Hi All!

I'm Bennette! I'm in between Washington, DC and North Carolina due to Coronavirus, but I just bought a 2019 Suzuki SV650X!

I also started a Instagram to chronicle my Moto Journey! JBHIII (@americanerrant) • Instagram photos and videos

I would love to connect with any and all of you there. I'm already thinking about mods and would love to know what has worked for you guys.

Hello from Southern Ontario also.
Just got 2001 SV650S a month ago, it’s my second bike, before I had Yamaha YZF600.

Great to meet you all!

Howdy from Modesto ca. Recently revived a 2007 sv650 naked bike. Actually built her for my gal Jennifer so she could ride with me. We got the bike on a lien sale and she was pretty rough. Fortunately I was able to hear her run and thought the engine sounded pretty good. I took a chance and trailered her home. After changing all suspect mechanical parts, chain, sprockets,cables,brake lines, and pads. Also had to find a fan, mirrors, blinkers, levers and a grab rail. Suzi is now running, I need to get a vin verification and then we're good to go. It's been a blast finding all the parts we needed and putting her together. Parts are fairly common and generally not too expensive. I opted for a Chinese knock off Akrapovic slip on which I thought was very nice. Decent quality and easy to install. I love the way she sounds. So buy July 18th we should be ready to ride, registration and insurance in hand.

Hello from Scotland!

I passed my test last October and bought myself this SV650.

Added a R&G tail tidy with extension and rectangular rear reflector, moved the side reflectors to the front forks, fitted the Acerbis hand guards and the Suzuki screen which I got stripes put on to match the tank.

Rode just over 5,000 miles so far and loving it.

Cheers. If you look closely it’s got a bit of surface rust and some paint chips from riding during the winter, but it’s going in for a service next month and getting tidied up. I was in the Trossachs last weekend, some great twisties and equally amazing views
