Between pipes. Mine is slightly different, kind of steel wool, but this one would do. Maybe I will also use exhaust cement from Autozone.

Full silicon doesn't burn and we've used it to seal intakes and exhausts before (on other bikes).

A bit of 12 gauge solid copper wire, tap the ends a bit to flatten, overlap the ends and form into a loop. I've used this as a quick cheap fix in lieu of an OEM gasket. You can flatten a bit with a bench vise and two small steel plates.

We have seen stainless wool catch fire by the way. I would use caution going that route.

Not to mention the possibility of contamination of valves/seals/rings from small particles of the steel/stainless wool. Not something I would want 10ft from a running engine.
