This a new thing has loads of paper gaskets before and not one of them through...
Putting sealant on a gasket is definitely not a new thing
I know but iv always had to put it on myself never had one come like this out the packet
I'm not too sure about quad gaskets but in the gasket world it's definitely a common thing I work on Industrial machines for living and most gaskets we do have sealant on them it's more of a placeholder so the gasket doesn't slide more than anything I believe
If that's for your blaster, you should never run paper gaskets , should be using OEM base gasket, them paper ones leak like crazy
Ive had a paper gasket get sucked right into the transfer on a heavily ported blaster. Never again.
It a temp for a couple of months until I get a stroker crank
That's an older oem gasket 96-02
Before that they were blue with sealant or black.
I still recommend putting sealant on the other side too. Never hurts and never leaks
Yamaha went with the thicker fibe/coated style for 03+
The thicker base gaskets for 03 raise the cylinder 1mm
I truly believe people should learn their own lessons from their own mistakes. Rock on dude.
No matter if you put sealant on both sides, unless you seal the edges the paper gasket will deteriorate when in contact with fuel and break down.
Only yesterday was a post put up with a vid of a paper gasket leaking.
OEM or Cometic gaskets only for this little black Duck..
U shouldnt use any sealer on a base gasket
