    gp1300r gasket , oem or compatible ?

    i need a complete set of gasket for my rebuild .
    can i trust in compatible gasket or do i only use oem gasket ?
    a complete set of oem is about 250 300usd without shipping .
    do you have a preference about compatible brand, can i trust ebay gasket kit ?
    need some advice , thanks

    Take my word for it use OEM gaskets, I have not found an aftermarket one yet that was worth using. Boats.net has best pricing.

    use OEM, you don't need to replace them all, some of the gaskets can be reused (for example all of the exhaust pipe gaskets could be reused)

    I'll second for going with OEM gaskets after seeing the quality of the after market kits. Also second not buying the complete kit. From boats.net buying the gaskets for a 2003 GPR individually is cheaper ($353.39) verses buying the kit ($368.3. Appears the o-ring for the starter and seals for the power valve shafts are not included.

    I wouldn't imagine those cheapo gasket kits on Ebay are any good, in case that's what you're looking at.

    Probably all paper.

    I know there might be some mixed opinions on copper spraying the gasket, but i've never had a problem doing that, even on automotive headgaskets. It's cheap and the stuff is incredibly tough
