My first big bike, SV1000S 05 with 14,000km's.
Iv'e upgraded from a Suzuki GS500 which never misses a beat, silky smooth for the past 18 months.
Experiencing the well known rattling at idle which goes away when pulling in the clutch. I havent ridden it enough yet to figure out all the quirks but somewhere around 2000-3500 revs under acceleration the noise turns into a grinding, gravel in a box noise. Very audible over twin carbon Termi pipes.
I have bought gaskets and am going to check the flywheel/magnet for potential issues for peace of mind, and the primary drive gear nut for Torque.
If it's the basket and it needs modifying then i will do so promptly. I don't know of any Australian based clutch modifying level 40 wizards so i will have to send it overseas regardless.
Would anybody recommend a WERKS mod over the SHAREALIKE mod or vice versa? What experiences have you had?
Money isn't a big issue here, i really want to make the SV as smooth and enjoyable as possible. I'm already loving the SV and with this issue resolved I'm sure it will be a great ride for many years to come.
Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance.
