    i found this written by justin on another thread from a while back concerning the 80cc slant head cylinder covers from zoombicycles. I am not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to motors so I am not exactly sure why he is suggesting to buy new gaskets if you plan on buying the slant head cylinder cover. Is it because of the higher compression? Is it necessary to buy the gaskets?

    You will need a head gasket, but not (necessarily) a base gasket*.

    *Unless your base gasket is shot.
