If you have a stock bike you probably have a large squish measurement and you will pick up low and mid range power with little loss in top end if you use a thinner base gasket. If you have any ridge at the top of the cylinder you do not want to use a thinner base stack than what was in there previously because of possible ring snag at TDC.

While the factor stacks gaskets with few issues, I prefer the single gasket over a stack. Another option is to use some spray tack to glue together multiple gaskets.

I've still never gotten a clear answer what that clear plastic "gasket" is for. I had never seen one before in other top end kits, I've never used it.

Is anybody running it?

Thanks. I think I'll go with the 1/32 gasket. I think it's close nough and I prefer one over multiple layers. No ridges to worry about, but I don't really have a need to alter the performance characteristics.

Typically if you have a plastic or aluminum shim It Needs a gasket on both sides to seal.

Do yourself a favour and see how the gaskets match up to the transfers, all of the ones I've had have overlapped into the transfers by about 3-4mm, not good for flow so cut them back!
