Stem bearings replaced. Front suspension rebuilt (Sonic Springs, Mikes XS Emulators, TTR400 Fork Caps with Adj Preload and all balls seals).  A big thanks to DaveDoug for his knowledge and guidance through the process.


New Tires are mounted (Heidenau K60 Scouts)  .   Its back on 2 wheels and it fired right up last night.  Tonight I need to pull the carbs, adjust jetting and take care of vacuum leaks.


















And to add to the pressure of trying to get this done in less than 3 weeks...I sold this and don't currently have a ridable bike...whoops

I, too have an SV650 as well as numerous project vintage bikes. I know the struggle of deciding on keep or sell the SV, and everytime I click the start button and hit the road I remember why I still have it.

Having a fuel injected bike was holding you back from vintage greatness.

Until you sell it back to me.
