    General Motorcycle Discussion
    Hello everyone, looking for some professional opinion on a debate i currently have with myself on my next bike. Currently trying to decide weather i want to go with a Duke 690 or an SV 650, both latest gen. Both offer what I am looking for which is low range available torque, but the packages...
  2. Suzuki SV650. Can’t figure out what’s wrong!!!

    Motorcycle Repair
    Hi all. First time posting and I’m hoping someone, anyone, has had the same problem I’m having or have some idea about what’s going on I bought a 2000 sv 650 as a daily rider. Nothing fancy, just something to get around that has a little zip. Bike rode great for a few months but then started...
  3. Engine starts rough, dies. Fuel issue?

    Motorcycle Repair
    Hey everyone! I recently bought a very used 2001 Suzuki SV650s. It was cheap, so no surprise that I've been having some problems. The latest: it won't run. Well, kind of. So it will start in full choke, and respond some to the throttle. It runs a bit irregular, but it runs. If I give it...
  4. Brought the new baby home yesterday.

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    So I finally upgraded. A 2003 Suzuki SV1000S in nearly perfect condition. I want to raise up the bars a bit and put the seat cowl on the rear, but other than that I love it. Almost perfect as is. Any suggestions for bars that make it more comfortable and less aggressive? I'm looking for more...

  6. How much mileage is TOO much mileage?

    Sport Bike As First Bike
    I want to buy this 2005 sv650 (naked). However, the price the owner is asking for is a little off in my opinion. That is based, on the other bikes I have seen for sale online and in different show rooms. The bike has just under 30,000 miles and the owner is asking $3,500 for it. Is that too...

  8. Trying to decide on a first bike

    First Bike / New Rider
    Hi everyone, I'm registered to take the MSF Basic RiderCourse next weekend, and so I've obviously been spending a lot of free time researching bikes and looking up ads in the classifieds and on Craigslist. I've never ridden before in my life, so I want something that will help me learn the...
  9. SV650 or SV650S

    I am a brand new rider with nothing more than a bit of dirt bike experience under my belt. I will be taking the MSF class in a couple weeks and im counting down the days until I get my first bike. I have pretty much decided on the SV650 but I much prefer the looks of the SV650S. I will be mostly...
  10. Which bike is best?

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I am about to be a new motorcycle owner. I am 19 and a student in college. I have decided to get a bike because I have always wanted one and it is also financially a much cheaper idea than buying a car. I have fairly minimal experience with bikes. My question is: Which bike should I get? I...
