Part: Overhaul Gasket Kit for Honda CB550K / CB550K1 / CB550K2 / CB550K3 / CB550K4 / CB550F
Why You Need This: It all started with an oil leak from somewhere but ended with a complete engine tear down. Now you need the complete overhaul Gasket Kit for your Honda CB550. Chances are, when the engine was being disassembled, a few of the rubber o-rings or paper gaskets were marred or torn. This CB550 Gasket Kit is the most comprehensive gasket kit on the market and comes with all of the paper style gaskets, rubber o-rings, and exhaust gaskets to cover a top to bottom rebuild of your CB550 motorcycle. While you have your engine disassembled consider picking up a Honda CB550 Oil Seal Kit and some Honda Bond Gasket Sealer. While your top end is apart, consider checking your valves using our Valve Spring Tool to make sure that you are within recommended service limits.
Installation Tip: Use a razor blade to scrape clean your surfaces and remove all traces of the old gaskets along with any blobby silicone that has been used along the way. Once the old gaskets have all been scrapped away, use some acetone to clean any still remaining residue. When applying paper gaskets, spread a thin layer of white lithium grease to make for easy removal in the future.
