    5812474 Gasket no longer available?

    Hello,

    Occasional lurker who has learned a lot from this site, such as where to get the Ficht EMM repaired (three different skis!).

    I have ordered from Babbits a long time ago for the same part below (5 or 6 years ago).

    I have a 2002 Virage TXi (USA model; 3 cylinder red top direct injected engine, bone stock). The water jacket cover gasket has pushed it's way out and now leaking. (Item 20 on the crankcase diagram W025198C/D/I)

    The part numbers I have found are:

    Replaced by 5812474

    Original part number 5812011

    All the online parts websites list this parts as no longer available.

    Besides using RTV gasket maker, any suggestions on where to get this gasket? Are common parts for this ski becoming uncommon? I know it's a 13 year old machine, but they both (I own two) run and look awesome.

    eBay has a few.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I did find them available on Australian parts websites (I'm in the USA). "No shipping quotes are available at this time".

    I did pick up two on eBay. It scares me that these immaculate skis might become anchors without simple parts

    funny, I sold three of those in the last month.

    crap, had I know it was discontinued.....

    unfortunate but shipping costs have gone out of control this year

    I recently paid $20 for a 4 oz package from riva and even a short from WSM costs me $15.

    I'll have to see how my plotter does cutting gasket material this winter.

    Are you finding yours leaking in the Spring? Perhaps your not getting all the water out when stored over winter and it freezes and expands??

    Cheers!
