Been browsing through the build pages for a few days, and decided to sign up. I'm planning on ditching the fairing and doing some paint work on my '02 SV, pretty mild compared to some of the builds I've seen on here.
Welcome. Hey, I used to be an SV rider from Oregon too! Had a copper 03. Now I have a Z1000 and got stationed in North Dakota. Love the Z, hate the state. Enjoy all that beautiful riding at your doorstep. You'll miss it if you move!
Well I've got a bit more done, I just went with a $20 headlight to stay legal until I can find something more permanent. I've got a Vapor on the way to take care of the speedo /tach. Also mounted up a belly pan that I had laying around for like 5 years.
WElcome amigo. Fellow Oregonian here. I have a Vapor as well. Love the gauge. Get a decent headlight as soon asyou can though amigo. That one is crap not only in looks but in light output as well. I'm sure you'll be hearing that here quite a bit. What part of our beautiful state are you in? Love the SV's.
Little bit of an update, got a decent headlight mounted up, threw on some white vinyl tape (will finish that next time in the garage,) next up will be figuring out a way to permenantly mount my brake resevior, and then spring and emu install.
Finally stumbled across ur intro thread, welcome bro!
Glad ya got a good light, we got too many critters running around here at night to be runnin crappy lights, when you go to mount ur brake res. I think I heard it doesn't have to be above the lever once it's primed and bled it'll draw the fluid even if it mounted lower than the master cyl.
And ya gotta do somethin about that exhaust can, it's huuuuuge
