    it is a TOP END gasket kit

    Comments about Athena Top End Engine Gasket Kit:

    Just make sure this is what you want. There's no alternator gasket, no oil pan gasket: just cylinder base gasket and up. Does include an oil dip stick o-ring (has anyone ever had to replace this?) and two other o-rings whose purpose I'm still trying to identify. There's also 16 o-rings if you have to replace valve guides. I discarded the valve stem seals in favor of more durable Vitron seals. All told, given the limited number of top end gaskets I actually needed, it may have been less expensive to buy them individually. I will apply Gasgacinch to the head gasket to be sure of a good seal and torque to 30 ft-lbs: we'll see how well it goes.

      • Q:

        does this kit include the (4) half moon rubber gromets on both sides of the valve covers, and the timing chain/ valve covers (dohc) gaskets? on a 1978 KZ-1000 A2 (1050 cc )?

          A:

          Thank you for your question! This kit would not include those grommets or the head cover rubber seal. Those items would be OEM items only. The Athena kits usually come with everything but those gasket/rubber parts are not included in the kits in most cases. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

          A:

          In my experience these kits do not come with those orings or seals for the water pipes. Depending on the year make & model we may be able to get a complete list of parts that are included in the kit for your bike as each kit is different. Please feel free to give us a call at 1-888-339-3888.

          Thansk for your question! This kit here would be for the stock bore size. We would not carry any oversize bore bits for this machine.
