What is the best Gasket?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm debating on which gasket kit I should get. I ride a RMZ-250 and have been looking for a Gasket kit and have been wondering if i should get Athena, Cometic, Or Moose Gasket kit.

Can anyone Recommend me which one to go with? Thanks!!!!

I had an Athena kit that worked fine, cosmetic has a good rep too. Porter torque specs and sequence(if there is any, most the time not) and having the right material/thickness gasket where necessary (some aftermarket don't do that) are the important parts

they're all fine. just prep and assemble properly and move on.

 

you're much better off asking the truly puzzling questions like "what's the best oil"?

I've had issues with Tusk gaskets also.

Hmmm....  I remember one of those brands included 3 different thickness base gaskets, and another only had one.  Sorry, but I don't recall which brand.

I personally like Athena and the reason is they offer different thickness for the base gasket. This is a very good tuning adjustment for compression and valve to piston clearance. For most everything else I normally use OEM or cometic

Have had no issues with tusk gaskets. Got them on both my bikes. Personally a gasket is a gasket to me.
