Question Reed Block Gasket???

     

If you don't have a reed block gasket in place, could that effect how it runs? I wouldn't think so, but just checkin. Cause my bike never had one and the complete gasket sets don't have one for it...so if i need one, im gonna have to make my own.

Yes, it can have a huge effect. It can introduce an air leak which will cause lean jetting and possible engine failure. You should be able to make one though so no worries. Good luck.

Does it use a gasket or an o-ring?

Some use gasket, some use o-ring. You do not want to just bolt the block straight to the cases with no sealing device.

If I remember correctly my RM465 didn't use a gasket. Get some Yamabond or Threebond semi-drying sealer and use it. DO NOT use Permatex RTV as it will fail. Any Yamaha or Honda dealer should have the right stuff.
