are they needed

Postby redwingrider » Tue Jul 24, 2012 11:06 am



I am replacing my head gaskets....and i bent 2 of the guide or bolt flanges (pt # 95700-06028).
i need to know (in a pinch because of lack of time) are they really needed, can i do without one on each side...sence i can use a head bolt to 'guide' the heads and gasket on...will the lack of one on each side mean 'a sloppy bolt'.....?? THanks once again

Accuracy counts..If your comfortable that you can keep the gasket aligned perfectly ( the reason for the guides) the go for it.

i figured i can use the longer top bolt can be the guide on the one side...
But if i can get a few over nighted in to me...that would be sweet..Happy riding to you all

redwingrider, that is a sweet color on you wing. I was actually thinking of going to something like it. Don't want to steel you color, but it is sharp. What color is it called? Something like a candy apple red with a hint of crab apple kinda.
