I am doing a complete refresh of my '77 KZ 650 and I am wondering what everyone is using for gasket kits. Thanks in advance for your help.

Mostly genuine Kawasaki gaskets, but there is no kit.

And don't be tempted by gasket kits labeled as NOS from Kawasaki.  Those kits are aftermarket and at this point are at least 25 years old.  I bought one and the gaskets crumbled as soon as you touched them.  Kawasaki in Japan never offered gasket kits for our bikes.  Best order from Partzilla or a similar dealership source.
