Thought I'd start a thread to see if there were any other Inmates here that had a Suzuki SV650 as their bike of choice. Mine's a 2003 that started it's life as a naked model, purchased 5 years ago with a little over 7000 miles As the miles started adding up I wanted something with a bit more wind protection. About the same time I realized the shortcoming of the bike's stock suspension and upgraded that as well, as many SV owners do. Throw on a GSXR front end and a better rear shock and the bike was transformed. Add clip ons with 3" extra rise and a Corbin built taller than stock and the bike eats the miles up and laughs at the twisties it encounters along the way. Farkles include full audio with AmpliRider amp (remote volume for all output by left hand) Garmin Zumo linked to my helmet, Sirius radio, and heated gear hookup. Now, with just over 101,000 miles on her, she does seem to be tiring out a bit and burning a bit of oil. While still running well and getting great mileage, I may start looking for a used engine soon, and plug that sucker in like a 9V battery, and just keep going. Aside from normal maint, it had it's valves 1st checked at (get this) 72,000 miles and they were still in spec.! There are quite a few other bikes I have lusted over, but none I think that would have been this fun. So post up here if you own and travel on your SV650. No Weestroms here lol. My bike can pretty much do what your wee can outside of bashing over logs. Who knows though...my next engine could come from a wee.
