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

I just got off cheap the last time i put one on mine. I went with tusk cause of a race that weekend. It didn't last well at all. But there is always that talk "this one isn't as good at this one" So i just thought id see what other riders perfer

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.
