Is there one for an 08 yz450f? Just got a powerbomb header in the mail and I did not see anything in the packaging.

Or pop down to the hardware store and buy a foot of 8ga bare copper grounding wire. Cut it to fit end to end in the gasket pocket in the head. The wire seals just fine and doesn't overhang into the port the way the OEM gasket does.
