I've removed the cylinder head and was able to reuse the gasket. It's thin copper on mine and I've had no
problems so far.

As Paul says... M90 uses a copper gasket.


You can use it many times over.

You can buy thin sheets of copper shim stock to make gaskets if needed. Enco and McMaster Carr are good internet sources. Any Machinist supply will have them in stock also if you are near a large city.
Copper gaskets can be reused many times as long as they are not damaged from removal.
