Re: Link Pipe

For both the curvy and pointy SVs, you need to cut the factory exhaust to fit an aftermarket can, and because the frame changed when the pointy was introduced in 2003, the pointy exhausts are...

Re: Always worth getting an early start on a Sunday

A dry(ish) weekend at last! Still had to wash the bike off when I got home, though. Here she is, sporting her new Yoshi TRS can:

Re: Rare ohc Trident

Interesting, although the Trident engine is a horrible lash-up job to begin with.

Re: You and Your Bike 2 (This time with RULES!) ;-)

Here's my 2017 Gen 3 with its new Yoshi TRS fitted (bought it used for 110, it was from a Bandit 1250, so I just needed to have a link pipe end-formed to fit it).

It makes a lovely deep bark but...

Re: winter is coming. for those that get cold.

I have often wondered how those eBay cheapies would compare in terms of effectiveness / longevity compared to the name-brand heated clothing.

You can heated sleeveless fleeces for about 15...

Re: One talented stunt rider

Amazing control. How many times did he fall off learning how to do all that?

Re: Building a Kawasaki H2A (750 triple)

I love those Japanese factory videos. There's an excellent one on YT from Suzuki about the RE5.

Re: Metallic sound from front on new SV

Nope, not on my AL7 either. I have noticed the pads can stick to the discs after washing, but that gets scrubbed off the first time you brake on the road.

Mind you, I fitted a Yoshi TRS last week...

Re: a refurbishing project

Reminds me of the old joke about the man who gets lost while driving in Ireland. After a while he sees a farmer leaning on a gate, pulls over and asks if he could get directions to Dublin. The...

"No access to the chain ..."

I know that I shouldn't really criticise, but some peoples' lack of knowledge about their bikes (and cars) really does beggar belief.

This has just been posted on Reddit, and it's not a joke: ...

Re: World's Smallest Mudguard award goes to...

Agree completely. I really don't like the general trend for short, stumpy styling. I like to see something over the full length of the back wheel.

Re: Is there a low mounted GP/ stumpy exhaust for curvy SV?

Companies like Black Widow, Delkevic, SP Engineering and others all do short (200mm) stumpy cans with GP-style exits. There are quite a few cheap Chinese exhausts too which can easily be mated with...

Re: 2007 SV 650 SA, front fender marking?

I can't say with 100% certainty if every bike with ABS had the 'ABS' logo on the mudguard from the factory. It is also possible he could have changed the fender ... they are only plastic and it...

Re: 2007 SV 650 SA, front fender marking?

ABS was only an option on the SVs and Gladius, so not all bikes had it (I'd say that the majority of bikes sold did NOT have ABS, as it was quite an expensive extra). ABS only became standard...

Re: SV650X on a dyno

Completely agree, but it's interesting that there's such a difference between the 4th & 5th gear runs, but only minimal differences between the 5th & 6th gear runs. As the runs were done...

Re: SV650X on a dyno

That's really interesting, but what got me is the significant difference between 4th and 5th gears. I wonder why
Suzuki mapped the ECU for more power in 5th than 4th? Emissions and noise...

Suzuki's own is the best. I can send you a PDF of the Pointy (K3-onwards) manual if you like - just send me a PM with your email address

Re: Considering putting stock muffler back on :-s

+1 to all the above. If I remember right, Fuel Exhausts sell a reconnection sleeve for remounting the standard exhaust for about a tenner.

And several of the aftermarket exhaust makers (Black...

Re: Exhaust fabricator to make up a link pipe?

Thanks for that - that could be perfect for what I need. The tricky thing with this can is the inlet is 56.5mm internal diameter, which is quite big, but they seem to be able to do that size. I'll...
