    Kawasaki ER 5 1999 A3 head gasket question

    I was installing my Loobman today and noticed that the head gasket on the left was was pushed in away at the point highlighted in the pic (green) below. Can someone please confirm that space behind this green area/wall, is just an area that is separate from the cylinders and needs no urgent action - and therefore that the red area its just a hollow space?) And therefore the green wall is just a bridge between the innermost gasket surface and the outer and therefore no need for a seal if that makes sense?
    Ps bike rides and starts fine with no liquid noticeable and that was after/during a 120 mile ride. It looks persished but just not where the wall should be.

    Yes. Me bad. Rocker gasket. Think it'll survive no leaks. Will change shortly and do valves at same time
