Hey guys! Just got a 2003 sv1000 at an auction. Runs but needs lots of body work.
The faring is S for sure, the radiator filler will give it away....if the cap is not "locked" with a screw, or is on a rubber neck, then its an S model most probably.....Yeah it was pretty dang loud! Only got to drive it around the block. Has a leak from the gas tank and apparently the drain plug. Haven’t gotten to dig into her yet and see what all she needs. Also unsure if it’s a sv1000 or a sv1000s. Front fairing states sv1000s but it doesn’t have the side fairings.
