well hick has helped me to conclude that the base gaskets are the same for the YZ & WR engines.

what i need to know now is this;

are the cylinder head gaskets the same or can you buy various thickness ones like you can with Honda's?

can someone find this out please? i will ask my "lewkl" dealer but expect it to be all too much effort for him.

Thicker? Forget it!
You don't want to lower the comp on the blue bitch and turn it into a DRZ or XR wanna-be do ya?? :D :)

You will have to check valve-piston clearances if go thinner.

Ohh.. BTW.. I have no idea if you can get different size joints ofr them! :) :D
