    IMHO no gaskets should be reused.... But many have and do. For as cheap as they are go oem new. Cheapest I find them is actually on ebay by a seller named cslem. also has great prices and super fast shipping

    Is that all the gaskets i need that i listed in first post? Or is there more i need? All im doing is putting carbs and reeds on and dropping it in the ski n putting exhaust on. Its a fully built mptor from island racing. Just unsure if im forgetting any gaskets

    The reed cages have their own gaskets on them and you can put a thin layer of grease on both sides before putting the plate on. The exhaust gaskets are multi layered and can be reused. if the Teflon is flaking off you can give them a coat of spray copper coat. never had any leaks on the exhaust so far and reuse them a lot unless they are really bad or someone replaced them already with the paper SBT ones then i put OEM back on it.

    Just ordered most of the gaskets i need. I noticed on my old plates it look like there was to felt material gaskets on the reed and intake plates? But i cant find them on any oem parts website. Can anyone help me ind these?
