    Just joined, and just bought this last fall. Looking forward to putting some miles on her! 2001 SV650 with 3,000 miles!

    Where on earth was a mint looking 12 year old SV with 3k miles hiding? :huh Not even broken in yet...
    I picked up a clean '99 with about 20k last fall and was thrilled to find it! Enjoy it, they're great bikes.

    Beautiful old-style SV man, thats a really nice find.
    I had a red SV650S for about 8 years and absolutely loved it. I'm sure you will enjoy the heck out of yours!

    Two tips, just in case you hadn't already heard this advice... (both for rain)

    -pay some attention to the front spark plug. Get some form of appropriate grease around that area to prevent water getting into the plug/cap.

    - make sure that the little overflow channel in the inside filler cap area is not bunged up, or you'll likely get water in the gas and wonder why its running on one all of a sudden.

    Minor things both, and easily prevented. Other than that mine just kept on going with no issues at all.
    Love that engine!

    Thanks guys, and thanks for the advice! You would want to kill me if you knew how much I paid for it aka on the cheap! :evil I got to put a few miles on it last year, but I'm dying for Spring to get here so I can enjoy it even more!

    Will be sad to see the DR go to a new home. I accepted a deposit today, and the new owner will take her away on Saturday.

    This is by far the nicest looking bike I've seen in a while! Looks so nice in all black. What year is it?

    Thanks! It's a 2007. I did the work myself, but the design credit goes to Hammarhead's Jack Pine Scrambler. I saw his and thought it would work well for desert roads.
