You can get them at Daytona in Surrey (maybe Vancouver) at the parts counter upstairs. For $ 10.00

So I have my eye on an 08 SV650 for a very good price.

The catch. It has 125k on it. The dude rides 25k/30k a year.

His words;

Spoiler!


I'm very interested in the bike but I have one lurking concern.... engine life.

I believe him when he says it's been cared for.

Realistically what can I expect from an SV650 in terms of lifespan for a very well maintained bike.

Thanks in advance.

He's willing to let it go to me for $2k. He hasn't put it on market yet.

2k for an 08, reasonable price.

at 125k it is quite high for an 08. professional inspection highly recommended.

is the seller providing service history of what has been done ie valve clearances etc?

sv's are quite the workhorse. As long as the maintenance list is kept up to date, should be alright for that price. I'd check the compression, visible leaks, state of the hoses, then the wear and tear items such as brakes, tires, chain and sprockets etc.

I guess what i am trying to say is, at that mileage there should be quite a bit of maintenance required for trouble-free riding, if it hasn't been done so already.

If Modern says yes, do it. Aaron and Nate have always been super good to me. Respect.

Straight up motorcycle school, Pacific riding school, Pro ride. Ect. It would be almost stupid not to take any achool designed to save your life on a bike. If you plan to take it early next season, my girlfriend is learn ing so we can all make friends. :3

Like Quoc said, School, school, school. And a word of advice, don't buy a bike until after you attend said school. Pacific Riding school is at the top of most people's lists, worth every penny.

I have ridden with a lot of clowns , sorry riders on RS, and most went to PRS.

Always felt safe around them when riding.

I have also been on a few PRS group rides, they do teach you how to do it right.
