The SV has worn out main bearings, I'm not sure what the other's issue was. Both bikes were well maintained from new. I don't think '80k miles' and 'forever' are compatible.

2009 V-Strom

Hello all - GREAT forum - lots of info!

Just picked up a "used" 2009 V-Strom 650 with 1900 miles - its IMMACULATE!

Bought is as seen here in my garage - the guy upgraded it perfectly to my specs! (Givi panniers, Givi crash bars, skid plate, Conti TKC80's, barkbusters, Madstad windscreen bracket, I am taking off the DIY Pepsi-crate rear rack and hope that GrauTier hits me back soon for one of his rack extensions.

My 05 DRZ 400SM I bought last May. This was what it looked like the day I bought it.


This is what it looks like now.
