    I just bough a 2001 sv650s (7k miles) with a few mods:

    TCP Aerodynamics Lower Fairings , two wheel junkie rear huggers,
    Full micron CF exhaust, micron jet kit
    K&N filter, Pyramid Plastics seat crowl (not shown in pic),
    LED clear tails, clean tank protector,
    Flush mount blinkers all around (VERY unvisible), Holeshot fender eliminator


    Picked it up for $3,900. Let me know what you think :)

    I'm looking to pick up an SV650 this spring. I'm a fan of the naked one, but either would be fun. Looks clean. ENJOY!!

    They dont, as long as they are all disconnected. In VA, if you have signals they must work properly. If you have front or rears disconnected but have the others still on the bike you will fail.

    Otherwords, make sure they all work, or remove all of them.

    come on now, if you wanted to buy a v twin you should pick up an RC51, something that is not a womans bike.

    His second post, about going "185mph in a 40 zone" isn't any better. :greddy:

    BTW Rab- When those tires wear out, dump em. The stock Metz Z4's = :down:
    Try the Bridgestone BT010 front and BT020 rear combo.

    hahaha nice bike John...looked real clean when you brought it by my house. Hopefully I'll have my f4 in MD for the summer and we can go riding. Much more fun roads to drive on up there then in Florida. But I'm not complaining, I was just out riding last night and it was like 65 degrees :bigthumb: So Perfect.

    Great looking bike. I had an SV-650 when I got the Busa. Just sold it recently. Plan on buying the VStrom 650 which is based on the SV.

    Had fun beating bigger/faster bikes in the curves. Not always, just often.
