Default Base gasket installation

Do you put any kind of liquid gasket material on the cylinder base gaskets? I didn't on my other 600, but the one I'm doing right now has tons of unidentifiable spunk on it from the previous owner. Which way is right?

Fuck that dry shit, I put permatex Ultra Grey on mine before I learned it was bad to do. Now since I've been doing it "correctly" I've lost 2 base gaskets - both on waverunners. Ultra Gray or Black - better yet - use Threebond and you're really set.

I just did mine dry. Seemed to seal fine. Just get her good and clean first.
the rubberpronged gasket remover for a hand held 2" angle grinder did the trick for me.

I see, I am just wondering about how much unnecessary work I should do to my sled once I start doing unnecessary work to it.

If your doing top end you kind of need to do base.
I mean I had under 200 in my top end and that was factory rings and sending the head out to be milled
but I has to do mine due to needing to find where the coolant was going.
