My new SV 650 bad boy. She's loaded with goodies

I've been wanting one of these since I missed out on buying Big Rich's blue SV a few years ago. I also wanted Kalvin's SV, but I didn't get the chance to get it. I think he put over 5k into this project. I couldn't be happier with the bike. I'm planning on coming out of retirement to run a few AFM rounds and mainly run it in the AHRMA series. I took her for a few good laps around the neighborhood and was was fairly surprised by the torque and adequate power. I know these have done 1:54's at TH...so they can scoot around the track pretty good in the right hands. I won't be anywhere near 1:54's...I'd be thrilled if I could break 2 minutes on it. Happy riding barfer's

Beautiful SV. I love to see those bikes upgraded and race prepped. Have fun.

Thanks guys. Yes...I'm not a big sticker guy, but at least they're aren't all over the place...swingarm, tail piece, lower fairing etc. I have one tiny AfterShocks sticker on my truck window.

That looks pretty trick. Kinda reminds me of the shape of the early Moto 2 bikes, can't remember which builder. What is the weight on something like that full wet?

That's a good looking SV that looks to have just about every mod you can do to it. Nice find!

Congrats man. Looks nice.

You do know a BARF sticker saves one second a lap right?

I'm not sure, but I'm thinking 375-390lbs.

Yes it was a really good find...I was lucky to snatch it up before anyone else. I need to get it out for a trackday shakedown. Are you racing the R6?

Thanks Budman...then you better send me 3-4 BARF stickers. Maybe a few patches for my leathers.

Gorgeous.

My kind of clean "look."

I abhor "graphics."

Congratulations and enjoy.
