I started researching different rocker box gaskets for my A10 as I'm tired of the leaks. I found several references to solid copper ones and am wondering who has them and how well they work.
Thanks

ebor bikes
sell them.

They are laser cut and vacuum annealed so can be fitted as supplied.

I sell solid copper rockerbox gaskets, they are Lazer cut C106 soft copper so they do not need to be annealed, they are £16-00 a set plus p+p, I can take pay pal as a gift, to JOGI102@aol.com these are well tested and work very well, I have not had one leak yet.

Regards TTJohn

C106 copper has a hardness range of 40 - 160 Vickers. Most C106 copper as supplied is not near the soft end of that range. The vacuum hardened ones that Ebor Bikes sell typically test at about 42 Vickers and are remarkably soft. They cost £17.60 a set plus P&P.
