gl1200 thermostat housing o ring
hi wingers

we're just restoring a '84
gl1200 interstate.

the bike has stood for 2 years
and lots of little jobs to do.
the radiator was rusty. bought hi
temp paint etc.

q) the hoses were perished
and now about to be replaced.
the o ring looks ok.
I've some hylomar sealant that is for
all fluids and is good for most applications.
i can't find an o ring in the uk?

i know the dimensions are:-

54mm x 2mm

I'm thinking vitron o rings rather
than nitrile, due to the heat and

would hylomar be suitable for this
thermostats housing seal?

many thanks!
