  • Yes they made different thickness head gaskets. But only one thickness base

  • GASKET-HEAD,STEEL,T=0.4 P/N 11004-1209

  • GASKET-HEAD,T=1.0 P/N 11004-1276

  • GASKET-HEAD,STEEL,T=0.2 P/N 11004-1187

  • I think they only fit 89-04 500's

  • Thanks

  • no worries

  • On my old 88 KX500 I used to run 2 base gaskets with out any issues. On my 02 I tried the optional thick head gasket but didnt like it and went back to stock. Every time I used a thick head gasket it would seep coolant. Head is flat as well as the cylinder. Went back to stock and no issues. Beats me!
