Re: Motorcycling in Southern California

Similar system when I worked in Amsterdam.The lights were also triggered if you exceeded the speed limit so if you kept smooth I used cruise easy back to the digs depending on what shift I was on :)

Re: Back on a bike after 16 years.

Check the age of the tyres.Even if they have good tread they might be past their useful life,

Re: Norton

I agree.Better without the fairing and I would prefer a smaller Rad.Those big long ones just seem to be another copied fashion and look out-of-place.Easy to fit a smaller thicker one methinks and or...

Re: Rear brake still sticking after servicing.

Take Biblio's advice as well and lower the rear brake lever.You shouldn't really be using the rear brake in excess on a modern bike like the SVs.

I basically only use my rear brake for slow speed...

Re: Clutch lever

This one of the several reasons I waited and waited until a Good,"Curvy" came up on eBay last year when I bought my "99".I wanted Carbs and no,"black-Box" technology,just basically Old-School :smt005

Hope some one can point you to a lever you want.I personally don't have the Clutch lever switch on my bikes.Mine are shorted across and removed.

Re: Recommend me some crash bungs!!

It depends on the Company but to be safe it's best to check with them. Remember in the case of an Accident assessors are not known to be lenient ;-)

Re: Clutch basket options?

Re: '99 SV650S Carb Balancing Issue

Re: '99 SV650S Carb Balancing Issue

There is some inaccurate information around on balancing these carbs.

Both tubes on your balancer must be the same length.If you have made them of different lengths they will give a false reading....

Re: Cutting out as pulling up to junctions

Get a can of ACF50.It's the Dog's Danglies.I sometimes can snaffle a can on Aircraft facilities I've worked on but it still doesn't work out expensive if shop-bought as it lasts a long time.

Totally agree Bib.

Also is there such a thing as a,"Velocity Stack"?They are just metal tubes after all ;-)
