Hi, this is addressed to missing link with his 300,000+klm sv, its one of the highest k svs on the forum? Can you post a photo what condition is it in? Look after the paint and try not to ding all the bodywork the sv can hold up pretty well, my bikes knocking on 19 yrs old and looks good, there's a few light clear coat scratches but it's OK. How many things have you had to replace beside service consumables?..ignition coils, fuel pump..etc. yours proves looking after them they can last, how many k's do you foresee the bike going?

Feel I need to start contributing to this forum, long time stalker. Living in Australia, Wollongong notable for producing some of our best riders, Wayne Gardner and Troy Corser. Have two Sv's both naked. 650 and a 1000 both naked. Love them 16 years new with low kilometres.

This is my SV, bought it used in 2012. It's registered in 2007 but it's a k3 model. 100k km and still goes strong. I bought it stock and after all these years it turned into this. Good bike that once you deal with it's known issues it's quite reliable. I would like to get into newer bikes in the future, but I don't want to sell her for nothing. So I will keep her..

Really nice, you can tell when bikes are looked after, there's nice additions to add to the machine. I bought mine new in 2003, still have it and see no reason to sell or change, does road work, commuting, track days, can do two up but the wife not so much... missing links bike with 300ks, is the engine original of had any major work?

Main reason for me to switch is the clipons (angle) and the extra stiff seat. Also, my wife doesn't like travelling on the SV.

Nice, mine did the same, had a Crack and started to leak, got a new one from the wreckers. I was cleaning the bike and snapped the plastic res off at the handle too, it got brittle as well.
