Universal Gasket Paper | Gilera Citta
A gasket works as a filling material and ensures that the parts that are attached to each other, such as the cylinder and the cylinder head, do not leak. You can of course always choose a hard gasket made of metal, but it is also possible in many cases to buy a paper and / or liquid gasket so that you can make it yourself.
Use of paper gaskets
Paper gaskets are mainly intended for situations where the components fit well together and the surfaces do not show any unevenness. Furthermore, they are mainly used in gearboxes and carburetors and the like because paper gaskets are not made for high temperatures and pressure. If you keep an eye on these rules, paper gaskets are extremely reliable and convenient to use for your Gilera Citta.
Buy gasket paper and liquid gaskets
Making a paper gasket for your Citta is easy. For the dimensions you can use the old gasket as a template, or place the new paper gasket over the part and rub it over it so that the circumference of the openings is visible. Then it is important to carefully remove the old remains from the previous packing, smooth the surfaces of the parts and apply the new gasket, possibly in combination with a liquid gasket. Feel free to look around our webshop, order your new gasket paper in different thicknesses, as well as liquid gaskets, hollow pipes, punches and gasket scrapers!
