Had my (almost new to me) 96 FLHTP in the shop last week for 10K svce. Base gaskets leaking. Dealer quotes me 8hrs labor + parts. I'm assuming the total tab would be about $600-650. Being a somewhat brave soul, I've been thinking I could save some $$, and retain my independence, by doing it myself. I'll have the sheet metal off this winter anyway to paint. Already have the service manual, but not all the special tools. Probably ought to do a top end while I'm in there....This is getting to be a big job, I think.

Anyone out there done this at home?
Are there better gaskets than OEM?
Bike's got 50Kmi; what's the probability I have to re-bore the cylinders?
Anything I should watch out for?

Appreciate any input my fellow riders can offer.
