ITS BEEN 2 YEARS ON THE SV650S!!!!! Holy cow has it gone fast. 2 THINGS:- 1, IT IS MY FIRST BIKE, 2:- I have done 900(ish) motorway miles, the bike has done 17,000. T H I N G S I V E L E A R N T. Conti Road Attack tyres get SLATED (unfairly) in BIKE mag reviews, but give me 7500 miles and 2 track days with enough grip to go into winter and still get knee down in the "moist". The best upgrades are SMALL ONES. Its like many of the posts you see, they are the incremental steps which add up. If there is only one thing i now would have the original chnage is the swing arm and susps'. Apart from this, simple things like spark plugs, air filter, Scorpion Stubby (Highly Recomended) are the only other things to have different. A F T E R T W O Y E A R S.... It feels cemented, and worn like your fave gloves. It does everything perfectly, kneedown in snow, toedown in wet and peg down over Craner Curves with cheap tyres on. OH GOD i love this bike. "Girls Bike" reviewers dont last long when they see what i can do on my SV on any given day. B U Y O N E!!!!!
