Re: Building From the Ground Up

Fascinating watching its evolution. Will it ever be finished to your satisfaction or will it be a continuing work in progress?

What does it ride like?

Re: K1 carb refit after 4 years in storage

One other thing, I was on an old Triumph T150 website yesterday and read that cheap spray on furniture polish will soften rubber seals (like inlet manifold rubbers) that may help them to seal better.

Re: K1 carb refit after 4 years in storage

Welcome back.

Repair kits usually consist of jets, needles, float valves and diaphragms if they are available. Wemoto offer some carb parts: http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/suzuki/sv_650_k1/01/...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

115 mile ride - Cleethorpes to Mablethorpe to Skegness to Louth to Market Rasen and home. Too early for caravans on the coast road - I'm truly blessed!

Re: SV major service

With regard to the AL7, there is some confusion (dispute?) about plugs. The recommended plug is an NGK MR8E-9, the AL7 SV is not listed on the NGK website (nor is the plug). Some owners manuals...

Re: SV major service

I didn't think it was too bad, the plugs alone are 48. The bike is still under warranty which is one reason I let the dealer service it (I do have the Suzuki workshop manual and the tools). I do...

SV major service

Just scheduled my AL7 for its major (15000 mile) service at B&B (Lincoln) for early May - 299 + vat.

Re: Once a day SV650

I know the mantra is: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", but I would want to take the tank off and take a look if it was steaming from under there and, if necessary, spray any electrical connections...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Good grief!

I thought all pumps had a quick disconnect feature to prevent damage to nozzles. They do in the US - in New Jersey and some parts of Oregon you are not allowed to pump your own gas...

Re: SV650AL7 chain and sprockets kit

I had not heard of QX-ring chains before, the Q stands for quadra apparently - I am no wiser.

Re: SV650AL7 chain and sprockets kit

The front sprocket (27511-12C00) appears to be unique to AL7 but is available at dealers (eg: Fowlers)
The rear sprocket (64511-44H20) is shared with the Gladius also available at dealers (Fowlers)...

I like two strokes!

Two strokes are loud, frequently rattly, often unreliable and are an environmental nightmare, but I like them.
