Default Spares or Repair K4 SV650S


This bike has definitely had a life and up until last summer was ridden every day of the year, rain or shine.

When last run, the engine was good and still pulled well. That was last summer, though, and no attempt has been made since. It is definitely in need of a tune and service, regardless. Clearance checks are very due.

Plastics in general are pretty scruffy, but not the worst in the world. Amazingly, last time I checked, the tank itself was still pristine.

Number plate snapped (was a full size one anyway)
The number plate mount is a bit crappy and was fitted in a hurry. The
accident actually happened the same week, so I never got round to
making good. Essentially it means the centre part of the tail isn't
fitted.
LED indies on the back, one has been damaged, but they're prone to
that anyway. Superglue will probably work.
Luggage rack looking a bit tired. Has been bent a bit and during the
accident caused a bolt to sheer off on the rear hanger. Could be
salvagable.
After market exhaust badly dented. It was a bit tired anyway. I have
the OEM can but no reconnection pipe..
Rear wheel FUBAR. It doesn't really qualify as a wheel. Obviously the
rear tyre is dead too, and was due to be replaced as it was.
Front wheel damaged. I think irrepairably. I think it's safer not to reuse the tyre too, but it's never gone down.
Rear sprocket bent. The set was new at the time but The impact would
make me not trust the chain.
Scratches on tail plastics.
Right foot rest damaged. I have replacements that should fit ok and can supply these assuming not much haggling on price is done.
General wear on frame, no specific accident scratches that I spotted.
Front right indie dead. I do have LEDs for the front somewhere, I'm sure.
Bikini badly scuffed one side. Possible front subframe damage as
headlight appears shifted. Haven't investigated fully.
Right mirror MIA.
Right bar end probably just new mounting bolt. Haven't checked the bar
itself in any detail.
There's a dent on the front downpipe too.
Big star, possible water inlet on front of clock. I believe this
happened in transit as I literally just spotted it today. Possibly
when it was being tied down or similar.

No MOT/Tax. Currently SORN. One owner.
Bike was delivered 11/10/2004 and registered sometime around then.
Written off Cat D Early 2007 after a minor shunt.
Approx 37k on the clock. Oil and filter last changed roughly 3k ago
before accident. Valve clearances were done pre 20k but haven't been
done since.

I haven't confirmed for sure that everything else (swingarm, forks, etc) is straight. It was the rim that took the impact.

I've estiminated that unless I can get a set of wheels for a decent price, I won't get this bike back on the road for less than 500 outlay on my part.
And, I have been thinking about moving on from an SV for some time.

I'm not quite so up to date on the market rates, but I think if I spent the money and a few weeks putting it right, this should fetch about 1200 on ebay without trying.
So, first person to wave 500 at me and come round with a trailer can have it. Other than that, offers please.

The dirt I will include at no additional cost.

I'm in Lymington, Hampshire.
If you really, really want I can get some pics, but it would mean getting help pulling out of the garage.

Short version is that with new wheels, tyres and c+s the bike changes from being knackered to just being a bit scruffy.

She's black, btw.

I think just over 37k on the clock. I took delivery October 2004.

If you break her for parts, bagsy the rad if it is still ok and will fit a naked.

I'm interested in the rear brake lever and right mirror if you do break.

I don't want to break it.
The footrests and hangers are non standard, anyway.
If I were to go to the trouble of starting to break it down, I might as well spend some time putting her back on the road.

Would be there interest in the engine if I did break it? After that I'd be more persuadable to do small sales.
