single problem with my ski.

I've reused exhaust gaskets with no issue.
