I am in the middle of a rebuild and I am a little dumbfounded with the head gasket. I went cheap and bought tusk, and the question is.... The head gasket has a raised ridge around the entire head gasket. Does this bump face up or down..I have googled this question and only found responses for 250 and 125 dirtbikes and for those they say the ridge goes up. When I put the bump facing down the little tab lines up with the tab on the deck and when i put the bump up the little tab lines up with nothing. So I would assume the bump goes down, but all the other sites say it goes up on those dirtbikes.
Also when i got the gasket set the base gasket had a tear. SO i traced it onto gasket material and made my own using 1/32" thick Hi Temp gasket material. Does anyone ever do this? Will it hold up.

No instructions and a ripped gasket..I think i'll just buy oem or cometic for now on..
