    I just cant help myself, who wants to do an intervention.

    The VFR800 is up for grabs, its a whole lot of bike that i dont need and to be honest more power than i'd ever use on the street.

    So as in good old fashion and i'm fond of it, i got myself a 2013 GT650s for a really good price.
    Gotta do a few little things and tweak some bits, but overall will make a good bike.

    Now can anybody say any thing bad about these Suzuki SV 650 V twin copies?
    they are an awesome powerful bike. Same thing going for Hyosung's 250 V twin.

    Its not the most powerful 650cc there is, but the power it matches the bike really well. certainly no slouch but its not like the vfr800 either.

    Interesting fact, the sv motor was originally built by hyosung on suzuki's designs for suzuki. When that deal ended / fell apart, suzuki redesigned their motor and continue to build it into the vstrom 650/sv650x, hyosung themselves continued developing the original sv design.

    It also uses delphi ecu and sensors, tps can be substituted for a hayabusa tps, etc...

    The hyo would have been a much better bike with a aluminum frame rather than the steel frame, but the steel frame is solid as.

    IMO v-twin sports style bikes is one thing lacking in the market where this did well for what they are.

    Here we go, did quite a few things but pics speak for it all. Also still need to do the belly pan fairing.

    Here is basically what i have done since getting the bike :

    Change to Silver Tank instead of White (rough).
    Change Rear Fairings to Silver instead of Black (very rough).
    New Radiator.
    Gear Indicator Mod
    Ground Wire Upgrade to Body & Other Ground Points in the Loom & Coils.
    Yamaha R6 Rec Reg with Relocation Bracket + 12mm Aluminum Heatsink Plate Behind the Rec Reg. Still gets toasty tho.
    Repainted Frame and Swingarm.
    Repainted Foot Pegs Brackets Black but kept the Pegs & Levers Silver.
    Modified Stock ZX6R Muffler to Fit (i dont have a stock hyo and need a quiet one).
    Fitted Better Indicators - Led that require no flasher can, these also have quick flash then solid brake light in rear and DRL in front.
    Fitted LED E Mark Headlight in Gloss Black.
    Lowered Forks By 15mm.
    Lowered Rear By 25mm.
    Coolant Change.
    Fitted 2015 Rear Brake Caliper.
    Cleaned Up Lots of Wiring.
    Changed Front Guard to Silver.
    Cleaned the Chain.
    Checked Sprockets and Re-Torqued the Front Sprocket with some Blue Loctite.


    Also to answer your question, I'm in Victoria, Ballarat Area. Where i am we get a lot of rain/overnight frost due to the mountain nearby, so every night the grass seems to get a bit of watering from it. In peak of summer it does get dry, but this doesn't last long. We don't have town water here but to give you an idea, 4 x 25000L tanks are full to the brim, never have an issue *touchwood*.

    Wow , you have been super busy on the bike.Look's a lot neater than when you bought it.

    Where i am there's no green grass at all , just dirt and when the wind comes up it's grit everywhere. Only one dam has water in it and with in a couple of week's that will also be empty. Very sad to see , in the five year's iv'e been here iv'e never seen it like this.I don't think i'll be on the bike any time soon either.I'm not a member of the dirty wheel club , so the bike will stay in the shed covered over until it's safe to take it outside.

    I'll post a pic when i find it before it had the silver tank and tail on it, looked much worse.

    Fitted new tyres today and changed the fork oil as well. Feels much nicer in the front end now.
