Advice: Shock swap, SV1K onto a SV650s

Here's the dealio: I do some 2-up riding with my wife, but with her on the back, we're compressing the shock... quite a bit. I've scraped the license plate on the tire going over speed bumps. And...

Re: 2012 Honda NC700X

Not a fan of the body plastics up front (seems a cheap imitation of the BMW Multistrada) or the exhaust can...

Re: what is the plastic piece under the bike?

I think there maybe needs to be a distinction made between a chin fairing and a belly pan. Belly pans will trap dripping (or outright draining) fluids, and are what you need on the track. Chin...

Re: I like the cafe style, but the price of those CB's are too darn high.

Suzuki S40 with a Ryca conversion... Sweet. I want one.

Re: Bulky handguards for wind protection?

I have the Cycra Stealth guards on my SVs, and I've found they do more than the heated grips to keep my hands warm (though the combination of the two together is awesome). Bonus -- they match the '05...

Re: Does this happen to anyone else?

My boss will come in to work (usually well after I do), see my helmet on my desk, and say "Oh, so you rode your bicycle to work?"

Seriously, this guy makes no distinction between a motorcycle and...

Re: Icon Variant - Owner's Review

A follow-on question -- can the helmet be used without the visor?

Re: A pointless rant.

Yeah, the only real issues I have with the SV are basically cosmetic (exhaust being a big one). And once I'm ON the bike, I don't even see those things. I have no desire for an I-4 at all, and when I...

Re: Tail light w/ integrated turn signals

Does one turn completely off with a hesitation before the other turns on? The point being some one behind you who can't discern the difference in color between red and yellow most likely wouldn't see...

Re: Does this clip-on arrangement seem strange?

Aftermarket clip-ons, definitely. Maybe had to do that in order for the bars to clear the fairing -- there's not a lot of room to go low with clip-ons there.

Check the fork length on what's there...

You did loosen the binder bolt first, right?

Re: The Rebuild has Begun

For the 12mm front axle, I got a 12mm allen wrench and then cut off a section long enough to put into a 12mm socket. Only cost about $5, and I have enough of the wrench left to make... oh... about 4...

Re: Tail light w/ integrated turn signals

First, they look great in the parking lot. And that's where the "plus" category ends.

They are too dim.

If the driver behind you happens to be color blind, they won't discern your signal.

Re: The wife still hates motorcycles.

I rode before my wife and I met. She knows that if she made me sell the bike, it would be the beginning of the end. And she rides with me occasionally.

Re: Anyone Else Using a Bolt for a Brake Pedal?

When my wife's SV (since sold) went through a couple tip-overs, I "repaired" the shifter with a bolt. Had to do that a couple times. I replaced the shifter with OEM stuff before selling, but the...

Re: What happened to my SV this weekend

My guess is that he is going to quickly become a turnip that you won't be able to squeezy any blood from. But I hope I'm wrong.

Re: $15 E-Bay Bar End Mirror

You don't actually need to use the plugs with those eBay mirrors. The clamp works just fine on the 7/8" bars.

Re: SV used as a custom builder

There is much to like on that bike... And much more to not like. That said, if some one were giving the bike to me, I'd ride it like I stole it.

Re: Time to sell :(

I'vr bought both my SV's through CL. Had one of them listed on CL a couple times and got no bites, but sold it on a local forum ( fairly quickly.

I've got these on my bike, and in about 2 years I've never had an issue with them.

Re: Who uses Heli-bars, etc on a SVS?

My S had Heli Bars on it when I bought it. Being my first bike, I had no idea... But they were very flat -- I needed more down-angle. After trying stock clips, I settled on Swatt 2.5" risers with a...
