I've just purchased a SV1000 and thought I'd introduce myself. I've rode it once from where I picked it up 200kms away. It was cold, wet, and I loved every minute. My last bike (3+ years ago) being an `05 R6, this feels completely different.
I have pulled the bike apart a little bit and found a few concerns, nothing I'm sure I won't be able to solve though.
