I do understand your gripe.
I have a race ECU on order and no one in the states have 1 available. Went through Commoto and he says they are back ordered. He said 2 weeks. It's been almost 6 weeks and keep getting the "2 week" answer everytime I call him. It's the last of the kit race bits I need....frustrating!

Are there any .60mm gaskets available anywhere? I have three sets of 0.65 and no 0.60. None in the USA and still on back order for 2 months.

I have been in contact with another company to have some made as thin as 0.55mm for a good bit less than what Triumph parts cost - even at a good price. I may just pull the trigger and order a dozen.

I have a .60 that I was going to use but might be interested in a .55 if my 08 motor can go that small. I haven't measured the squish or valve to piston clearance yet but will in the next couple of weeks. Let me know what a 55 gasket will cost.

I called triumph directly when the dealer says they don't know anything. They have generally been able to tell me what's up. Can't hurt to call them and ask right?

.55 head gaskets? Isn't that a bit thin? Have you tried it before?

The kit has 4 different ones to choose from. They go down to a .50! I've already had my head decked so I have to watch my clearance but my builder said I could probably go thinner.
