    you ridden both? i prefer the curvy, it rides better imo.... i'm sure there'll be others here who have tried both (given the amount of owners we have!), if not i'll get lantana to try mine when i go visit her and she can give her opinion

    Yes, but daddy says we don't need a torque wrench
    we dont really

    (Original post by Bathwiggle)

    oh yes, should proberbly order that stuff...

    (Original post by Bathwiggle)

    So the size of your torque wrench is completely irrelevant.

    250r or sv650s? Go we can't make a short poll so I'll take votes. I personally am leaning towards the 650s because of the displacement and I am a larger framed person.
    There is no argument - 650!

    (Original post by Bathwiggle)
    Lantana - not got that far, that involves planning!
    Well depends if you want to be the odd one out or not, however seeming as I'm allowed to ride other bikes now I will be borrowing at some point

    (Original post by Texan88)
    And if the 650 was a pointy?
    Were you going to get any other kind?

    but we could use it, lessen the chance of breaking you engine


    speaking of wich, can you just check how much oil we will need (should be in the Haynes manual)

    Page 29 says "A maximum of 1300cc (2.3 pint) of oil is contained in the engine".

    But page 23 has a pretty table:

    Nope, can't be bothered to come from billericay to the ace and back, but i'll be down there, probably the cbr, if you want to meet up?

    Lantana, he'll only nick my bike (either!) anyway...

    I ride a ninja, so it's obvious what my vote is.


    The sv650. No, seriously, I vote for that.

    As opposed to thieving any bikes? That said I'd love to convince my uncle to let me take the 929 out
