    Engine gasket

    Hi guys. I own a 1993 Suzuki Gn250.
    When I bought it , it had around 9k km on the clock , and I added another 11k. The seller told me it had a minor accident , a few scratches on the exhaust and handle bar but that was all. The tank was shining , scratch less , and the original sticker was still on it.
    It had no rust , looking perfect except those scatches on the exhaust. I was quite impressed that an old motorcycle was in so good condition with so few km.

    Recently i looked at the gaskets , and i noticed one of them ( head gasket i think ) its not looking like new , looks like silicon ( gray ) , but not looking like the rest of them.

    My question is : did Suzuki made it like this? Was my engine was apart? What do you guys think? Is it bad if the head came off?

    It runs just fine , smoothly , but it seems suspicious to me that the head was off before 9k km... Should I expect something in the future?

    It will get rattlier and wear out.

    Keep changing the oil and that will be years away. Dont lose any sleep over it.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    If it's not leaking oil ... don't worry about it .. Whatever gasket it is ...
