    Do I need new gaskets if I just want to check the cylinder condition?

    I have a 97 polaris SL 700. I want to pull the heads off to see the condition of the cylinder and heads. Do I need new gaskets when putting the heads back on or can I re-use the gaskets?

    So it's fine to pull them off and put them back on? Or do the o-rings get destroyed when pulling the heads off?

    i usually clean any residue off the old o-rings,then lightly coat them with some type of grease to hold them in place when reinstalled

    So if I wanted to pull the heads off my Fuji motor, then I'd have to replace the head gaskets?
