2005 Suzuki SV1000S

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - In Your Shed -

Owner: Stefan

Owner for: one month

So far: just bought it! What’s next? : lots of up­grades

I’ve just picked up a mint, one-owner SV1000S K5 a month ago - it’s been un­der­used for the last eight years and only cov­ered 1000 miles, so I’m giv­ing it a re­an­i­ma­tion, and a proper chance at life.

I’m mod­i­fy­ing it this month ready for the Spring – it’s get­ting a full sus­pen­sion re­furb and re­place, with K-tech springs, pis­ton, flow valves go­ing in the forks and a Nitron NTR2 rear shock built for my 103kg mass! I want a ¾ length M4 2-1 ex­haust, a BMC air fil­ter, PC5 & cus­tom map to make it breathe and go prop­erly.

That’s a great thing to breathe some life into
