Gasket Choices and Hayden Oil fix

Ok, im fixing to do another infamous base gasket leaker, I have been using James with decent success, The local shop has been ranting and raving about cometic, but i have been somewhat reluctant because of some of the things i have read on here, Is the cometic as good as the james? they are the same price? and Has anyone put any real miles on their bike with the hayden oil fix? ive read good and bad about that too, ? thanks for your input,

base gaskets

The moter builder that did mine, did something that he does with all the race motors he builds. He lapped the barrels to the cases, used a sealer, and put the motor back together without base gaskets. This, along with the head shave gave a nice bump in compression. I've run this motor for 6yrs. - no leaks.

You'll find Comatic a little more expensive. I use both with great success. The newer style base gaskets from both James and Comatic take care of any further issues with base gasket leaks.

Copper coat. A little spray on both sides of gasket, no more leaks.
