i want to know if there are various thickness headgaskets like you can get with some 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.

With a risk of making a fool of myself I belive there is diffrent gaskets to get.
Yamaha often use a gasket that is made out of a couple of layers and I think You can get diffrent amount of layers.
Ask your local guy to check out Yamaha kit options......

Hope You will find what You are looking for.

Cometic was making head and base gaskets of varying thickness, but last time I checked the base gaskets were the only ones available. Compressed thickness of the standard Cometic is .035" to allow zero deck setups.
