MLS Replacement head gasket for RRS

Hi,

I'm replacing my head gasket on my 900 RRS and I've been sent a Vesrah 3 layer steel gasket (with the layers held together with rivets). It looks plain with no coatings on the layers. Do I need to use any type of sealant on the surfaces when rebuilding the head ?

I don't know about the Vesrah MLS gasket. Didn't even know they make MLS head gaskets but i have Wisecos (manufactured by Cometic) MLS head gasket on my 954 and i installed it without sealent to very clean surfaces. The head surface was machined and the casing surface i polished with 4000 grid wet sanding pillow and cleaned very thoroughly after machinings and polishing and installed dry. My dyno guy said i should sprayed this to bouth surfaces of the gasket:


But Cometic says it should be installed dry on clean machined surfaces with very smooth finish:

Mine has held up fine but the engine is driven 1500km:s after the re-build.
