the definitive word on CB350 gasket kits


By superwesman - Posted on 25 March 2011

There are quite a few gasket kits available that claim to have every gasket for the CB350.  This is a lie.  The list below identifies every gasket used in the CB350 engine and shows which gasket sets contain each.  This is a work-in-progress.  Suggestions/corrections/additions are welcome.  Anything in italics is something that I have not verified first hand.

Gasket Kits

ID Manufacturer Manufacturer Model # Vendor Vendor Model #
DK D&K 6888 Sirius Consolidated CB350GS
A Athena unknown Bore Tech GS350
AT Athena unknown Bore Tech TEGS350
NE NE BRAND unknown Rusty Riders ga-58-3346
V Vesrah VG-145 unknown unknown

Notes

  • Rusty Riders advertises the Athena kit, but actually sells the NE BRAND kit!
  • The gasket kits shown here are ones that I've been able to identify as "readily available."
  • I have only seen one NOS gasket kit.  It contained some parts that are not found in any of the new kits (oil pump gasket and vibration dampeners for the cylinder head).  However, the gaskets were in terrible physical condition.  They were rigid and none were flat.

Notes

  • The part numbers are taken from the CB350K4 parts fiches.  In cases where more than one part number exists, I have chosen one at random.
  • In some cases, Honda seems to use the term "gasket"  for rubber pieces, similar to o-rings or seals, that are used in the front forks or taillights.  These are not included here.
  • Most gasket kits include o-rings for the cylinder bases and tappet covers.  These are included here.
  • Some gasket kits include valve stem seals, despite the fact that they are not included in the Honda parts fiche.  These are included here, but they are not required.
  • "GASKET B, CYL HD CVR" is a metal plate.  I am not sure why Honda considers this to be a gasket.  It is not included in any gasket kit that I've seen, but is included here.
  • I believe that Mystery Gasket #1 can be used for the oil filter cover on the right crankcase.  It is not included in the Honda parts fiche.
