Gaskets are mechanical seals that fill the space between two or more surfaces, in order to prevent leaks. They help to keep the machined parts on your BMW motorcycle sealed throughout a variety of conditions.
Types of Gaskets
When it comes to your motorcycle, there are a number of gaskets in place. They help to seal off such essential components as your engine, intake, exhaust, and oil pan, preventing fluids and toxic gases from leaking out. They also help to prevent debris and pollutants from getting into those parts and wreaking havoc.
Gaskets come in many materials, such as silicone, rubber, metal, plastic, and fiber-reinforced polymers. Whatever the material, they have to fit snugly against the two parts to prevent leakage. Gaskets also must be able to handle both heat and pressure. If they can't, they'll fail -- which leads to expensive, extensive repairs.
How to Spot Faulty Gaskets
Signs of a failing gasket include:
Excessive exhaust emissions
Reduced engine power
Poor fuel efficiency
