Why 3 head gaskets and only one cam shaft? How many cylinders do you have on that Honda? :lol2:

:lol2: Good question. The kit on the left is a complete kit. Cheaper than ordering individually even if I don't use everything. I haven't opened it yet but in the picture it's hard to tell the head gasket from the base gasket. Regardless I needed a 103mm head gasket & ordered the Cometic, they are better gaskets.

My question, without getting personal, are you winging it or is this kinda thing in your field? :lol2:
Just curious. I'm no mechanic, minor stuff I can do, but your doing major surgery. Or is it easier than it looks?

BTW- is it still going to be a 650?

You just do it. Have repair manual at hand and do it. There is a chance to mess it up, but everything is fixable. Just don't invent your own things when you think there's no point to buy this or that because it's too expensive or too long :lol2:
Only thing you really need is your time and willing to do it. (ok, ok, and torque wrench too, preferably).
Every day is a good day when you ride
