I purchased this bike from a fellow MH'er back in June of 2015. I've probably done 20+ track days on it since that time.

The bike DOES have a salvage title, but I never had it transferred into my name (neither did the previous owner). When I purchased it, it had been sitting with gas in the tank for a year...tank was removed and cleaned out with new fuel pump installed.

The good:
-Galfer rotors
-EBC brake pads
-Stainless steel brake lines
-Brake calipers rebuilt
-Dunlop Q3's front and rear
-Kawasaki 636 rear shock
-I was told by previous owner that the front end was reworked by GMD Computrack with springs/emultaors...I never pulled them apart to verify (Confirmed! See posts below)
-New OEM brake master cylinder
-New fork seals and wheel bearings installed in late 2015
-Scotts Steering Damper (Serviced in 1/2017)
-Full ART Exhaust
-K&N air filter
-Adjustable rear sets (standard shift, currently)
-Wheels were stripped and painted Subaru STi gold with a polished lip.

The bad:
-Just recently the bike started running poorly. It will crank/idle fine, but seems to be down on power...will occasionally give a "pop" through the intake.
I've introduced Starter Fluid to the engine through the TB's and the bike runs perfect which leads me to the issue either being A) not enough fuel or B) too much air.




The engine appears to have good compression, you're more than welcome to test it. All wiring for instrument cluster has been tucked up under filter box.



It's been a fantastic toy to take out and rip on occasionally, but I'm ready to move on to something newer...would make a great first track bike, or if you race SV's and need a spare.

Asking $1000 OBO!!!

No, the bike is not street legal. Can it be made street legal? Yes, if you want to invest that much money into it.

PM or text if interested.

I actually found a previous for sale thread for this bike back in 2009.

https://www.motohouston.com/forums/s...ighlight=sv650

https://www.motohouston.com/forums/s...imilar%20Links

Confirmed in the 2nd thread that the front end has been reworked:
0.95 Racetech Springs
Gold Valves w/ 20 wt oil

Can you PM me a quick video of startup and a few throttle blips when you have some time?

I've always heard it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.
