Copper is a ductile metal with very high thermal conductivity. Therefore, copper exhaust gaskets increase flow between 7 to CFM (Cubic feet per minute) depending on the motorcycle model and head work. Unlike gash gaskets which can restrict exhaust gas flow, these copper gaskets permits unrestricted flow, leading to a better and a leaner performance of your engine.
Moreover, gaskets that are made of mesh don’t guarantee a perfect sealing. On the other hand copper is a solid material which proportionate a perfect fit into the cylinder port, meaning no more air leaks and subsequently a loss of power; preventing an excessive wear and tear of your engine.
Therefore, when your next service is due, think wisely and upgrade and a pair of copper gaskets. It will not only last a lot longer but it will also save you some cash every service.
