Who sells these. OEM gaskets collapse and leak.

Well battlescooter DID sell them,
but it seems that from this old thread that you (among others) thought the price was too high after shipping:

viewtopic.php?f=30&t=20727
There was a member in that thread making a few brass ones

Not sure anyone sells a ready to go part at this date, but the solid copper wire method that BRed perfected is a good alternative.


I'll try to find it..

Fixed mine originally under warranty -- they replaced it with a slightly larger yamaha gasket.

I had planned on using one of these kits when / if it goes bad again:

http://japan.webike.net/products/21367173.html

http://japan.webike.net/products/1792083.html

Not sure which one to order, but I figure for both it's only $16 plus shipping, plus tariffs.

If you search other threads, there used to be several pictures showing home made workarounds.

the upper right looks like the ones that come with a BEAMS exhaust.....
its an aluminum washer sandwiched between a grommet that covers both sides.

I figured it would burn out in no time but whatever that soft grommet is made out of stays soft and pliable.

I was looking for the old post I made on how to use the thrust ring instead of a gasket (or even with a gasket) but its been deleted.
