Good Evening Gurus and Experts! Some stupid questions from a beginner. See picture here: http://frestaholken.se/2016-02-22.jpg
Is this Gasket Cylinder Head a standard? Or some creative solution from an earlier owner? Can I used again or do I need to buy a new? Thanks in advance.
HONDA XL500S. 1980.

Hi Happyswede
No it is not the original gasket but it is an aftermaket gasket which is better than original.
To use it again ... Well everybody would say no.
But i am running on excatly the same gasket (which was used - according to the former owner just for a very short time) .
Bought it used and it is running fine on it. No oilleak no nothing.

Plain wrong, this is the original Honda gasket. If you do not take it apart like you did you can use it at least 10 times..
