I'm thinking of getting an SV 650 for use as a track bike. Man, if I was on fire other riders would get out of my way!! :)

It's a spin on Richard Pryor, from when he ran down the road on fire after free basing cocaine. ;c

I have a 49 state. Sometime the left coast models with their special
epa stuff is just too complex and malfunctions. Fix it be a fireman. Good luck and Ride Safe.:)

I have read on the SoCal SV650 Riders forum that people have been having this problem for awhile. Glad to hear it's not on my bike. I might call anyway to be sure.
