can i re use the head gasket on my 951?
well i bought a full gasket kit form some douche bag company and they sent me the wrong kit, for a di plus missing many parts, so i am out the money for it and need to get this stupid motor back together. are the head gaskets re usable? mines split between the two layers but looks ok. i need to get this ski out of my friends house but cant till i get it together. ive been waiting for a month now for these gaskets and need to get this ski out. my ski is a 98 gsxl 951 carb

It is not recommended to reuse gaskets especially head gaskets but I have seen it done with no ill effects.
So on your head be it !

Try copper spray, many use it so they don't have to buy new head gaskets all the time.

i would rather not but my ski has been at my buddies garage for 3 months, fixed one thing then, the motor detonated, by the tiem i got all the parts it was already two months, ordered a wsm gasket kit for the 951 on the 8th of august and till this day the a hole wont send me the proper gasket kit and ebay is taking forever to take care of this crap. i would of sent the wrong kit back i had have already installed the base gasket, and torqued it down with the old head gasket, the guy kept saying he is gonna send the right ones and never did. so now i am disputing the matter........... in the mean time the ski is all apart in my buddies garage

Parkers pretty good, but takes so loooong for shipping to the east coast.
