    Re-Use of Yamaha metal gaskets, GP1200R

    Looking for some feedback on the ability to reuse some of the GP1200R metal gaskets. In the past I've had perfect results reusing SD 951 head gaskets with a dab of Hylomar spread on them to enhance seal.

    I just tore one down, needs crank and ctr cylinder/piston. Trying to keep the cost of the job under control, and $200 for gaskets seems excessive(while the ones that came out are in really dam good shape and not torn up AT ALL).

    I'm generally not one to cut corners, but I'm also not into pissing money down the drain, potentially tossing out a bunch of fine used gaskets.

    FYI, the rubberized coating is *not* ruptured or torn on any of my gaskets. The ski is completely stock, and the only potential mod is a chip for the CAT, which is broken out in the center.

    Thansk guys.

    I re-use the gaskets all the time, as long as the coating is still good on them and not worn. I always apply a light coat of synthetic marine grease when I assemble.

    That's what I was thinking, but wanted to check. Thanks much!

    grease works well as long as you don't have any damaged areas on the gaskets
