    Experiencing some problems after installing an aftermarket gauge. My bike was having troubles turning over, the bike will sometimes start. When it does it idles alright and I can rev the engine just fine. However, when I put the kickstand up it will die or when put it into gear it dies. It’s...

    2005 SV. Had the bike for a year with no issue. Was riding Friday and made it about 2 miles from the house when the bike went from 45 to an idle and was not taking any gas. Got pulled over, turned off, back on, no dice. The fuel pump still primes, coolant looked good, no problem with temp at...

    This is my first bike and I was riding it, getting use to the clutch. When I was almost done with my u turn the bike fell and the clutch lever did bend a little. I was able to bend the clutch lever back into place but when I try to start the bike again, nothing happens. When I say nothing...

    Hi. I just bought a 2001 SV650 (my first big bike) 3 days ago and am really hoping you can help. I know very little about bikes sorry. When the bike arrived it wouldn't start for at least 20 seconds, but then started. (The bike was started the night before, but not started/run before that for 2...

    Hi everyone ! Going nuts over this issue. Looking forward to hear from the community. I can hear the starter running, but the engine won't crank. Spraying some carb cleaner straight in the carbs makes the engine run for a few seconds, so I'm guessing the spark plugs are working, and leaning...

    // I had a video of my second start attempt but as a new user I am not allowed to include links. I would try to include it in the next post Hello fellow SV riders! I have an issue starting my bike but I know it could be very hard to diagnose a problem over the internet so I will try to be as...
