Yes, you can haul a bunch of luggage and stuff. Givi and others make windshields that fit it, there is pretty complete aftermarket support for the SV.

Yeah I totally failed with grammar in that post. I know of the ER-6n but, still no ABS support in the USA which is a killer for me. I figure that if I'm paying for a new bike, I'm going to buy ABS.

So, SV>Ninja in that sense for my particular reasons. However, the Strom is still a contender...the only killer is knowing that it weighs so much more, even though it's supposed to be used for off roading as well. I was hoping for something lighter than my CX.

SV-S has clip-ons, the SV (or SV-N, for naked) has handlebars. As said above, you can of course mod the S model as you see fit.[/QUOTE]


All right....1 more ignorant question......can I add the fairing to the SV-N? Would it would be easier to add the fairing to the SV-N than it would be to convert the bars on the SV-S? Thoughts?

It might have been asked before: does Suzuki USA still import SV-SF in 2011 or do they have a replacement (somekind of faired Gladius) for it? TIA.

Owner of a beat to heck and back 2001 SVS, and I love it. It looks just like any other SV, so I won't spam this thread with pictures.

Has anyone else had issues with their 1st Gen's R/R?

I just got my bike on the road after spending more time than I'd like to admit adjusting my valves... and my battery dies on the way to work.

I'm swapping the OEM R/R for one from a CBR600RR and I'm wiring it directly to the battery.

my r/r is still good so i decided to pre-empt any issues and wired it direct to the battery, seems ok so far.

You think you've had issue doing a valve check, whatever you don't take the carbs off, it's taken me since early jan to get the things working right

First the front plug cap played up, then the new o rings leaked, then it would not run on the rear cylinder. Balancing them was a bitch as well, all is good now tho

There is no SVN. There's an S model in the form of the SV650SA but if you want a naked bike, you have to go with the SFV650 Gladius.

Hello SV fellows. Got a few pics of my cousin on his SV while we were out breaking in my 950SM

Much to the dismay of some of us. I understand the "S" faired version was a better seller though.

I have a 2009 SV650 w/ABS. These were available in Canada. For some reason the only picture of it I have is this crappy one. I'll make it a priority to get some better ones this year.

Yeah - catering to the GSXR-types in some ways, I suppose.
