head gaskets

I just rebuilt my 92 polaris 500 SP and there is a slight coolant leak around the head. I used an aftermarket gasket kit and was wondering if anyone experienced this problem Vs. using OEM gaskets.

Nope on my 91 500 sp no leakage after rebuild. I used Cometic gaskets. Did you torque the bolts in the right order?

Proper torque sequence is critical, as is the correct amount of torque. The other thing i will mention, is a warped head. It doesnt take much to warp the aluminum in these engines. I took mine off of my old sled and had them shaved or lapped or whater...had them brough back to true flat...this solved my problem.

Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.
