Bikes For Sale / 2005 SV650S, 33k miles, Clean Title
« Last post by O.C. SV650S on Today at 12:49 PM »
2005 Suzuki SV650S with 32,966 miles.  Bike was my freeway commuter until I bought my BWM last September. 

SV was always garage kept, never sat outside overnight.  Bike was originally yellow when I bought it.  The original owner low sided the bike at about 10 mph on a city street; first bike he had ever ridden.  He was so scared by the incident that he parked the bike in his garage until I bought it in 2012.  Clean title, never reported to his insurance as the damage was minor.

Bike needed a little TLC when I got it.  I redid the paint scheme as you can see in the photos below.  Front fairing and rear tail pieces are factory 2005 blue parts.  Front fender, tank and rear tire hugger are factory 2005 yellow parts.  The solo cap was painted by Southland Suzuki's (the one in garden grove) Suzuki certified factory painter.  Which means the painter used the factory color codes and his years of experience painting for Suzuki to ensure the colors are correct.  Anyways, the solo cap is blue with the insert painted yellow to bring the whole bike together.

Bike has some upgrades.  From front to back:

120/70 front tire (instead of the stock 120/60, drops into corners a little better)
Racetech fork internals
BMW M3 Headlight projectors with DDM Tuning HID lights.
Low profile front blinkers
Steel braided brake lines front and back (silver lines with blue ends)
ASV shorty levers
Woodcraft Frame protectors/sliders
Rear tire hugger
License plate delete
Under seat blinkers (can't remember the company that makes it, but you can see the integrated blinkers in the photo
Rear brake light with integrated blinkers
Back off brake module (rear brake flasher unit, flashes 4 times then stays solid on.)
Yoshimura slip-on exhaust
Clutch relay, so you don't have to pull in the clutch to start the bike.
Not pictured:
Spare rear rim, with sprocket and tire.
Rear passenger grab rail

Tires are Pilot Road 4's with a ton of life still on them.  The valves were recently done and are within spec.  I did all of the oil changes at home and used either Repsol or Motul synthetic oils.  Bike runs strong and was a good commuter for a number of years for me.  Since buying the BMW last year, I think I've ridden the SV maybe three times.  It's time for her to find a new home so that I can buy my gal a wedding ring.

Asking $2,500.  I shouldn't have to say this, but low-ball offers won't be entertained.  Please be respectful.

Come check this bike out and help a brother get engaged.

Misc / Re: Balancing the tire : beads vs the old fashion block tags

I have been running Dyna beads now for 10 years in my R6 that has over 73,000 miles.  First few years I had a shop mount tires and they had no issues with the beads.  I then started mounting tires myself and was easily able to recover beads to use in next set of tires.  Never even know they were there and no annoying stick-on weight glue to clean after each tire change.
