My new to me 954
I bought my 02 954 in December of 2015. I remember when I was in high school in 2003 I sat on one at the dealer and said one day I will have one. Well 12 years later I found one that was decently priced at a dealer and had low miles 4400. I looked it over really well trying to find any indication that someone changed out the cluster but couldn't find anything that would indicate it. Engine was clean, fairing are OEM, even had the original tires from 2002. With that being said it wasn't perfect. Had a dent in the tank, some scratches from someone not using a handle bar strap to keep the tiedowns off the fairings. It wasn't the color choice I wanted but for $3600 i had to buy it. First thing I did was change the plugs, oil and coolant. New 520 sprockets and chain, and new tires.
I waited for nice weather and rode the bike for a few weeks, put 400 miles on it and then one day I pull up after a 35 mile ride down the highway and see that the undertail section came undone and fell into the tire just hanging there. It banged up the license plate and somehow my wallet or phone didn't fall out. So it was then I decided it was time for changes
I didn't wanna paint ruin or paint the oem fairings so I ordered new ones from China. Ordered a new clear industries sequential tail light. Competition werks fender eliminater kit because I didn't want the blinkers in the undertail anymore. I didn't want resistors so I bought a TST flasher relay for a newer Honda that came with a short wire/connector since our bikes don't have an external relay. since I'm doing new fairings I had access to cluster connector since it was out and removed the 2 connectors from the cluster connector for the flasher relay so I can't solder the new relay connector to them.
The tank is off and ready for bodywork and paint. Got a black stainless bolt kit. Just need to get new flush mount blinkers and new 3 pin connectors so I can get rid of the 2 factory connectors and just have one for each. I'm going to do the same with the rear taillight as well.
Once I figure out how to post pictures I will upload them. It's coming along good and withen the next month or so it will be back on the road.
Sorry it's a little long, but this is my first post since I joined last year.
