Standard cylinder base gasket thickness WR200?
« on: August 20, 2018, 10:04:12 PM »
Can anyone tell me the standard base gasket thickness please?  I want to make sure I have one in my hands before I take anything apart :)

Thanks, Andy.

At that price it would be worth buying a few spares.

It's also worth looking at the complete gasket kits on eBay. Every now and again you see them wrongly listed or priced incorrectly.

Cheers,

Dave.

My first choice would be OEM, but I've not found one in stock, or particularly cheap in the UK.
I can get a copy one here if I know what thickness to buy.

If cylinder and head are unmolested, you could probably run without a base gasket. Use some yamabond instead. You will get a bit of compression increase and more torque at lower rpms
Double check your piston /head clearance though.
I'm from Canada eh.

I'm told that standard is 0.64mm.  I'll go with 0.5mm.
