Hey guys ,
I recently removed my exhaust header now i'm ready to put it back on. My question is can I use my same exhaust header gaskets or do I have to buy new ones ?
I'm using the same header
Thanks for the help

Sure,dont it lots of times. Just check for leaks (fire it up) BEFORE going thru all the hassle of re-installing everything.

They dont last forever,because they are a "crush type" gasket. So dont think cranking up those bolts super tight will fix a leak.

If yer not in a hurry,and cash is no prob,then order some. I had to once,with about a dozen header swaps on 2 Busa's.

My "rule of thumb" is if it falls out(gasket/s) or can be easily pry'd out with any bike header removal,yer usually good to go. If they are rusted in place or rotten well then....off you go to the parts store.
