|rlaf75||Yeah was just wondering about the gasket. Like I said I still have the o-ring gasket but didn't realize they went back to paper. Also I have to agree with Ironmark about replacing the torque head bolts with allen. You won't have to worry about stripping them anymore with the allen heads|

My 08 has a paper gasket. I reuse the derby cover gasket all the time, I only replaced it once just for the hell of it.
You shouldn't use any silicone on the gasket at all. Also I recommend that you replace the OEM Torque Head derby cover screws with Allen Head screws you will be glad you did.

|rlaf75||Ok stupid question. When did they go back to a paper gasket for the derby cover? My 09 has the rubber o-ring|

|Smarty||Ever since they went from the rubber o-ring to the gasket that covers the whole derby cover, no leaks. I've been using mine for about 60,000 miles and no problem.|

|Big_gary||I still got my original on and plan on keeping it until it leaks. NO RTV.|

|Blackbag1||This is good to hear...thanks! Did you guys apply a thin bead of rtv or did you re-install it as-is with its less proud bead?|
