    Exhaust manifold flange gasket

    I failed to remove the exhaust manifold flange before sending the head out for a bore. It came back with the flange but no gasket. No one in town has one and I can't get one by the weekend. Can one use high temp RTV silicone in its place or must you have the gasket. This is the 3 bolt hole gasket between the flange and the head. I really want to ride this bike this weekend

    Or just use straight silicone as a temp fix...
