    Reusing the head gasket. I have had the head off my bike 5 times in two weeks using the same gasket each time.
    Using the copper spray for the re-install. Never leaving it in the same direction

    This just done for testing different thingies then installing new when i'm happy.

    How many times can I do this before having to replace it? 5 done, 10,15, each time I reuse the gasket I put some money in my bike bank, just like I had to buy it new every time. Doing this with every thing I can. I was very suprised to see a nice little stash of bike cash. Still home with broken arm.

    there's no way to tell how many times. i've reused them a bunch of times, and replace them when it looks bad.

    you'll know it was too many times when it blows.

    What Baird said.
    I'm just wondering why you have to pull the head so often.
