    Replacing head gasket on 2000 waverunner 2100 xl Limited

    I noticed water leaking out the back cylinder between the head and cylinder after replacing a top cover gasket. I did re use the old head gasket. (Guessing that was my problem) I wanted to know what the proper way to do it is. I read somewhere i should re surface the head on a sheet of glass or a slab of granite using a wet 1200 grit sand paper, and something about marine grease? Also what is the proper torque for the head bolts. I tightened mine to 15 ft-lb then 25 ft-lb following the numbers on the head in order from 1 - 24. . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you PM me your email, I'll send you the XL1200Ltd manual which shows the order and torque settings.

    very good gesture, but the spec and torque pattern is written on the top of the head
