Hey guys figured I'd update you after all this time.

I ended up selling the SV650S and buying a Husky SM610, carb'd model. It's a huge difference but I'm really enjoying the supermoto life :)

See you guys around!

So my bike was broken for a few months...

The rear adjuster bolt on the left side of the bike snapped and the chain jumped the sprocket. This was not before a significant portion of the chain slammed forward breaking my shift rod, shift rod oil gasket, and clutch cover bolt before jamming itself between the magneto cover and the front sprocket. Lots of fun stuff. I got the bike towed home and it sat for a while.

Cutting off the old chain.







This can't be undone.







Pretty sure bolts aren't supposed to be bent that way...







Here's the new shift rod next to the old one.







This all got broken the day I tried to test drive on my newly rebuilt forks. I used 15wt fork oil, 1.0kg springs, and installed new fork bushings and oil seals. I did that not two weeks after I replaced the ignition. The old key and ignition stopped working. I haven't taken apart the old ignition but I'm not even sure I should. The new one works perfectly all of the time. :D

So yeah. new ignition, fork springs, emulators, fork bearings, fork oil, sprockets, chain, clutch rod, clutch rod seal, clutch cover bolts, rear axle adjusters, and she's all back to normal! I'll change the oil and tires soon. :)

wow... it's like every automotive community with a "chit-chat" forum has Maryland with an outrageously long thread that noone else can come close to :)
