Reusing Oil Filter Gasket?

Just recently did an oil change and decided to keep the old gasket. There is a very minor leak (no drips) and I'm ok with that, I have no tension wrench just being careful to not over-tighten. Any reason why I can't keep the gasket if it looks ok for the next change also?

As long as it's in good condition I don't see why not.

Just make sure the material isn't crushed and no longer round.

Wipe it clean and give a smear of gasket cement both sides and it should be OK.

I usually flip the gasket over and get a new gasket every other oil change. Never had a leak.

The CBR250R/300R oil filter gaskets have an asymmetrical shape, as shown here... https://www.partzilla.com/product/honda/15412-KYJ-901

So no, they cannot be flipped over and reinstalled that way.

Yes, they can only be installed one way....unlike the oil filter.
I always install a new gasket. My local dealer doesn't stock them and I don't want to be waiting on a parts delivery if the used one starts leaking. What the heck...it's only a $4 part.

If the gasket is leaking now (even a little) then certainly you do not want to use it on the next oil change also? That would be a bad idea.

Just buy some gaskets at the dealer or check this out Magenetic plug + a washer for $5 shipped from China:

For myself I did this:

Although I myself have a CB300F so im not sure if the same part fits both bikes. But I recommend just get a vlue pack on eBay shipped from Thailand of the Honda branded filters + crush washer + rubber gasket seals. And in my case I use the same rubber gasket 2 times and probably you can get 3 uses out of the metal crush washer if you are gentle with the oil change procedure
