    Base Gaskets ?

    Hello all, I'm going to replace my drooling base gasket soon. Was considering the ProCycle top end gasket kit. Called them and they said it is an aftermarket brand.
    Should I stick with genuine Yamaha parts ? I was thinking about buying the ProCycle kit and also buying and using the Yamaha Base gasket (2010).
    Recommendations will be appreciated.

    Thank you kindly, MAC

    I have that gasket kit. No problems so far. I do usually prefer OEM gaskets though. Just make sure that base gasket is the new and improved one....

    I use Athena cylinder foot gaskets and never had problems..
    The number is: S41 0485 006 067
    But I am not sure, that them available in the US.

    Don't forget to change/replace:
    - o-ring cylinder
    - o-ring oil line (the small one)
    - cylinder head gasket (must have, if you remove the head)
    - o-ring oil line
    -->> this one:

    I used this from ebay for my 68mm piston:

    Athena Complete Gasket Kit for Yamaha TW200 Trailway 88 96 | eBay

    And this for the 70mm piston:

    Yamaha YFM 250 YFM250 Moto 4 Engine Motor Gasket Kit | eBay


    You can get a new 67mm Wiseco high compression piston that should pretty much drop in. It comes with rings and wrist pin and the engine is apart anyway.

    Search ebay: 4292M06700

    My '06 has 11,500 miles on and is running perfectly.
    I 'm on a bit of a budget but am tempted to put a Wiseco piston in there. I would go at least to 67.5mm.
    I suppose I could hone it myself. On the other hand I probably have another 11.5k on the original top end.
    Probably be better off spending the money on a new seat. I could really feel the difference then.

    best regards, MAC

    You will need the correct hone, not glaze breaking hone but a precision hone, and you will need micrometer to measure with.

    I but a 68mm piston in one TW and a 70mm in another TW and I think the 68mm is working out better. Given that, your plan for a new piston I would say avoid the 70mm piston.

    I can't agree with you.
    I've used for along time the 70mm (and now 71mm) piston and I've never felt bad/strange.
