There is very little tooling required to make gaskets, no exotic CNC millling. This is just sheer profiteering by companis on loyal owners who value genuine parts.

Dirk,

Someone was supposed to be sending me a load of rd350 gaskets to copy but it never happened.

When i've sorted it they'll be £3 a gasket

Yes they were on about this on the RD Forum

Just doesn't make sense when they used to be around £4 each

I use aftermarket as you can buy a whole gasket kit for that price or even get a complete Athena gasket kit for around £35
