    Rocker Box Gaskets

    I replaced the rear rocker box gaskets on both Buell's years ago with HD/Buell gaskets. Now one bike has developed a small leak and the other is weeping a bit. Going to redo both before the fans get ruined.

    Would like to use Genuine James gaskets but can't find a supplier.

    Does Genuine James still make gasket kits for these bikes?
    If so does anyone know where they can be purchased?
    If not are there other gasket manufacturers making gaskets/seals for our Buell's?

    Thanks for your help, I really don't want to use HD gaskets again.

    Thanks so much BellyBagger, exactly the information I needed! Found James kits for sportsters but no mention of Buell and didn't know if they would fit. My bikes are 07, XB12STT so the kit should fit. What size is your Lightning, 9 or 12?

    Not really, the term valve cover and rocker box cover gasket goes back before me, take my word for it, I'm old. I don't know which one came first but they've both been used since I can remember, which is from the late 50's when it comes to cars. My opinion is that the term valve cover came from cars and is more widely used due to this.
    The term rocker box cover/gasket could actually come from the the very early HD's ?
