Hey Hoosier,

I think maybe you found my post over on hondatwins - I post as "CB650" there....
Nope, your post was about a week after I started this! (great minds...) But thanks for the contribution, that link oughtta work just fine. I could go right to your scans. But, I am a member there as well so if a "non-member" to  Hondatwins.net has issues we can work on linking direct. (While I was there I pirated the CB450 set ::) )
 
would these be the same as a 750k?
Sorry Ncstatecamp, not goin there, Towards the begining I said...
As I said, I know mine will fit 79-82 DOHC CB750 (all) and will list them that way once entered... but as for the original listed 76 CB750F I didn't want to risk including a wrong model or year so I left it as submitted. ;)
...that's why I wanted the OEM parts numbers included. That way you can cross referance them to see for yourself. If this grows to the extent I hope it does, there is no way I could know what all fits what. :)

Also, if you would get a thickness of original material w your digital caliper.  That would be helpful

Love this, And I think not only gaskets but decals, manuals and anything similar for old bikes should also get digitalized for future use, that way nothing will get lost and never be replaced. But that's a bigger project for the ambitious.

I have new OEM gaskets for the Yamaha XJ 550 (81-83), I'll scan them and make them in a vector format so they are ready for the cutter.

What would be the best way to cut them?  I have a decent sized laser cutter, would that be safe?  And where is the best place to get gasket materials?

Would scanning the object that gets gasketed help? Like could I scan the valve cover for the cb work and just cut that profile?

NC, easiest way to cut your own gaskets... Place the part on the paper/cork, tap it down with a rubber mallet. Part shape will transfer to the gasket material. Cut and hole punch as needed, use an exacto knife and I like to use sharpened cartridge cases as hole punches. I used to use black fountain pen ink as the transfer medium but it has gotten expensive. You can lightly oil coat the part and use it to transfer the shape, but, the gasket may not seal right, many paper gaskets go in dry, so do most cork ones. You want them to swell up after they get installed, not before.

You can rub the part with charcoal for transfer onto light colored gasket stock, but again, it may not let the piece seal up properly.

Good words guys.  So is there a gasket library available? for CB350F's?

Haven't had one submitted for here yet... You could check out www.sohc4.net and see if anyone has down loaded them there...

I might have to give this a try... thank you very much

eh.. dont wanna rain on the parade.... but when you scan, upload, download and print an image on various machines with various software, it's 99% of the time NOT the exact same size. Kinda important with gaskets right?

Therefor, i think its handy to scan them on top of a rasterized piece of paper, like this:



Ofcourse you'll have to WRITE ON THE RASTER PAPER what the scale is. DO WRITE it on, as a post might get deleted, but a picture will stay forever, with its scale.

What do you guys think?
