Hi all!

How you all doing? I'm Mike and live in the new forest. I've got a silver naked sv1k, had her around five years now and love her to bits. It's only my second bike, I had a 600 bandit before and while that was great, the sv has completely won me over with it's looks, character and amazing sound. I dont see many around at all which is kind of cool, makes me feel a bit exclusive and slightly badass.
She's got braided lines all round, Hagon front springs and rear sus', wavy discs, k&n filter, scorpion cans and tre.
Unfortunately, I had a bit of an unscheduled off-road experience and while the bike had a very soft muddy landing, I managed to bend the forks slightly. Does anyone have a set they'd like to sell? I'll travel to collect, give you real money and most likely eat all your biscuits!

Just be aware that S and N forks are slightly different lengths for that year.

Hello to you. I am from Tamworth Staffordshire. Got 2004 sv1000s. Just love it only problem is me, I have become a fine weather rider as I don't like getting it dirty. Made a stand for it for easy maintenance and easy cleaning. Just love riding this bike more than enough power for me and easy to handle. Narrow enough to get through traffic easily, sounds great even with a little popping on changing down gears.feel very lucky to own it.

No I attach handle to other side and pull bike onto stand then I remove the handle and attach it to stand to stop bike moving backwards or forwards. Very secure to work on bike. Then to lift front wheel off I put a jack under.

That is pretty cool.....most of the bike can be stripped down completely, except pulling the swingarm out using that tool....

I see you have a friend named Jack helping you too... ha ha
