Tonight when I get out of work, I'm going to remove my old exhaust and replace it with the new. It was suggested to me to replace the old gaskets and use a Permatex hi-temp sealant on the new gasket. Do I use this sealant on both sides of the gasket?

If you use the sealant just place it on one side. I did my pipes with Morton Sweepers and did not use any sealant at all. Just made sure that the pipes where mounted straight and when done used a long neck lighter to check for leaks. You will use the light and watch the flame... if it blows to and from the flange you have a leak. Just a easy quick check that I saw on here. Enjoy the new pipes.

I'm not a wrench but I am pretty sure you should not use sealant. The gaskets I think are soft part lead, they will form to the head port, without any help.

The gaskets are compression fit, so when you tighten them down they will compress into place.
You need to re-check them after you ride and heat them up
No where in the service manual does it state to use any gasket sealant..
