I am a proud new owner of a 02 954. I purchased the bike from another member on the list and am very happy with my new toy. The bike is quite a handful compared to the 600 Ninja I had last season.
There are just a couple questions I have. I have been reading some forums in regards to the engine noise these bikes seem to make when they are a little on the cold side. I guess it's something I'll have to get used too.
The second thing is I have just bought a used bolt on pipe for the bike. The guy I bought the pipe from said he used the gasket from the factory pipe. But when I took the factory pipe off and looked at the metal factory gasket, it seemed a little thick to me. Just didn't seem to me like it should be used for a bolt-on. So I am wondering if there is another paper/rubber gasket I should be buying or just use some a tube of high temp gasket maker?
