Re: What did you do to your SV today

Cleaned/waxed the chains, washed/waxed everything, filled the tanks, added SeaFoam, ran the treated gas through the fuel system, plugged in the battery tenders.

Bored.

Haha, no, but I keep thinking about it.

EDIT: Just did it! Nice boring Labor Day project.

Re: What did you do to your SV today

Found oil leaking out of my right fork. That's what I get for trying to change fork oil myself this winter. :rolleyes:

Re: What did you do to your SV today

It's not about the temperature... it's about how you dress. If people say 50 deg is cold, it's because they're wearing jeans and leather gloves.

Re: What did you do to your SV today

In case anybody cares, I DID find that using conventional oil relieved me of my topping-off duties. (Not trying to start this discussion again, just pointing out my experience in case anybody does a...

Re: What did you do to your SV today

I chopped a 1/2" off each end of my LSL handlebars on the SV1k. Mucho like-o.

Then I road it because it was 50 degrees in January! But now it's snowing and 5 deg.

Re: What did you do to your SV today

Ditched the PO's lower fairing and replaced it with a used OEM chin fairing, as well as new motor mount bolts where the lowers' J-brackets were. Mmm, much better looking.

Re: What did you do to your SV today

Mounted up a new BT-016 in the front, and installed Tech Spec tank grips.

BTW, now that Bridgestone came out with their new S20 tires, the 016's are CHEAP.

Re: What did you do to your SV today

I put the clip-ons back on. (Have been running at LSL kit for over a year.) I'm trying it out again to decide if I want to use the clip-ons for my first track day next spring.

Does anyone have...

Re: What did you do to your SV today

Switched to conventional oil to see if the synthetic stuff is to blame for my SV burning a quart every few thousand miles.

Learned to "plastic weld" with a soldering iron. Fixed this:

Re: What did you do to your SV today

Blew my rear tire yesterday (nail). It was almost done for anyway.

Found a lightly used set of Bridgestone BT-023's on ebay for $130 shipped. Hopefully these will last longer than my BT-016's...
