Has anyone tried the Caltric version of this gasket?
Yamaha 3YF-14714-00 or Yamaha 4WM-14755-00
Amazon has a decent picture of this part, as does ebay.
These gaskets are reinforced with what appears to be SS wire rather than the graphite cheapo Chinese ones I bought on ebay-like others mine came mashed from long postal ride-thus I'm looking again.

I have that one on ebay watch but took another look and the Yamaha OE gaskets look more durable. I also saw another OE Yamaha gasket thats copper and what looks like asbestos? I lean toward the SS wire embedded one for now- I see it from Caltric and as an OE Yamaha parts in pictures with the wire mesh reinforcement.

I used the Yamaha one with good results. It fits very snug over the head pipe. It helped to file a chamfer and clean every bit of old graphite off the head pipe. Lots of wiggle and twist but all went well. I would use the Yamaha again.

I am still having good results with moto amore bushing
The moto amore bushing which is still available is working as it should it appears to be a one time fix on my scooter.
