I just got my bike on the road after spending more time than I'd like to admit adjusting my valves... and my battery dies on the way to work.

I'm swapping the OEM R/R for one from a CBR600RR and I'm wiring it directly to the battery.

I picked mine up yesterday

Is it normal to ride it an extra 30 miles for bread every time I have to pick up a loaf, or is it just new bike syndrome?

I recently purchased a 2005 SV650N with 4,600 miles on it. Here it is on the trailer after bringing it home. The windscreen was quite a rig and was downright ugly. The previous owner had also lowered the bike to the point of the rear tire rubbing the inner fender. They had failed to tighten the airbox cover screws, and the chain was loose to the point of being dangerous. I also had to use rubbing compound and polish to remove dark green overspray from the plastics and tank, as the previous owner must have spray painted something in close proximity to the bike.


I flushed the radiator, repainted the silver fork lowers and triples black and installed Racetech 0.90 fork springs and Racetech emulators with 10wt oil.


Finished form




Givi A750 windscreen cut down 1” with additional home-made upper support stays
Renthal Streetfighter bend road bars #789-02-BK-03-219
SW-Motech GPS mount for mounting on handlebar crossbars #GPS.00.308.11000.B
Hard-wired Garmin Zumo GPS cradle
SW-Motech mirror widener extensions


Delkevic Stubby (14”/350mm) exhaust silencer
SW-Motech Center-Stand


2003 GSX-R 750 Tokico 4-piston brakes with SV Racing Parts caliper adapter brackets and Spiegler stainless lines


Buell Firebolt XB foot-pegs #N0006.1AD


Stebel Nautilus horn and MotoSlider frame sliders


Eastern Beaver Power Center 8 fuse panel, relay/accessory-switched, with second relay visible for Stebel horn. Overkill for the bike’s needs, but I had it from a previous bike.


Additional mods not shown:
Shinko Advance tires in OEM sizes
K&N air filter
NGK CR8EIX plugs
Fenda Extenda
PAIR system removed
Backoff brake light module
DL650 mirrors

Future mods:
2006-2008 ZX-14 rear shock
Home-made mount for Givi trunk

What to look for.

I'm looking at a 2003 SV 650 for my wife. 14K miles, but looks well cared for and owner seems solid. Are there any know issues on these I should be looking for, any particular things to check?

Suspension is non adjustable on all of these bikes? Wondering what I'd need to do to make one track-worthy.

2002 SVs have adjustable fork pre-load.
Depending on your weight, stock suspension does decent job with heavier oil.

What a little gem. And I don't mean the bike, but that's nice too.

Anyone recommend an SV forum?

Not a good photo of my yellow '05 SV 650, with the Givi fairing and V-Strom hand guards, but a good photo of what it does:

I started doing track days on a 650S and then built a 1K out of a couple wrecked bikes. The 650 was fine but I wanted the 1K because it was a bit more comfortable (I'm a bigger guy) and something a wee bit faster (I'm 200# without gear). I'd be right on someone's arse thru the technical section, then as soon as we'd get to a straight, their 600 or liter bike would be gone.

As for suspension, I installed an '04 GSXR shock and went with a little heavier fork fluid. I don't do a lot of braking, so the front end works for me. I can run an intermediate pace in Intermediate without touching my brakes, unless someone in front of me does something stupid. I was using DOT tires but have switched back to Q2's or 003's because of the price.

Check out SVrider.com for good advice - I've found it to be a pretty friendly and helpful place.
