    Track/Race SV650, street OK too


    My Dad is lookin to come back to the track for more trackdays.

    Looking for a SV650. The closer to being ready for the track, the better, but street examples will be considered as well.

    Can be ugly. Needs to be mechanically sound.

    2004 SV650, cluster says 16k miles.
    I binned it in the bowl Round 6 2017. No it hasn't been measured. It's probably tweaked, but what fun is a bike that isn't?
    Bunch of goodies,
    -Pc3 and quickshifter
    -Braided lines
    -Sharkskinz SV body work
    -Ohlins Rear shock with 525 lbs/in spring
    - Race Tech emulators and 0.9 Kg springs
    -Vortex rear sets, set up for GP shift)
    -Leo Vince titanium full system.(Muffler is a little dented and has been shortened)
    -Lightened flywheel/sprag assembly and lightened starter clutch(less stress on the crank and is spins up faster)
    -520 chain with aluminum Vortex sprockets, stock gearing (perfect for the New England tracks)
    -vortex clip-ons
    -Yoyodyne race slipper clutch.
    -GSXR steering dampener
    -chinese gear indicator
    -motion pro kit
    -Zero Gravity windscreen
    -Vortex frame sliders
    -Nissan radial front master cylinder
    -Fully wired for racing
    -Comes with rear stand - no kickstand because its a race bike.
    I have a Texas title for the bike

    $3000?

    My Dad has done two trackdays ever, and is in his 60's. That being said, cheaper, the better.

    No this one is white with triumph forks. Understand your cost considerations. It was just close and looks nice. You might try the WERA forum there are more then a few on there at any one time,might need to travel to fetch it. Found on on Ebay that's close( street) sorry cant post links. Good luck

    Not track ready but there's a fairly clean looking red 2006 w/ 28k and a few aftermarket bits on FB Marketplace for $1600 OBO in Woolwich, ME. Think it said it needs throttle body cleaned or something small and it'll need some clip ons. Been on there for months so it might be had for very cheap, just FYI.

    Have briefly considered picking it up, tuning it up and making it track-able and selling it in Spring.

    The white one belonged to Marwan.. I think that's the kids name. Beautiful bike. Triumph front end on it.. first time I'd seen that done.
    I think Doug and I helped put the rear-sets on that bike. So. You know. I'd check those.

    Seen it, avoiding. It should NOT have throttle body issues at 28k. I have the same year/color/mileage on my SV. That thing is beat.

    He's inquired about a 2004 for similar money in nice shape. Cheapest isn't priority, best bike for a reasonable amount is.

    $2g for the bike, spare plastics, spare rear wheel, and maybe a set of stands if you ask nicely.

    Way overkill for my Dad's needs/wants. He's looking to get into a cheap bike.

    I agree it's a decent price for a well setup competitive racebike, but it's not what my Dad is in the market for. I appreciate the effort regardless.

    Cheap ugly SV. That's what he wants. Mine isn't ugly, and I'm not about to pass on the best all around bike I've ever owned to someone who will use it twice a year.

    He's done trackdays on an EX500. He doesn't want one. I can't blame him. SV is just all sorts of better.

    He doesn't want an F4i, or any other inline 4.
