84 Aspencade Head Gasket Overhaul

Postby j.maclean » Sat Jan 08, 2011 5:38 pm



Hey everyone. My wing is going in next week hopefully for a head gasket job and a number of other things. I am going to order the parts I need tomorrow. Should I buy a complete gasket kit to do the top end or is the head gaskets all I need? I am going through sabrecycle. Here is a link for the kit.

Any input would be great! Thanks

You don't have to wait long!! :) :)

You can buy whichever you like...just make sure that you LOVE doing the head gasket job, because if you use Saber Cycle gaskets, you'll be doing it again a lot sooner than you like!

Have a read through these links, then decide if you still want to do business with those crooks. :)

Well thanks for the warning guys. Looks like I won't be doing any business with them after all. My question now, is there any respectable online store for goldwing parts that any of you recommend??

I have used PartsnMore for a couple years now, including gaskets, and they have not only lots of hard-to-find parts for our bikes, but pretty decent prices, too.

Great, thanks again for the heads up. My total on the bill for sabre cycle was going to be almost 800 bucks, would not want to give my money to crooks. When doing a head gasket job, will I need a complete top end gasket kit or will that not be necessary and just buy the head gaskets?

I get my parts from Service Honda.

I have also used Bike Bandit.
