919 valve cover gasket (and other general questions)
So I have been looking at 919's recently, and I have noticed something that seems to keep coming back: The valve cover is either void of any weirdness, or it has this creme colored (plastic like and solid) stuff that is usually in the vicinity of the half circles. I am breaking my brain on what it could be, on two bikes I have seen it now, yet pictures on the internet show none of that stuff going on. One was a 2007, the other a 2002.
I will be using the search function for the following, but if you have a 2002 I would love to hear your input:
I have looked at a 2002, and it looked in pretty good shape. Some scrapes on the left engine cover, but the tank seemed fine. Rear sprocket was good, front I could not see. But the chain seemed new as well. It's Asphalt color, some yoshi's on it and I believe 22k miles. Anything I should pay close attention to? It would be hilarious if the owner is on these forums, but I'll find that out soon enough! I want to see if I can test ride it next weekend, and if it's good I'll try and close a deal.
