I'll openly admit that when i put a top end on a bike i just use the gaskets that come with the kit (cut to match the transfers, of course), and thats it. usually no headgasket, but thats after i make sure the head and cylinder have completely flat mating surfaces and that the piston wont hit the head. no headleaks.

but i'm curious as to what techniques people are using for their base gasket, intake, and exhaust seals. even with no airleaks that i can find, i still feel like i should try for an even tighter seal on anything i put together.

so whats the best formula? a combination of gaskets + red RTV? handmade gaskets in the mix? looking for pointers here.

i did a quick search on the subject and checked the wiki, but all i could find were either CASE sealant threads or HEAD sealant threads. neither of those are involved in this thread.
