    I ran over an electric scooter (one of those god-forsaken scooter-share ones...) at ~65mph on the freeway. I landed straight, immediately noticed I'd lost pressure in the clutch lever and began leaking oil, but was able to pull over and wait for a tow. Here's what I've found so far: "Outer"...

    Hi! I'm working on a superkart from a half trashed SV650. been trying to get the engine to spark, CDI seems intact( no shorts ) Coils also seem to be good, from what multimetering madness I could guess my way to atleast so many possible switches that could disable me from getting a spark such as...

    I'm sure many here know what I was doing to starve the front cylinder of oil. I knew better before I did it 😅 Now it has a nasty knock in the bottom end and a lot of clatter from the top of the front cylinder. It is time to put a new engine in it. My mechanical skills are mainly from the...

    Got my new all balls wheel bearings in and I went to put the new seal on the sprocket bearing. Currently the id of the seal is about 2-3mm away from the inner race of the bearing. That's not normal right? Can't seem to get the seal to go any lower (and I'm dreading cleaning the old bearing to...

    Just got my wheel bearings out and I have learned that I will never again replace my own bearings (excepts maybe the steering bearings since they are beyond shot and I imagine it'll be easier than the rims). Heating with a blow torch worked wonders. My question is when I go to place the new ones...

    So a while ago I threw in a 1300r shock (listing stated 99-07 so fuck if I know the exact year). At the time I knew nothing about suspensions at all other than the shitty flip-up fender eliminator I bought the bike with kept coming into contact with the tire seriously fucking with my plate so I...

    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...

    Hello, I’m looking to install a koso dl-03sr gauge(my OEM gauge is cracked). I have little to no experience. I have most of the wiring figured out, but not sure what to wire for the engine light and tachometer. Any info is much appreciated I’ve included my bikes wiring diagram as well as the...

    Hello! I have this 04 sv650 that recently had to have the front cylinder head replaced due to a seize and broken off spark plug. After putting a new head gasket in the front and getting all of the valves, front and back, sorted to correct tolerances the bike now has a hard time keeping its self...

    I have a 2004 sv650 naked... So I was riding to work, and suddenly my bike made a horrible crunching noise. Now when the bike is in neutral kickstand up and clutch in, it will start up (doesnt sound too healthy though), even when in neutral and i release the clutch it cuts out, but doesn't seem...

    Hi all, I have a problem and hope someone can maybe point me in the right direction. Last week the oil/engine light came on combined with an F1 code. I was pretty far from home so just kept driving. Nothing weird on first sight. But eventually I discovered that my idle speed had tanked to...

    I recently purchased aftermarket turn signals for my 99' SV because my left signal was burnt out. When I was wiring up the new signals in the front, I shorted the left signal by touching the positive and neutral crimps together. I was too excited to see if they worked before I taped them. Now...

    Hey SVsquad, Are there any women or know of any women who've ridden the SV650? I am 110lbs, 5'3 and I went halves on a old, broken down, SV650 with my ex. We fixed it up and I started learning to ride on it. Then of course he sold it. I've always ridden on the back of my dads cruisers, friends...

    Just bought an 02' SV. Currently sorting through the bike, but I can't figure out where this connector is supposed to go and what it is for.
  15. SV650 Gen1 (99-02) Tech
    So as the title says, I tried adjusting the chain without a rear-wheel stand since the manual didn't mention needing one, but the main mistake was not loosening the axle nut while gripping the nug on the other end. The chain adjuster on the kick stand's side tightened accordingly but when I went...

    August 17 2020 I had to lay my baby down on the freeway in Hawaii. I wear full gear and not a scratch on me but... my bike took a major hit she still runs great but the left side was down and it hooked under the car in front of me and the lady did not even know she drug it for about 500 feet...

    After riding at dusk the other day, and not being able to see my speed or read the tachometer. I decided to go and get new bulbs for it. I got some bulbs and they didnt completely match the wattage but the guy at the auto parts store said that they would work the same just might be brighter. But...

    Hey all, first post on this site. I've been searching around for a while about this issue but I feel like I'm still at square one. Over the past few months my sv650 has been making a weird noise and performing oddly only when going up steep hills. Whether starting from a standstill, or hitting...
  19. SFV650 Gladius (09-15) Tech
    Hey everyone. I've got a '13 Gladius that I love to death. The only thing I don't love is the headlight and the multimeter. They honestly drive me a little crazy. The problem is that I can't seem to find a single replacement for the Multi-meter that's not a really cheap piece from 'Wish.com'...

    Hey everyone just got a SV650 ran great then started having idle issues where it was running super rough and now dying, new spark plugs and previous owner put a new fuel pump in, I removed the fuel pump today, and this wire was frayed to where it was barely hanging on and snapped with very...
