high temp silicone as exhaust o rings?

I have done this on an '09 xc 250 and an '01 yz 250. On the last re-build of the YZ, I could tell the difference easily when using old exhaust seals.

I have a 2013 KTM 200 XC-W and unfortunately, my exhaust flange looks like the picture of Joe M's above. Do I REALLY need to get a new flange? Luckily, it looks like it's a replaceable part on my bike. But would rather save the extra $100+ Also, with new o-rings, will that seal up properly?

probably closer to 8-10 rides. I can usually get an hour of hard riding with a tank of gas. Same with racing mx. 2 10 minute practices then 2 15 minute motos.
10 hours? That's IT? That's 2, MAYBE 3 rides. And then you have to change the O-rings? That seems...not quite right. But thanks for input.
Any comments about the scored flange?

Red high temp over good o-rings lasts many months.
I use the stuff from Harbor Freight and it last until I take it apart...usually about a year. I put a small bead between the two orings and slide her in. Really helps seal things up there, even when the pipe gets a bit kinked up.
