I'm moving from San Antonio out to my property in West Texas. I'd like to see if I can sell this bike before then, if not I will keep it.
It's a well running, all around decent naked SV-650 that's basically all stock other than the (reasonably sized) windscreen. It does have a salvage title, but behaves fine both with the motor and handling. No unusual headshakes, misalignments, etc. It's been down a couple times but only seeming to dent the tank or leave scrapes and not tweaking the frame, at least in any way that I can tell.
Recently, the following has been done:
Replaced/rebuilt the vacuum petcock.
Regulator/rectifier replaced with a quality Shindingen unit.
Rear tire had a leak, which was plugged and patched.
The tires are quite fresh Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs in the correct sizes. The rear tire has Ride-On tire sealant to help prevent future flats (at least that are more in the center strip, where they usually occur). I might add it to the front as well, which also acts an exceptional dynamic balancer.
These bikes are very fast and torquey. They sound incredible when opened up. Motor is smooth and well-regarded. Good street machine all around. This is the last year carbureted and with the tube-type aluminimum trellis frame.
Monday the 18th will be the last day bike will be available to be sold. Shortly after that, it will be loaded onto the back of my truck and I'll likely be enjoying it on Highway 118, about 400 miles away.
$2,200 in cash, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, silver, gold, or possible trades.
