    What's the deal with Permatex " Right Stuff"?

    ...and its cost?? Every time I buy this stuff it gets more expensive. It has literally doubled in price in about 2 years. I'm kind of tired of it. Any one have any good equivalents? I paid over $20 for it at Napa today, man.

    yeah, motorcycle OEMs make (or spec) some really good stuff, and it is expensive...
    I just needed to vent, lol...kinda feels like I'm being gouged.

    Yeah thats one of the spots that requires it. I also have noticed the price increase. Used to be cheap. Spray paint has gone out of control as well.

    I've never used Right Stuff. The regular grey Permatex works just fine. I used it to seal my transmission when I had it apart and it doesn't leak a drop.

    its called "Napa" overpriced same stuff... 5 oz is under 15, 10 oz around 21$

    but honestly it will let you do alot for one tube of 10 ounce
