Replacing the head gasket on my 93 750w, does anyone know if the cyl head bolts can be reused of do I have to buy new ones? I know new washers are a must.
Complete engine rebuild kit is on the way as I want to replace some other seals, gaskets, etc if I'm tearing the head off it's more economical to buy the entire kit than individually, and some of the spares will come in handy later I'm sure.
I have an 84 gs1150ef and if I recall correctly they recommend new bolts if after 2 or 3 installs.

I have reused 750W and 1100W head bolts and washers with no problems to date. One of my race engines would have over 10 rebuilds on the same head and case bolts. Conrod bolts are the only ones that need to be replaced on rebuild.
