    New Base Gaskets ? Price giving me a CARDIAC event!

    Rebuilding carbs on 2! GP1200s so I need SIX base gaskets that DID NOT come in the Mikuni kit with jets. I check them out and they are $30 EACH?! For a little piece of glorified paper?! Can I reuse them? Maybe add a little bit of sealant? If so, what kind sealant OR where can I find cheaper ones? I already shelled out over $400 for the rebuild kits.

    Thanks for any help,
    Dave

    Yeah, have to agree $30 for glorified paper gaskets is a bit of a stretch..

    These might fit the bill.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MIKUNI-44MM-...29047287&rt=nc

    OR these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MIKUNI-44MM-ULTIMATE-GREEN-METAL-CORE-CARB-BASE-GASKETS-PACK-OF-10-/301629047287?hash=item463a7e01f7

    I'd certainly consider using them.
    - I would use "threebond 1211" on them just for piece of mind..
