K3 SV1000 Refurbish

I bought this back toward the end of March. It seemed like a good deal when I found it on craigslist, but it was in more rough shape than I originally thought. The paint was scuffed quite a bit, the Two Brothers slip ons were scuffed up and faded, the mileage was off because of an aftermarket sprocket, and the fork seals were shot. The fork oil was leaking down the forks and the front wheel was covered in oil. I still think it was a great deal.

What it looked like when I got it home. It's missing a black frame cover at the moment.

The new flush mount signals installed in the front fairing.


Front forks removed.


The oil was diiiiirty and had water mixed in with it.


I bought a billet aluminum fender eliminator off eBay for $20 and painted it black. I don't think I could have found a better deal.

Re: K3 SV1000 Refurbish

Anyone ever seen an air filter this bad? I've realized the previous owner did absolutely jack sh*t to maintain this bike.


Tonight I decided to try and make the slip ons look a bit better. They turned out a lot better than I expected.

After:


Installed back on the bike:

Re: K3 SV1000 Refurbish

Got the tank and seats back on


Took the rear wheel off in order to clean the swing arm and install new sprockets. The owner before me never cleaned it. It was completely filthy.


New stock size sprocket and cleaned rear wheel


Seeing it like this makes me want to covert it to a naked. I think I may eventually.
