For O-ring gaskets, be sure to use gas/oil resistant rubber such as Nitrile or Buna o-rings.

Rubber gaskets can sometimes be made more pliable by boiling for a short time.

Harbor freight sells a 397 count Metric Nitrile O-ring set for $8. (Contains the most popular metric o-rings ranging from 1.9 mm ID x 2.8 mm OD to 3.5 mm ID x 47.7 mm OD). This set has almost all the O-rings needed for your bike.

When installing paper gaskets, coat one side with oil. This helps prevent tearing the gasket if the part has to be removed at some point in the future.
