This build is taking a very long time so I occasionally find parts stashed away. I found these yesterday and I think they were part of a master rebuild kit.

I think I just figured out the four o-rings. Tappet caps?

The other two are metallic, but they seem very light. Too shiny for aluminum and too light for gauge steel. Any ideas?

Picture isn’t quite clear enough to say for sure, but I imagine the bottom two are exhaust crush gaskets. Too 4 are tappet caps, you’re correct.

I checked to see how the bottom 2 would fit, so I suspected they are/were crush gaskets. But I thought the exhaust crush gaskets were made of copper?

Not always - I bought XS650 gaskets for the pipes my buddy and I made for my 450 and they seemed to be aluminum and fiber (maybe asbestos), shiny silver like that
