I wanted to watch the Avalanche game today but didnt feel like sitting on the couch for three hours.

So I took the bedroom TV out to the garage and removed the warning stickers from the frame, tank and fairing while watching the game.

Set Up:


Sticker Free!




Since Im out here dorking around I was wondering what other cheap easy things I can do.

All suggestions welcome.

Thanks,
Ben

i pulled a couple of stickers off awhile ago too, i think it helps clean it up a bit. i don't like the reflectors on the front forks, so i pulled those off too, the empty holes aren't that noticeable i think.

normally when i have nothing to do on it really, i just check fluid levels, tire pressure, plugs...simple stuff. or i will clean it up really well, totally get under the pipe and get all the grime cleaned off of it.

I gave her a soapy wipe down. Scrubbed to bugs off the front, wiped down the undertail. Would like to get a hugger back there. Im not big into total detailing. Its just going to get dirty next time its out.

Now that Im thinking about it. The previous owner put a Hot Bodies undertail on and the turn signals blink really fast.

I have read that you can put relays in the line to slow it down but I don't know where I read that. Could someone explain that to me or send me a link.

Thanks!

what kind of levers do you have?
Those were already on there when I got the bike. Removing the stickers is the only thing Ive ever done to change the bike from the way I got it.

They're on ebay, about $18. Search for "SV650 levers" and you'll find a ton of them, they come in black, CF, and silver.

i don't really see a difference at all. the second one just has the picture with both the lenses being clear/smoke as the first one has the picture with one amber and one clear/smoke.
