Z1000a Big bore head gasket

#1 PostAuthor: MikeSB6 » Wed Oct 17, 2018 4:35 pm

Hello,

the Z1000a I'm rebuilding has been fitted with a big bore kit so that the bore is now around 74mm. Is there a big bore head gasket available which will fit this?

Cheers, MikeJ

Either Debbens (01425 474628) or SPS http://www.suzukiperformancespares.co.u ... askets/64/ should be able to help with either an MLS or copper head gasket for youre size bore depending on what you want.

If it's a basic normally aspirated motor you want a Cometic cfm20 graphite fibre gasket.
Nick at Suzuki Performance spares can supply this one which suits 1075cc (72mm ) to 1135cc (74mm) bore.

Don't bother with copper unless you are racing and the MLS need a very clean and flat surface to seal which you will unlikely have unless the block and head have been resurfaced.
