    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.

    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...

    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...
  7. 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'...

    Hi Everyone, I am brand new to this community because I just bought my first "big" bike (started on an 89 NX250), a 2002 naked SV650. I was riding home one night and, just my luck, flew over the top of it when my rear spun out on some crap on the road. Banged up the bike pretty good. I've...

    I have ordered a replacement regulator rectifier, the one that has arrived came from a SV650S injection model of the same year and has 1, 3 pin connection and 1, 4 pin connection. The original has 1, 2 pin connection and 1, 3 pin connection. Does someone know how to wire this up to the bike or...
