Hello from Mexico I decided to joined the forum after having an issue with a 2003 sv1000s I purchased recently. It has 25k miles approximately I have no record of the previous oil changes. I started using synthetic motor oil. I've been riding sports bikes since I was 14 years old and I have always ride the bikes very fast and very hard I was surprised with the torque and power coming from this v-twin engine and I was very happy with this bike. Few months after many repairs. suspension fuel pump, and many wiring issues I thought my bike was 100% ready. One day I was driving back home from work and as usual I was going fast. I stopped to put some gas and when I started the engine back up again I heard a slight click on the left engine cover. Far away from home and no tools available I decided to continue the ride. Few miles after that a's I was switching gears my engine died and my rear tire locked up which scared the hell out of me lucky I was able to control the bike and managed not to fall. I called my friend and we put it in the back of his truck and I went home. I was very sad thinking the worse of it. Locked up engine or messed up transmission few days later I started reading different posts and decided to open the bike. Sure enough broken magnets everywhere stator destroyed melted wired and stared and solenoid burned up!!! 😞 certanly not a quick or cheap fix. I've noticed some other flywheel magnets doesn't have the magnets exposed could I used any other model?? Is very hard to find parts for those bikes here in Mexico I have to order everything from US Europe or Japan. Sorry for this long post and also for writing more than you ask for I'm just trying to see if I can find some help from ppl with the same issues. Thanks!!
