removing/installing oil pan zx10 questions

hey whats up guys, this is my first project on my bike , i cracked my oil pan so i took it off last night and going to take it to get welded today. anyways my question is, are the gaskets from my exhaust re-usable or do they need to be replaced? if so , where can i find gaskets?? ive got a 2007 zx10 with full arrows exhaust, also any recommendations where to get my oil pan gasket (i know that needs to be changed)
thanks guys for the feed back, its my first time doing this type of work on a bike..
oh hey also do you guys recommend any type of lock tight or anything like that for my bolts, neverseize or anything? just trying to make sure i do it right.

I find it easier to go ahead and replace all gaskets than to discover a leak an repeat a job, but that's just me. I typically source parts online as most dealers will likely have to order parts anyway. Look up your own part numbers, it'll save you time when you call around looking for gaskets. I would comment on the Loctite issue but would rather not misinformed you as I don't know what the manual states. My experience says blue (medium strength) Loctite but I'm not positive.

Give the rest of the gang a chance to provide some input. The exhaust gaskets may not be totally necessary, I just have a habit of changing almost every gasket I touch.

I change my exhaust gaskets from time to time. I would say about every 3rd time the header is removed has worked fine for me

I come up with Kawasaki part # 11060-1103, and you need 4 of them at $4 each from ronayers. Might as well have one or two on hand as they're relatively inexpensive. Nothing sucks more than shutting down a job and heading to the parts counter!!!

I also wouldn't use any loctite on this job, them oil pan bolts only have a torque spec of 7 or 8 ft-lbs.
