From the Archives: 2003 Suzuki SV650S with LeoVince Exhaust

I found this video while digging around in my picture archives and thought I'd post it for the Suzuki SV650S fans out there. This was shot right after I installed the LeoVince exhaust on my SV. It sounded even better after it had some miles on it.

Thursday, September 6, 2007


The 2003 Suzuki SV650S was sold on September 6. Though sad to have sold the bike I am happy to see it go to a good home and an owner that will take care of it and appreciate it the way that I have.

That said, if you are in the market for Vintage Motocross CZ dirt bikes, stock and aftermarket parts and accessories and other high performance equipment for AHRMA racers and their Vintage dirt bikes you need to check out CR High Performance Products.

Questions of Interest

I’ve received several questions regarding the 2003 Suzuki SV650S over the past couple of days and am going to post them here so others will have access to the same information.

Q1) Is the silver an original Suzuki SV color?

A1) Yes, the bike is the original factory color.

Q2) Has the bike had the SV fuel tank recall completed?

A2) Yes, the recall was completed last year when the fuel tank was replaced by the local dealer.

Q3) What is the status of the title?

A3) The title is clear, i.e., in my name and with no lien.

Q4) Is it currently registered? If yes, until when?

A4) The registration is current through 10/22 of this year.

Q5) Does it need any immediate maintenance or repair?

A5) All maintenance is current and there are no repairs outstanding.

Q6) Which items are not or may not "be legal"

A6) I believe everything is legal, there are settings on the turn signal relay that may not be but it has a "normal" setting.

Q7) Are you available to show it in the evenings during the week or anytime on the weekends?

A7) I am happy to arrange a time to show the Suzuki SV650S that is convenient for both parties, please contact me to schedule an appointment.

Q8) What forms of payment will you accept?

A8) I will accept cash or cashiers checks from a bank, I will not accept personal checks or PayPal.

Q9) Why are you selling the 2003 Suzuki SV650S?

A9) I am contemplating a Harley Davidson Nightster. I know it is a bit cliche (okay a lot cliche) but I've reached the point in my riding where comfortable cruising is more important than a great handling bike.

Q10) I'm on the short side 5' 6" or less, will the Suzuki SV be comfortable for me?

A10) Yes, I'm 5' 6" and I am able to place both feet flat with the lowered seat. The bike also has adjustable links that are currently in the stock position but can be used to drop the SV another 2 inches. I have the stock seat for taller riders.

Q11) How many miles are on this bike?

A11) About 3,085 (may go up if I get a ride or two in before selling).

I will update this list with additional questions as they are received. Thank you all for your interest.

Right View of the SV650S

I took these photos this morning as I was preparing to go for a ride out East on the 76; unfortunately, the ride was cancelled due to thunder and lightening and the threat of rain in the mountains. Here you can see the very nice LeoVince exhaust, but to really appreciate this piece you have to hear it - it's not too loud but it is very distinct on the 2003 Suzuki SV650S. You can also see (or more correctly not see) the Suzuki rear fender eliminator kit which cleans up the look for the tail of the bike.

Front View of the SV650S

In this view you can see the ConvertiBARS adjusted for the more upright, comfortable, all-day riding position. This upgrade to the 2003 Suzuki SV650S really improved the rideability and having the easily adjustable ConvertiBARS system means you can ride to the track, change the position of the bars and go race. You can also see the Zero Gravity double bubble windscreen and the clear lens LED turn signals.

Left Side View of the SV650S

In this view you can see the Suzuki seat tail cover and chin spoiler. You may also be able to see the adjustable Pazzo clutch and brake levers, very nice for adjusting the 2003 Suzuki SV650S settings for any size rider. The Pazzo levers are machined of 6061-T6 billet aluminum and are black with gold adjusters.
