HI there friends, 

 

Got a question for ya'll. I am about to remove the header on the yz, as I need to in order to get the oil filter out (Dr.D full system), and am wondering if I should apply some clear liquid high temp gasket sealer to the engine side and where the header fits in the the tail unit? 

 

Thank you

No. Not in either location. 

 

BTW, normally, you can simply loosen the header at the head and pry it up out of the way of the upper bolt without removing it.
