1982 GL1100 Engine Gasket kits

Postby bell206doc » Mon Sep 07, 2015 10:55 pm



Hello everyone, I have an 1982 GL1100 Standard that I have owned for 12 years, The bike has sat for the last 11 years in my shop.
Well I have been restoring it for the last several months and have came to the engine. I have tore down and am ready to reassemble the engine. I have already purchased the OEM head gaskets that everyone recommends, But I am torn on what Complete gasket kit to purchase. I have found Athena for $100 on Amazon and Vesrah for $180 on Dennis Kirk. Can someone shed some light for me on the better quality? from experience price isn't everything when it comes to quality. Thank You

I have used the Athena top end kit and have had no issues with it.
All the gaskets fit with no problems.
8000 miles later and I am still satisfied.
They are guaranteed to be as good, if not better, the OEM. Regards, Johnny
