Are the gaskets for the valve cover on the front and rear cylinder different on a first gen SV? bikebandit.com parts diagram pulls up the same part number for both. But, I swear the Suzuki dealership told me two different prices when I asked them about them a while back.

Also, how much of a requirement is it to change those gaskets when checking the valve clearances? I have read a little on the valve clearance thread but found nothing conclusive.

Thanks in advance

They are the same part, and I usually replace them when they start looking manky.

If you don't muck with them (put on any gasket sealer or anything) they should last a good long time.
