    Flame Arrestor Gasket

    I was pulling my carbs off last night to do a rebuild this week and when I pulled off the flame arrestor I noticed the gasket was cracked (not sure if it was already cracked or if me pulling it off cracked it). In any case, I need a new one (ASAP).

    I guess I've got three options:

    1) "Make my own" (I'd rather not)
    2) Buy one from someone on here (anybody got one they can part with?) - I'd prefer this method because shipping would probably be cheaper coming from somebody on here.
    3) Get one from RIVA through Jerry.

    Any thoughts on the options?

    Thanks!

    I just picked up a set of prok flame arrestors with mount. Is there sposed to be a gasket between the mount and the carb?

    I can't answer you for sure, but there is definitely a gasket between the stock flame arrestors and the carbs. I would certainly hope if you needed a gasket it would have been provided with the kit since it would need to be a custom gasket.

    Im interested in this answer too since i have a set of prok's but do not have adapters yet so they are sitting on my desk at home. I would like to know if i need to buy anything but the adapters to install them.

    IMHO! the air is going to follow the path of least resistance , so not using a gasket at the base of a Ocean pro F/A or at the adapter base for the other style F/A's just isn't a big deal, as long as the mating surfaces are decent

    I ran Riva adapters with no gaskets. How would you fit a gasket on there anyway? 3 individual pieces? IMHO-doesnt matter

    If I don't have a gasket, I clean the surfaces good and use a thin layer of Three Bond1211 or just RTV silicone. That is not a critical seal, its only to prevent fuel/oil seepage outside of the carb/Flame arrestor(you know how oily some of our Yamaha's get inside the F/A). Alot of flame arrestor kits call for RTV anyway. Don't fret about a perfect new and expensive gasket.

    That's all I did.
