    Injector cleaning/throttle body gaskets

    As part of winter maintenance I'm planning on having the injectors cleaned by a professional (ultrasonic and test-bed stuff etc). Removing the injectors requires disassembling the throttle body. There's a gasket there that can't be bought seperately from Aprilia, but only as part of an insanely priced throttle body rebuild kit.

    So, can I re-use the throttle body gasket? Oh and advice on how to carefully disassemble the throttle body is always welcome.

    95% of the time if you are careful the rail or injector cover gaskets are reusable.
