Yesterday I removed my IAC valve for spray cleaning and noticed that it had no gasket, just metal to metal. I was wondring how important the gasket is. What exactly does it seal against. How would an engine run without it in place? I have an '06 vulcan Thans in advance for any replys!

IF memory serves me right, and 06 would have a composite(black) intake, you shouldn't have a gasket, for all other Vulcans not having a gasket could create a vacuum leak...

Well if what you say is true then how did I find one available online?
