Good afternoon, gentlemen. Would anyone know where i could get a top end gasket set for my 98 Trophy 1200? Id hate to have to buy a complete gasket set for $250, just for the top end, and i also hate to buy each one individually. Let me know, and have a great day.

Good evening gentlemen. Its looking like i might finally get to start work on my project "Resurection 2". After being sent the wrong headgasket, then having one put on back order, i do believe i have one - the right one coming this time. I have a question i think you guys can help me with..i read that on the black motor, the head gaskets that came from the factory were junk, so they made better ones so that the failure wouldnt keep occurring. Im not sure exsactly what brand gasket i have coming, but i know it aint OEM, so is there some sort of preparation i have to do with the aftermarket gasket. Some of the guys were talking about some sort of a sealer, and i was always taught to not use anything on head gaskets. This is a one shot deal with me, so im gonna do this to the best of my ability( cause if it fails, ive gotta buy another motor, but dont tell my wife). Its been way too long getting this done, and i wanna ride her in the worst way(heres your opening guys, let it rip). So please let me know if theres any little tricks to do on this Beast. Thanks for your time Gents. Scotty Bates

Well most new gaskets (were needed ?) come with either a built in rubber seal on them or a surface that seals under pressure and heat , if you realy want to add a sealer then you need to use something like Hermitite blue which does not go hard it stays semi soft , dont use one that goes hard or use rubber gasket seal !!
Other wise just clean the surfaces up as smooth as possible and away you go .
