No big deal getting a copper gasket from Lani.  Cheap enough to make sure it's right.

In the meantime, stator cover is finished: etched and painted...

378cc is my guess.

Maybe the U is for parallel twin.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

Haha. The U is for Utilitarian Art & Machine.

378 is for the displacement, for sure. 

I lost my circles inside of the 8, so it's far from perfect.  LOL

With the best I could figure measuring up, I ordered .042"  base and head gaskets from Lani.  The next size up is .050".

Just noticed your question about 71mm piston. Can't be done without a load of work.
Almost sure you use CB450 or 500T pistons as three valve 400 pistons are too short and flat top so compression is around 6:1  You will need new liners as they can't be bored far enough. Get a used Suzuki GS1000 block as it uses 70mm pistons (It's been a long time since I did the measuring)

Is that the thickness of the stock gaskets?
