There was a guy selling gasket sets from Japan on eBay, cruzinimage_uk, if you look through the forum or on tims pages he is mentioned, I purchase 2 full sets very good quality and a perfect fit.

Thanks dougindoors I did a search for him and got this contact detail: trymitsuo@cruzinimage.com Sadly the email bounced back. Came back to the topic and found that you had then put up his listing No 251574765197 Thanks I have contacted him just to verify that it will fit my A2 as its listed for the A1. Should be all good but best to ask if you don't know.

Cheers for now and thanks dougindoors for helping.

I have contacted the gasket guy through eBay, but he cannot verify that the A1 gasket kit that he is selling will fit my A2

Should be all good but best to ask if you don't know as I would hate to order it and it wont fit #-o

So because he did not know, does anyone here know if it is the same :?: :?: :?:

I don't know for sure, but I reckon you'll be OK. I think the only gasket you can't get is the head gasket for the KVSS models.

If you want to make your own gaskets, there are scans on My Site - just print them at 100% and trace them out of gasket paper. :)

I think the A and A2 crank cases ect are the same as Tim said its the KVSS top end that's different

Got a knock on the door from the mail man. WOW I wasn't expecting what he gave me. The engine gasket kit has arrived. I ordered the gasket kit on the 24th and it arrived on 29th, two of those days were the weekend. It sent from Japan post, location: Sanmu-Shi, Chiba, Japan and arrived in Melbourne Australia 5 days latter. Can not complain with that service.

Glad you got them, mine only took a week and that's was to the UK. Good quality plus the elusive head gasket every one has sought for years
