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 is VERY loud without the dB killer, as the inlet is 57mm ID and the core is about 70mm ID, so I keep the baffle in. The bike goes very well with it.

After 19 years...finally let the SV go.
Lots of good memories but it was time.

So I've fully turned to the darkside.
About as far from the SV as you can get.
Got this clean 2010 Honda ST1300 with 18k on the clock.
Just fully serviced by a Honda dealer with all fluids changed and sporting a new set of Avon Spirit ST's.
Loving it so far!

Very tidy bike Bill. Certainly is a change.

Shame to see that lovely old SV go, it was almost a family heirloom!

Ooooooh Bill, you've gone to the dark side?! we've all moved on at some point, but I think I'll be back on an sv in the future. Great to see you'll be out using it though!
