Resourceful, and maybe my only option.  None of the bike shops around here, or any of the Auto-zone/Advanced-autos have it.  Not the sort of grey, metal looking tape I was looking for anyways.

Ace, so just cut a strip off of the beer can and use it like a collar around the header-pipe's end?  I'd imagine a little air would still sneak out, but maybe that's no big deal.

Auto-Zone has an aluminum tape that will do the job. I used it on my pipe/muffler joint. It worked quite well. I think it's called muffler tape.

I think I'll try those gaskets.  Can I use 3m Alluminum tape?

Baird, what was your method of application?  My header diameter is quite a bit smaller than the port opening.  You just lather it up around the header pipe?  Easy to clean out if you need to remove the pipe again?

Thanks.

thoroughly clean port and pipe with small brass brush and then wipe down with rubbing alcohol.
run about a 3/16" bead  around outside diameter of pipe at end, then insert and tap in with rubber mallet....
I guess I should say that the rest of the exhaust should be attached but loose....
then start aligning and tightening everything werking your way back. Should only take a few minutes...
then if there is too much excess sealant or it is uneven, it can be smoothed.
now fer the hard part; use some self control and let it dry and cure for 24 hours.

You can take the header pipe to a local muffler shop and have them expand it a bit or use a strip of pop can along with some silicone.
