I know the 1000 makes ~50% more power, but I wouldn't have expected <half the tire life out of it

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

I'm going to get another 3000 to 5000 out of it.

That's amazing. I recently found the lines of where the two materials meet due to the curvy roads I played on. I've always wanted to try the SV1000, just not sure if I should.
Nice! You'll be tripping 100k on that bike eventually then. Not sure if it's been mentioned, but have you ever had to open the engine for anything meaningful?

I'm still tickled when I get 4k out of a rear. I recently went over 6k on a front and was so happy I felt like throwing confetti.

so I'm getting ~1/3 the mileage. wow. and that's with a 190/55 as well (which I'd expect somewhat better life from vs the 180/55 stock - I have a 6" rim so 190 is the right size).

I replaced the clutch pack unnecessarily early on and have checked the valves without adjustment three times. Nothing more, I do have some oil leakage, but it's not bad enough to warrant fixing in the next year or two.

a few months ago I sold my old YZ to a friend

a week or so ago he let a mechanic friend take it for a spin, and the bike died when he was riding it. mechanic then took it home to fix it.

then the bike gets posted on CL and mechanic won't reply to my friend. doesn't reply to me when I message him either (I didn't know the mechanic)

last night someone replies to a post I made asking about the aftermarket CDI on ThumperTalk back when I bought the bike and asks if he has my old bike. gives me the last 5 of the VIN, he does. He says that the flywheel magnets shifted and trashed the stator, that he has parts on the way, and asks some other questions. I get his #, give it to my friend, and answer his questions


so it looks like the buyer is gonna get fucked because he did something pretty normal (bought a racebike without all the associated paperwork). if he had any idea it was stolen I can't imagine him having gotten in touch with a previous owner. I feel kinda bad for him, but at least my friend is (hopefully) getting his bike back.

yep

oh, and to make the story even better: the friend I sold it to is a cop. he waited for the mechanic at his place a few times but he never showed up while my friend was there.

luckily he finally got around to putting the paperwork in his name, last tuesday, and filed a theft report when the mechanic wouldn't reply and he saw it posted on CL (monday this week).
