Hey all,

excited to pick up an SV1000 as my first "big bike"

Coming from a Honda GB400 TT air-cooled single cylinder 400cc so its quite a step up in performance and I'm loving it.

The SV1K is a 2006 with GSX-R front fork upgrade and R1 front brakes. Handles and runs really well.

She was a bit grotty and the paint has a few scuffs and scrapes from tank bags and luggage as the previous owner rode across Australia on it.

Gave it a bit of a birthday and machine polish, she scrubbed up quite well. Next is some fresh rubber, bit of paint on some bits and might crack out the JB Weld and whip the cover off to see if the magnets are still in place.
