Hey guys... I know how much you... and everyone else that rides, absolutely love SV650s... so I found one on craiglist and went to check it out today with a friend of mine. The bike is 2005 with 10k miles and the guy is selling it for $3,300. I want to ask you guys before I buy it... what should I look for mechanically? Are there any known issues with SVs I should be aware of? The guy that's selling it is in his 40s but he bought the bike from a friend who bought it not too long ago and was going to use it as a track bike but then she got deployed from NC to go to Iraq. The seller has a nice touring BMW with 99k, a Harley, and just sold his wife's VSTROM 650 yesterday... I am not sure if he is flipping bikes or not but that's not my problem. My friend that test drove it is 42, had been riding for over 20 years so he knows bikes but he is not a mechanic or nothing... he said that bike rides nicely and there is no clicking or anything else with transmission or engine. I posted in main forum but I am not getting any responses today. Here is the link to that thread. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=4217768 The bike has that one scratch from a driveway drop and thats why the guy is selling it below low retail on NADA which is $3,325 I believe. Also, what is the max I should pay for this bike? $3,000? The guy that test drove it said it's worth every penny at $3,300.
