New guy here! I have a post in the new members forum. I picked up a new-to-me '03 1000S model Friday. Mechanically it seems fine, cosmetically it can use some work. No front fairing, cheap headlight/flyscreen that I don't think will send any lighting at all. Looks like a rightside tip-over at some point.

Currently I'm simply roaming posts learning!

Welcome mate....

Maybe start a thread in the Tweaking Tuning and Tricking forum and post up your gear issue there, there are a couple of serial engine dis-memberer's on here
who will add their wisdom....

Make sure that it is not in the gear change mechanism. I see stars come loose now and again and can cause issues. But, if it clicks in and you let the clutch out and it goes nowhere, all the dogs are likely broken off. If it goes in and pops out, it can be dogs/slots with the edges knocked off.

If you are looking to make power, there is PLENTY to do! I am finishing assembly on a 1088 engine right now with huge valves, big injectors, big cams and more!

Hi all,

Longtime lurker, finally developing something that might be worth posting. Former TL1000R owner, needed something better for group-rides than the zx and found myself missing the big twin. So I picked up a project sv1000 to put back together and make my own. As projects do, this one kind of keeps expanding, but I'm pretty happy with the direction it's taking.

Keep the rubber side down!

Never got around to say hi.
Been lurking for some time since i got my SV1000 N K4 last spring. Lots of good information here!

I like the naked style a lot but the ergso is a little too relaxed for my taste, so I've swapped triple trees and clip ons from a S model, at the same time i got a S swingarm that i will fit this winter - was going to check bearings anyway.
Suspension in the front and rear have been upgraded but other than that it's just small mods.


Also this autumn i finally settled for a SV650S K3 for my GF. Since she got the licens in the spring, she's been riding my old and now sold BMW K100RS (stripped and rebuild to cafe racer).
It was cosmetically not in good shape, so it needs some TLC this winter.

The ergo's was what mainly put me off getting an N model too......
