I still commute on my bike from Hoboken to Sheepshead Bay, just on my Honda 599 these days.

I have a set of grip guards off my old first gen 650. Bike is gone, these are left behind.

The only bolts I have is what you see pictures so might need some ingenuity to mount but the bar-end spacers are there.

I can let them go for $FREE. No low balls, please, price is firm.

New-to-me SV owner checking in. Anyone here do gymkhana at Floyd Bennet Field? Usually every-other Sunday morning. There's a Facebook group I think. I will try to go this Sunday (not on the SV... waiting on DMV).

Any recommendations for local-ish shops to do suspension work/setup? I was going to go to Washington Cycle in NJ. Or Bauce Racing?

I will try to make it there today. Wanted to do gymkhana for a long time and thought it was illegal at Floyd Bennett field.

Not sure about a suspension specialist in town, but The Lurk shop/ Vaxmoto in Gowanus/ Brooklyn (Butler Street) has a very good mechanic with tons of experience working on SV's for the track.

Hey,

got back from Bennett field earlier today. I've been going out there for the last several sessions. They're really fun, and it's been informative as hell. Man, I would appreciate another SV rider to compare notes with. There's a dude with a Vstrom, but I feel like with the CG difference, it's apples and oranges.

I'm still trying to figure out which gear to put it in in order to make it work right. I haven't done the TPS mod, but at some point I think I'm gonna have to. I feel like I'm really fighting.

Anyway, you should def try and make it to the next one. PM me if you wanna know.
