    Intake gaskets- SBT vs. factory (lack of gasket sealant) 2002GPR12

    So I ended up ordering a SBT intake/carb gasket kit after finding out each OEM carb rack gasket was $30, and the entire SBT kit with carb base gaskets and airbox orings was $24.95.
    i was planning on cutting my own since I had some material kicking around the garage but decided to order them after looking at the old ones i pulled out, which had beads of sealant around the passageways which ran between the carbs on the rack...

    i got the new gaskets today, but they don't have the beads of sealant on them like the OEM ones...P/N appears correct, however the site i ordered them from showed the gasket with the beads of sealant, along with SBT's site...i assume this is just a newer (cheaper) version and the sealant is probably not critical.

    my question is, do you guys that work on these things bother with using any kind on sealant on the non OEM gaskets in this area? if so, would yamabond #4 be suitable? its the only stuff i have around at the moment

    2002 has a plastic insulator plate, so you have more gaskets than most.

    To answer your question, usually no sealant is needed with new gaskets, but with those you may want to put a thin layer of grease.

    Unfortunately it wasnt taken out of the package and pictured. If you flip the gasket over you will find the silicone on the other side, just like the OE. If it's not, we have an issue.
