Exhaust Pipe Temp?

Doing some repair work on an air leak for my mighty 250 Honda Magna. Eat your heart out.

There's a leak in the joints between the header / collector, and the collector/muffler. I need to match the right gasket material, or make my own. What would be the typical temperature of the pipe under normal conditions?

By the way, I live in China so no, I can't just run down to the bike shop and buy whatever 2000 degree ceramic paste they have lying around. My choices are limited.

Thanks!
