Probably junk order from the gasket guru who's on ebay out of the UK.

That's the Cruzinimage gaskets. The quality is OK. I bought a set once, the paper gaskets are good quality with a strip of sealant around it (water pump, clutch cover and base gaskets). The head gaskets are not as good as OEM and I would use some yamabond with them or just oring the heads.

Most of the other gaskets in the set you wouldn't normally use as the OEM ones last just fine (exhaust and powervalve caps). The exhaust copper gaskets are good quality though, same as OEM. Same for the rubber gasket behind the flywheel cover, it hardly ever needs replacing. The kit also includes some random orings and copper washers which I never used or figured out what they're for..

So if you need a few pieces in the kit it's worth it, otherwise just get individual OEM ones.

Also as mentioned by Searick, Maccas (Dan) on here runs gasketguru.co.uk and he can help as well.
