    Used BMC FM343/04 air filter. BMC makes great filters, that are reusable like K&N, but they are made in Italy and the consensus is they are better quality. Its in good used condition, not cracked, frayed or anything like that. I have the original retail box it came in, and the price tag on it...

    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...

    Hello,, I recently got a SV650 gen2 as my first bike and loving it so far! I did notice that it has different tyre brands for the front and rear. The front is a Bridgestone Battlax BT023 and the rear is Michelin Pilot Road 4, both fairly new. So far it seems fine but as its my first bike I...

    Hi all, I have an SV650, I'm a short gal at 5'3 and after an hour or so of riding I can't feel my hands and my wrists hurt. I want to put bar risers on as the standard bar height is too heavy on my hands. But I'm not sure how to fit them or what type to get. I've phoned round the bike shops and...

    Hello wonderful SV Riders, I've had this gorgeous bike for a bit over a year now, and it's brought me lovely headaches, one after another. In a nutshell, I've been working on my carbs, I first had a leak through the overflow tubes from the front carb, replaced the needle, filter, rubber o...

    I’ve been thinking of repainting my ‘01 naked but the fuel tank decal is making me a little nervous. After searching the boards it seems pretty clear that the decal is applied under the clear coat and is essentially impossible to remove. One commenter suggested simply painting over the decal...

    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...

    so I have a SV650 K6, when you switch on the ignition the light and dash come on, the fuel relay clicks and works, and the fuel pump begins to prime but cuts out and therefore leaves you unable to start the bike, the fuel pump has been bypassed to test if it works and it does, so why doesnt...

    My right light next to the main headlight went out, so I thought it would be an easy fix by replacing the light bulb. Turns out, I needed to make a new grounding wire for the next light to connect to the wires inside of the headlight. Once everything was connected and I turned my bike on, all...

    Hi guys... Hoping for a suggestion for a 1st Gen shock option that will give me a better ride on rough roads. Preferably a minimally invasive (no remote reservoir) eBay take off, that is still available in 2020. :) Looking for a softer ride. Not track performance, unless that's included. :-)...

    Hey all, I was having issues with my bike at low Rpms, and my mechanic friend discovered the compression is a little low and a slight air leak from one of the gaskets on the rear cylinder, having some hard time finding the right gaskets for what I need, any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    Looking at buying another sv650 but someone attempted to steal it and destroyed the ignition lock. The current owner bought a generic ignition lock but now the bike only turns over but will not start. Ran fine before, assuming they only messed with the lock, what could be the cause? Immobilizer?
