Tyler, good to hear from you! This past weekend there was a candy purple SV650 at NYST. First time out with the bike. Everything ran fine, no problems, bike is plenty strong. Refreshed suspension really worked throughout the corners. I mad a couple of minor adjustments in the rear damping as it was a little harsh.
I did need to adjust the seat padding with a buck knife. The seat seemed to always push me forward and put stress on my arms. I removed the staples from the seat cover and shaved seat foam about 3/4 inch at the rear of the seat. The modification held my butt back and took the pressure off my arms.
All is well, looking forward to our next session. Thank you.

I still ride my 04 RC 51 to work every clear day.
