Re: Thinking about a 954!
My bike has about 20k on it, so far all its needed was its 16thou mile major service (valves adjusted) and other reg services here and there but thats it.
The engine cases are very thin therefore may sound loud when comparing it to other bikes.
Just basically check everything is straight, (not sure if you guys had it over there but over here in the UK there was a recall for the front forks - if you do, make sure it was corrected), check the gearbox when riding e.g. does it shift nice and smoothly and make sure it doesn't jump out of gear when riding (would equal a worn box) and look for damage...
Does the owner look the sort of person who would red line it 24/7 or enjoys nice country lanes? You can tell a lot from the way the owner treats the bike when you go to see it.
