    Question Carb to Intake Gasket--Reuse?

    Thanks in advance for your help. What are the thoughts on reusing the gasket, carb to intake. I rebuilt carbs several years ago and did reuse then (advice to do so by Riva). Has worked fine and need to clean/rebuild again for new SBT engine and those gaskets do not come with either the install or carb kits. At $20 a pop ( 3 needed ), I am certainly looking for ya'll expert advice and opinions.

    Again, thanks as always for everyones willingness to share your knowledge!!

    I reuse gaskets if they are in good shape.

    I found these for the GPR much better deal then the OEM ones I use OEM gaskets for everything else but these just make more sense for the carbs.

    I've ordered a LOT of gaskets from Troy (Superjett-113 on most of the forums). He's a gasket technologies dealer. Of all the gaskets I've bought I haven't seen a difference between OEM and Gasket technologies... This has been with 2 gprs, 1 superjet, 1 kawi stxr, and a 787 XP...
    So, something else to consider too...
