Re: road tax

Without wishing to sound pedantic, but it has been called VED for a long time & councils do get specific pots of money from the Government for road maintainance.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Try Graphite Grease instead & see if that helps. Sometimes when you have a mix of materials (aluminium fork leg/steel screw/coppa slip) it's not as effective asa each one reacts & behaves...

Re: SV650 AL7 problem

I think potentially its a fuel supply issue. Try opening the filler cap next time it does this. Give it 30 seconds or so, close it then try to start the bike. Also check the over flow & breather pipe...

Re: SV650 AL7 problem

Does it sound like its firing, or is it a clean turn over with no coughing in to life?
Does it stink of fuel after it finally fires up?
How does it run after this episode? Smooth, a bit lumpy?

Re: Pothole damage

That's a good thing if they come out . . . if they're aware of it they're liable for any damage

Re: Pothole damage

^^ This

If they are not aware of it, they're not liable. Most councils have an interactive map on their website to see if it has been reported.

You have to submit an invoice for the damage...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

You could also try RainX Anti fog. Prevents any misting up on the visor.

Re: Madness

IIRC it's some sort of legislation or rule that says the rear wheel can't be the most rearward part. Which is why the mudguard or splash guard protrudes beyond the rear wheel.

Re: Your Favourite All-Weather Tyres for the SV ?

i used to ride my bike in all weathers, sunny days to torrential rain. I became a big fan of Michelin Pilot Power 2CT. Heat up really quick, maintain heat and a very well balanced tyre. Tread is nice...

Re: SV650 warranty

It's any vat registered garage, so you choose who does it. If they are going to be held responsible for a warranty claim (manufacturing defect) they need to know it's been serviced correctly. A...

Re: SV650 warranty

Same here, but i don't tarnish all garages with the same brush. If i find a good one i'll stick with it. If not i'll do most things myself and they can do an oil & filter change for a stamp in the...

Re: SV650 warranty

It's true for every manufacturer. With paperwork and an invoice they can prove the work was carried out as per their guidelines.
Just get a garage to service the oil for the sake of it to keep the...

Re: Moving on from the SV650 - Goldylocks Problem

I've not ridden a GT, but if it's anything like the ST they're developed really well.
Belt drive is great - no maintenance. Just keep an eye on the tension and condition of the teeth. BMW say 20k...

Re: Moving on from the SV650 - Goldylocks Problem

I had an F800ST, the predecessor to the GT. It was a great bike and handled everything i threw at it. I'd have another one again in a heart beat.

Re: Low beam not working.

Daft question, but does the low beam part of the bulb work? Is the filament in tact?
