My stator decided to die a couple weeks ago. I've got a new Rick's stator and CE605 rectifier I'm in the process of throwing on the bike. I forgot to get a new gasket from AF1 when I put in my order and the only Aprilia dealer around here is fresh out of them.

Does anyone know if I could use a gasket off a Canam Spyder v990? Are there other bikes that share our engine that I could try and find a gasket for?

Is the old one torn? Even if it is you could probably seal it up temporarily. Just don't try and put the cover on with no gasket and sealer. On some engines when this has been tried there was not enough clearance for the starter idle gears to function and there could be clearance problems with the new stator as well.

Yea I ham handed it when I pulled the cover off and tore the gasket in a couple places. I can get one from AF1 in about a week if there aren't any local alternatives.
