This time apply gasket tack to the pump cover surface and anti-sieze to the pump case surface.

The thin coat of anti sieze will prevent the gasket from sticking to the case but the gasket will still be able to seal.
I had the KLR250 out for a ride last weekend. The carb started over filling. Probably got a stuck float or a piece of grit stuck in the need seat. I am going to looking into jetting mods while I have it apart.
