    The muffler gasket I'm looking for is for the 66/80 CC single stroke 'China Girl' type engines. Apparently, some vendor's description of the item sez it has a stud spacing of 30 MM = 1.1811 inch which obviously is wrong since it is way to narrow. Anyway, have NO luck putting in an order on either Spooky Tooth Cycles or Bikeberry websites. So consequently, am requesting additional list of vendors that carry this crucial part.

    Thanks.

    Here is a link for a gasket. It is designed for two stroke engines but will likely fit your single stroke china girl. Good idea to call the vendor to double check.

    I used this stuff once to make my own. You'll need a tin-snip and a drill/awl.

    Interesting alum material...can be machined. Too bad it doesn't show the exact spec sizes on it.

    For the time being, I get by with the Permatex Ultra Copper gasket maker...but its never intended as a permanent fix.

    That's why I suggested you call first.

    Here's an update on my gasket situation:

    Received the 'heavy duty' muffler flange gasket from Bikeberry. Problem was, it was only smooth and flush on one side only, and really rough on the other side. Consequently, the bike ride was much louder. Resolved this issue, by applying a thin coat of Permatex on the muffler pipe flange facing the rough side gasket. Couldn't be happier.

    Thanks for all the replies.
