Kind of upset, one never had an issue with tusk parts. However about five hours in, the base gasket let go while at the far end of the dunes. My bike was pissing oil like a toddler pisses their pants. Had to push it back 2ish miles through deep sand.

Great gaskets, poor packaging
Gaskets are great, but the packaging they come in makes it almost impossible to remove them without damaging the gaskets.

Good quality amazing price.
A head gasket is what i need.I ordered the full tusk top end gasket kit for around the same price as a oem head gasket. Wish the packing it came in wasn't bent up. It looked like a half pipe.

I always go with Tusk gaskets for rebuilds. Never had a fitment issue or a leak and they are the cheapest option.

Does this come with different base gaskets to set the x dimension on KTMs?
Sam M on Jan 2, 2018

Will this work with 87mm Wiseco piston xr400r?
Kris L on Mar 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would bet that it would. I had my top end off recently and I think the head gasket actually seals on the cylinder and not the steel sleeve, so if the cylinder is stock or similar then it should fit
I just bought the tusk top end gasket kit for my 2004 TRX400ex and the kit came with small O-rings in a small packet with vavle guide seals and other O-rings for the adjustment caps. These small O-rings are for what? Thanks!!
Shon H on Mar 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If your head has rocker arms they most likely go to the shafts that the rocker arms pivot on. If you take those shafts out they may be part of that assembly. Hope this answers your question.
Does this kit include the two power valve cover gaskets?

2003 kx 125
michael a on Jan 7, 2017

A shopper on Apr 3, 2017

dustin R on Jul 23, 2019

I got this for my 2000 cr125. Came with two base gaskets. Do I use both?
Benjamin M on Jan 24, 2019

Does this comes with exhaust gasket and o rings? I have a 14 ktm 250 sx.thanks
rollden g on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it does not come with exhaust gasket (copper crush washer) or the pipe rubber o- rings. There are 4 small o-rings need for the power valve that are needed also that it doesn’t come with (You can get them at an auto parts store). I’ve ordered other gasket kits and they don’t have them either??

Does this include the power valve gaskets for a 09 KTM 250 XC-W?
Spencer J on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My kit for a Husaberg TE300 2013 came with the power valve gaskets, so I think yours would too. Be careful with the amount of torque you use on the screws, these power valve gaskets are pretty stiff and can split if you do them up too hard.
I got what looks to be a shaft seal in my kit for my 2006 YZ250f, but for the life of me, I can't find where it goes. Can anyone help?
Terry S on Mar 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This kit may cover earlier models that had a external compression release. It would not be used on your bike.
If I have a big bore kit on my 450r do I use stock head gasket or do I need one for the size of the bore?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The head gasket is the only one you should need, and the company that supplies the big bore kit should supply you with it. All the other gaskets should be ok.
How do I know what’s face up when I replace that green gasket ? Or doesn’t it matter ?
Rodney K on Jul 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The gasket should only fit one way, it shouldn't matter which side is up as long as all the holes line up properly.
does the Tusk top end gasket kit for a DRZ400SM come with metal base and metal head gaskets? does kit include valve stem seal?
eric s on Jul 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I dont know about your exact bike, I ordered this kit for my 92 kx500 and was not very impressed. The head gasket leaked coolant out and into my cylinder, washing away all my lubricating oil causing pretty severe scratching to my brand new replated cylinder wall. I order another tusk gasket thinking it was just a bad one, that one leaked as well. So after tearing my engine out twice I went with an OEM gasket and had no issues after that. You get what you pay for I guess. Sorry if that wasn’t helpful, just my experience
Is the valve cover gasket metal or paper?
Peyton D on Jun 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: the gasket between the cylinder and the case is paper the gasket between The Head And the cylinder is metal the valve cover gasket does not come in this kit and it is rubber and purchased separately
Is the ignition cover gasket a rubber type? Paper type sucks on these . 2000 xr100
Christopher Y on Jun 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It would be paper type
What gaskets and seals come with it for a 2006 ktm 250 xc 2 stroke? I need the 4 rubber o rings for the power valves will this have those?
cj j on May 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It should come with all the seals necessary to do a complete top end. I bought this gasket kit for my 14 250f and it had everything I needed to do the job
Is there water pump cover gasket included in this kit for a 2003 ktm 450sx?
Wes S on Mar 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: the only gaskets included in this kit are the ones that will need to be removed during a top end replacement, since you do not need to remove the water pump cover during a top end replacement, the gasket will not be included. i suggest either buying a tusk complete gasket kit or a tusk water pump rebuild kit if you need the water pump cover gasket.
valvel guide seals come with kit for 13 kx 250f?
Dale n on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. The kit I got for my klr650 came with the guide seals but it also listed them in the description. For your kx250f it does not list them as part of the kit.
What is the larger lip seal for? I just did my top end and I have an extra seal I don't know where it goes...

The kit should have a list of OEM part numbers for what it's replacing.
Christian N on Apr 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Worked great no issues, everything fit.
