NEED Header Gaskets and Copper 10 MM Brake Hydraulic Washers

    I've been surfing for the last few days and found one site that sells
    copper hydraulic 10MM banjo washers. They're 6 for $4.00 from a
    website that specializes in Moto Guizzi's. Anyone know of another
    source, perhaps cheaper, but not necessarily cheaper?

    ALSO, I've been looking for a 52MM outside diameter exhaust header
    gaskets. The crush full metal types (not the stuff that looks like
    steel wool). I've been looking for a dealer or website that has the OD
    and ID dimensions so I can get a more substantial gasket than the OEM.
    The header port is 52MM and the exhaust passage is 36MM. I'd be happy
    if I could locate a 52MM OD and a 45-46MM ID crush gasket. I have
    aftermarket pipes on my bike that are a little narrower than stock, and
    a beefier gasket would help to make a good seal.

    I've looked for both the washers and gaskets in the Parts Unlimited,
    Dennis Kirk, and J&P Cycles catalogs with no luck (DK has aluminum
    hydraulic washers).

    Any help, tips, suggestions, or comments on either the copper washers
    and/or header gaskets would be greatly appreciated.

    Ride safe,

    Search eBay, and ask for dimensions on anything that looks likely.

    Thanks. I'll give eBay a shot this morning.

    I found my DK 2006 (the wife had it! :)). I found 10MM copper washers
    at a fair price.

    I can still use some information from anyone on the exhaust header
    crush gaskets.

    I quess I'm a little late but I did the same song & dance about copper
    banjo washers a week or two ago in another thread. For the benifit of
    anyone who cares. I found mine at a NAPA parts store, I think about
    70 cents each.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did call my local NAPA and they said they
    did not have them.

    I have a problem using NAPAOnline and Autozone web pages: I get to the
    point where I'm asked for my automobile year and type. This is always
    a problem when I atup req in order to surf their sites?

    I did find my 2006 Dennis Kirk Harley catalog and they have 6-pack
    copper washers for $4.00 a pack. I'm looking to get my 2006 DK Metric
    catalog and they should be in there, too. I went through the catalog
    in detail last night. All I can say is WOW! They have all kinds of
    Harley stuff (including engines!) you never see in metric catalogs.
    THis won't get me to buy a Harley, but I will check the Harley catalog
    for stuff.
