Think my clutch case gasket was $10 from ebay.
Agreed, a bit thicker than manila, some people use cereal boxes, though they're probably not big enough for the clutch case. Poster board or card stock should work, but the parts stores do have sheets of material.
I used the new stator gasket to trace it on a piece of card stock, in case I needed one in a hurry.

hmmm I never thought the oem gaskets where that over priced, although I NEVER buy them from a kawasaki dealer.
when I did my engine work, I bought all gaskets from ebay, using OEM part numbers. none where very expensive (I had to do a stator replacement, and had to replace the gasket on the right side engine cover a different time).
I will add, I think all the gaskets I got where genuine kawasaki too, but its been a while, and I have a swiss cheese memory

Alternitave Gasket Material
Hey lads hope everyone is doing good. Just wondering what everybody uses as gasket material instead of over priced oem gaskets. I need a new clutch housing gasket and was thinking of using some manila folders to make it out of. Anyone ever used something not oem. Very interested to see what can and cant be used.
