My SV has...

20,000 miles!


Purchased April, 2004 with 1,200 miles.
No long distance ride, but it's been out pretty much every weekend from November-February.
SV is my 6th bike that I've ever owned.
Knowing all my previous bikes died from overly working, this one has long way to go. :laughing6
6 trackdays, one drop at a parking lot, no crash, no ticket (on the record ), very little close calls, no mechanical failure...
It been such a great bike for me.
I promised I'll give a nice long bath after Thanksgiving rides that I put 1,100 miles over 4 days.

I really love my SV.


List of Mods:
Leo Vince carbon slip on exhaust
Dynoed
636 shock
Rear set jack up plates
Undertail
Flush mounts
Frame sliders
Passenger seat cover
Carved seat (by 2")

List of replacements:
3 sets of tires
One rear tire
Spark plugs
RK gold chain
Sprockets
Air filter
Oil change every 3.000 miles with full synthetic oil
Chain cleaned every 400 miles
Fork oil replaced
Rim repaired

11 25 06a

After a long ride.
Bug face!

Mighty SV

And "Frame slider". Just one. No need to put them on *both* sides of the bike.

Say.... Who repaired your wheel?

Your supposed to clean the chain? I thought by spraying lube on it it freed up all the gunk to fly off, sort of like a clean lube all at once kinda deal?

I am a little shy from the 30k mark myself, should hit it on Monday. So, that would be 21.3k miles in 16 months... Might have to actually clean the air filter and adjust the valve clearances this time. (OEM clutch still holding) Delvac 1300 every 2500-3k miles.

I repaired mine at A1.
Awesome job with great price.
281-376-9477

I use Motorex Chain Clean 611.
It takes all the junk outta chain.
Awesome stuff.

One way to clean chain.
