Are you using the OEM gaskets? Some of the after market gaskets are thinner than stock. When you lay them up with the stock O-rings the o-ring will stand proud over the too thin gasket and result in a leak. If this is the case get some Felpro 1/32 thick gasket material and make your own.

Been ordering O.E.M. parts from BikeBandt.com. This gasket IS thin that I have purchased. I will look for some Felpro material though and do a comparison. Thanks for the input!

Bandit's prices are higher than others. Is it free shipping on everything, or only if you buy a certain amount?

Their website is sure more difficult to navigate than Western's.

Why ain't we ridin'?

My order was enough to warrant free shipping. Not familiar with Western.

Western is one of a few shops that offers very low prices on line with very good customer service. There are others, like Partzilla, which are widely used.
I had a problem with Bandit and now feel like their name is appropriate.

I never ordered anything from them, always found a better price elsewhere.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

So far BikeBandt has done me ok. Most company's charge a shipping fee to Alaska. When the order is over $99.00 there is no S/H fee. I will check with the two company's you mentioned though. Thanks, Dennis.

I have defaulted to comparing only two vendors.

Western Honda of Scottsdale
and
partzilla in alabama/Georgia?

it depends on what you buy, and the breakover for partzilla's free shipping.
