Hi,Stilo,not far from Peterborough. Where are you ?
Did you know the flag changes based on your current location? 🤔I see you are flying the Union Jack, where are you based?

I've also got a CF Moto 650 MT it's Chinese designed by KTM with a rip off of the Kawasaki 650 twin engine. It comes with panniers, abs etc. Ive had it for nearly 5 years since new been all over Europe on it, over the Alps, Pyrenees etc. It's never let me down and does 70 mpg on normal riding. They've got some new models out and are doing deals on the old stock. If you are in the UK you can get a bike for £5.2K with a 4 year warrantyDid you know the flag changes based on your current location? 🤔
@Adios500 , must be nice to have demonstrators! I was forced to buy my bike without any riding on it at all. Just went from online reviews and forums. I would say it’s about the same ‘size’ as the CB500 would be, only while being a bigger bike. Can’t see how servicing would be much different, as parts prices would be about the same… and 75mph at highway speeds? That’s a good one! I can believe it at slower speeds, though.
I’d like to say that you should actually aim higher, coming right from the CB500. Only thing is that I can’t think of anything I’d recommend that would be the same ‘value’. Especially if the practicality of a twin, especially a v-twin, is what you’re looking for. I also liked the CB650 ($$$) and the GSX-S750, but both would be much faster, and feel a lot bigger.
Best way is to make helpful comments and suggestions in the General and Technical threads. Not by barging into other people’s threads. I asked the question for you, though. You’ll be lucky if there’s any response at all.Does anyone know when I'll get permissions to reply to BST threads and send messages? I'm in a slight rush and don't want to miss out on a good deal because I cannot communicate to the seller.
Same as a parallel, but slightly different feel and sound. Much wider torque curve for when you’re caught in traffic or just lazing around in town. The SV definitely ticks all of your boxes!I agree with what you say. Factors for me, slightly more power, economical, lightweight ish, small enough to get in my shed, cheap to run, easy self maintenance, I've never owned a v twin before. Could be my last big bike before dropping to my monkey bike.
At least it was minor. The bracket you’re looking for might be called the rearset, though that’s usually everything. I’d check out used ones, and maybe @mad8vskillz has something… I would almost leave the plastic until you know you won’t be crashing ‘a bit’ anymore. 😉
Thank you guys for the advice! I've been recommended to reach out to him in the FB group as well. I will reach out to him on the 18th because he is on the vacation until then.Welcome to SVR nikruf. That's a beautiful bike. It's exceedingly hard to find gen1's that have not been pimped out. Enjoy the ride, and yes, hit Mad8v up, he'll hook you up.
Thanks for letting me know. I placed an order for the rearset. If you have an oem right front turn signal i will be happy to order it as well.i probably have other turns as well that i still need to list
