Re: Naked SV or Gladis wanted

Ooh, a naked Gladys! If you find her, you'll be needing my Scorpion can and higher seat (see 'for sale'). Good luck with the search.

Re: Gladius Givi BF01 tanklock clamp

Update: I was going to retain the bag + ABS locking plate to use on my new bike but it seems that my bag - XS 307 - is not compatible with my new bike due to the shape of the tank. It's fine on the...

Due to the recent sale of my '15 Gladius, I have a gorgeous Titanium Scorpion Powercone slip on exhaust for sale, vgc. Lovely deep note and much nicer to look at than stock. Baffle in but easily...

Re: Look and weep

I see Suzuki are offering a 'scrambler' version of the SV650 in France. Looks like a token effort - half a job - and misses an opportunity to create a really exciting machine around such a great...

My ideal bike

Yep, I'll have that scrambler, please. Just fit dual purpose road biased tyres and a bash plate. It's time Suzuki caught up with the rest of the market - the new SV650 engine is, IMHO, the best mid...

Re: Two up?

Have you thought about a 650 V strom? My wife says it's the most comfortable bike she's been on - and you've still got that glorious engine.

Re: New Rider - Testing an SFV650?

There is a high seat option for the Gladius which raises the std seat by about 1 inch - Suzuki list price is 150 but expect discount from the dealer. Even with that, at 6' 4", you'll find the...

Re: Headlight from new 2016 SV650 to SFV650 - Straight swap?

I'd certainly be up for one if it is a straight-forward swap. Indicators look a bit higher on the new SV - might need them as well if the Gladius's indicators don't fit with the round light. Guess...

Re: 650 Gladius

The higher seat option - about 135 - is definitely worth considering. Has more padding and is good for a lot more miles. A bit more comfy on the knees as well. Pity Suzuki are too tight to offer it...

Re: 650 Gladius

As someone who's got one and rides it most days, I think it's a great little bike. Engine is superb and economical on fuel, gearbox slick and frame is solid and works well. Curvy look either appeals...

Re: Refuses to run on rear cylinder help

+1 If plug is OK, I would also suspect coil or a leak between coil and plugs.

Re: New SV for 2016 announced at Milan show

I'm liking the scrambler version......though it needs a decent after market pipe and maybe the ribbed seat from the 'other' concept bike (the one with the daft number on the side). Had a sit on a...

Re: exhaust for gladius

Here's a pic of mine with titanium Scorpion powercone - lovely bit of kit and easy to fit. Not cheap at about 350 but, IMHO, it looks and sounds fantastic! They do a stainless version for around...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Fitted a lovely titanium Scorpion powercone to my '15 Gladys. Tried it without the baffles - bit noisy - so keeping them in for now. Still sounds great and seems to pull a bit more between 50 - 80...

Re: 2016 SV Anyone?

If the new round headlamp fits the Gladius, I'll be putting one on mine. Don't think the new SV's pipe is much of an improvement over the Glad's. What's the after market pipe fitted to yours, Mister...
