head gasket discontinued?

Postby urbanmadness » Sun Feb 14, 2016 12:45 am



So I went to my Mother Honda dealer today to order a new head gasket, and I was told it was discontinued. I did see them at Bike Bandit.

Anybody confirm that Mother Honda has indeed discontinued the head gaskets? I know I have purchased them as recently as 6 months ago.

I don't know, every place I looked online still has them. I've had one of the jackasses that works the parts counter at my local dealer tell me something I need is discontinued or not in stock when I went down there when a different guy I talked to on the phone said the opposite.

Is this for an 82? Cyclemax still shows them: http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche.com ... EAD%20ASSY.
