Re: Do I want an SV650?

Yes a 600 cc race replica is a more capable bike than an SV650, but the v twin is a hoot on the track, (somewhat) more forgiving of operator error, cheaper to operate (doesn't go through tires so...

Feeler for my 2003 SV650N

Considering selling my 2003 SV650. It has the scratches and occasional surface corrosion of a well-loved 15 year old bike, but runs great. Odometer reads 40,930 miles but actual is a little higher...

Hazards work, but not my left turn signal

Like the title says, I recently found that my right turn signal works fine, and both sides, front and back, as well as the integrated tail light, come on when I use the hazards, but the left turn...

Re: Disappointing Advanced Ridercourse Experience

My experience was better than yours, and by doing it I got the driver ed discount on both bike and car insurance. He also had us wear the beer goggles which allegedly mimic the effects of a few...

Re: Coming back from an accident

i agree- if riding is something you enjoy and want to do, then do it. If not, then don't. You don't owe anyone an explanation, much less to a bunch of people on the internet.

Somewhat related...

Re: New to the asphalt

If the '05 with salvage title is local, no harm in checking it out. It's entirely possible to total a bike without doing any irreparable damage. If it pulls straight, brakes straight and goes up...

Re: What Could I Have Done Differently?

Maybe it was inevitable, but maybe not. With a smooth throttle hand, these bikes are capable of a lot more lean angle than you may realize. It's possible you could have leaned in more and saved the...

Re: Laguna Seca Track Day Lawsuit

Looking at the video of the incident, I do think the track and/or track day operator has to explain why having those sandbags lying so near the rumble strips during an event isn't negligence on their...

Re: Mileage poll and how shes doing?

Somewhere over 48k on my 2003. I don't know for sure because after the speedo sensor crapped out a second time, I let it go for several months before replacing it. Other than that, I've had no...

Re: cheap mods, random thoughts and lessons unlearned

Nice! Just curious why you went away from naked. I love the look of a naked with Suburban Machinery or similar handlebars, and bar end mirrors, which is what I have and it looks like you have in...

Re: Old man, new bike. Seattle.

Welcome. 58 isn't that old - I'll be there before too long. My daughter lives in Seattle so at some point I'll be getting out that way. How is the riding there?

Re: Official New York City SV thread

Re: Recommended hand guards for SV650 2017

I have barkbusters. They came with the bike from its previous owner, but I have to mount them upside down since I went to SM2 bars. I assume they wouldn't hold up well in a crash, but they do help...

Re: 2003 SV650-Should I avoid

I'm also a naked '03 haver, and agree with the previous posts and am happy with my bike. With the minor exceptions noted previously, it's the same as 04 on, so finding most parts isn't a problem and...

Re: NYST track day update.

It seems they brought this on themselves by misrepresenting themselves in the original application then the planning board switching it behind closed doors. The good news is that they seem to still...

Re: Anyone racing NE WERA this year?

Re: 05 SV650S Stolen. I hate my life. What next?

You can check craigslist to see if it's being parted out but when my previous bike was stolen the police said that most likely it would be exported to some country where they don't worry about things...

Re: Winters and storage

If you don't have stands you can just roll it forward or back a few inches every week or so to prevent flat spots.

Re: Will ez pass work in jacket pocket?

Re: Is changing sprockets and chain simple?

Or have an assistant hold the rear brake down for you. I agree a chain and sprocket switch is not a hard piece of wrenching.

Re: New battery, bike won't start. Help?

Here's a long shot, but easy enough to check and rule out - the tip over sensor is attached to the front of the battery box. Any chance it was dislodged when installing the new battery?

Re: Rear shock removal and adjustment.

I used some empty 40-lb cat litter barrels under the pegs, but 5-gallon paint or joint compound containers should do the trick as well. And I didn't bother to flip the pegs. I was able to position...
