KTM 640 Head Gasket
Hello everybody, I am repairing the entire engine of my KTM 640 Adventure myself and I thank you all at advrider for your help.
I have a doubt.. do you think I should use silicone on the cylinder gasket and head gasket?
Look at the picture.

Do not use silicone!
Contact gunnerbuck as he made mention about using sealant on one section of the head gasket..........I think it might have been in the area of the cam chain, where the gasket is very thin.

On my adv 640 it leaked on the base. As seated left front corner. I used the steel gasket you have a fiber one pictured, but I think I used Suzuki bond on the base. Very expensive tube. I just didn't
have faith that the steel would be good enough. Hope this helps.
