    1995 kawa 750 exhaust gasket does not look right.

    I am about to mount the exhaust manifold to a new engine and noticed that the exhaust gaskets have just a couple of 1/4 holes in them to pass water between the engine and exhaust manifold, who's water jackets are far larger and long and slotted. Unless the gaskets are supposed to meter the water flow, it sure looks like the gaskets will restrict flow.

    The gasket set came from sbt with the motor and look right in all other respects. In fact, the same style of gasket was on the old motor, but hey, it chunked a rod after 18 months, so its not really a good example. thanks for any advice.

    here is the pic, the holes in the gasket don't even come close to matching the water jacket slots in the manifold. These are SBT gaskets. Then, when the exhaust manifold hits the expansion chamber, that gasket has only a hole the size of a pencil lead, as though they are trying to meter just a small amount of water into the exhaust pipe. Maybe its that way on purpose, just seems dd given the size of the water jackets that were cast into the parts.
