I figured I should start a build thread since there's more work to be done, and already plenty thats been done. I got this 2001 Sv650s(K1) for 2100$ out the door, a little over priced I think, since there were some glaring issues after close inspection lol.
On the way back from the shop I bought it at:
She's parked in the garage:
My roommate notices a leak, I just freaking got it home!!!:
Not to mention the radiator bracket was broken:
Couldn't resist going on a ride the next day, got a nail in a brand new tire lmao:
Plugged it up when I got home.
I got a like new radiator from a G2 model off ebay for 60$, got it installed under warranty by the shop.
Got new tank pads for my bday, woot woot!:
With the leak sorted out, I really wanted to upgrade the dinky headlights after a night ride from my moms house. Got the SpeedMetal LED kit from cycle gear, Here are the images:
Realized I didn't need to unscrew anything afterall.
Started to get a feel for the bike and noticed the brakes should be a little more snappy. So I took off the pads and found this abomination:
Removed the foam that tends to obstruct the intake:
Added the R6 throttle tube!:
The dirty old one
New Throttle cables and Clutch cable, and worm gear. Forgot to take pics of those lol
