Thumbs up ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE ON SV650's ?

Just bought my SV650 and LOVE IT!! Curious as to how many others are out there with these great bikes and there experiences with them. Any links to aftermarket exhaust sites would be appreciated.

Thumbs up Ooooh! Oooooh! Me! That's Me!

Welcome to the cult! You picked a great bike! How'd you get a yellow one in FL? Did you import it from Canada?

Like Tristan said, www.svrider.com is the best resource for everything SV. I found all my mods on that site.

I've personally got a Yosh RS-3 pipe on mine, but if I had the money I would have put a Renegade dual high rise pipe on. A lot of people go with M4 for their pipe of choice as well. You will want to look into re-jetting the bike if you replace the exhaust system. Mine ran too rich ( I think) after we switched. I chose a stage 1 jet kit for mine, as I mainly ride on the street and I'm not a racer.

Welcome to SBW also!

ELO, didnt you mean it ran too lean after you

I dont have one.....yet....but I am looking to get
one for a track bike.

Penske shock, Ohlins steering dampner, Lindemann forks, Sharkskinz body work, Full Yoshimura RS-3 Titainium / carbon fiber exaust system, Yosh digital tach with built in temp gauge, Yosh clip-ons, WRM rearsets to name a few. Motor was built and tuned by G-force racing engines.

Yellow SV

I don't how it got down here, but they had a yellow one in the showroom and sold it to me for $5348/ before TT&T. I hope this was a good deal..... I know it was worth it after I rode it the first time.

It backfired about every two minutes. Doesn't that mean it's running too rich?


Anyway, that's a pretty good deal for a brand new SV. The yellow really looks good, and few people have them this side of the border!

I suppose it could mean that, but, typically
a bike would come lean from the factory & then
adding on an aftermarket exhaust would cause it
to run even leaner.
What the heck do I know, I'm lucky to change
my oil....lol..

Thumbs up

Well, that's what it did, and re-jetting it fixed the problem. Obviously, I had someone who knows a lot more than I do the work!

Honestly, I would have put the stage 1 in even if I hadn't replaced the exhaust, because there's a flat spot between 4500 and 6000 rpms. It's not bad, but definitely noticable.

Elo- stop confusing the newbie! It's Renegade, not Reaction and M4, not M3. The yellow is one of the 2002 US colors for the naked SV.

Suck mean people!

Okay, okay! I formally recuse myself from posting here anymore today! I'm obviously too tired to pay attention to what I type! (but it's still true that few people in the US have stock yellow SV's! )

SV650Rider, I am still awake enough to know that you should definitely listen to what these other people have to say!
