Too many miles. You can find an untold number of bikes, including the SV line up, with less than 5000 miles on it. Remember, all the rubber, all the bearings, swingarm, steering head, everything is getting loose, and it just might end up costing more than the bike is worth in repairs over time. Like I mentioned in another thread, I sell my stuff no later than 60,000 miles, and with me riding them, are getting pretty tired, you can definitely feel looseness in the chassis, the engine isn't tight any more, and they are well on their way to getting worn out.
