I'm curious to know if anyone has used high temperature silicon sealant to reseal viable intake seals. I find it odd that my XB uses a plumbing fitment designed for pressure neutral applications on a low pressure system. That said, its what we have to work with and when my seals came out they were actually in good condition apart from dirt build-up on the mating surface where the seal failed. My Ducati used silicone sealant everywhere and I still have plenty left and was tempted to use it. The reason being that so many folks have had new seals fail to seal. Even my Husabergs use silicone instead of exhaust gaskets and for the casings. So, my question is: has anyone tried using silicone or does anyone know why this might be a bad idea?
