No interest? Is the bike priced too high?

Pretty bike! By putting it for sale on this forum, you're advertising to a pretty small group of folks. I doubt there's more than 50 active members here that'll see this, and most of them are MC nut jobs who already have an entire stable of bikes. GLWS, tho.

Re: 2006 S50 Boulevard 1 owner 3200 miles

Very nice bike, exactly like the missus's S50. 3,200 miles is very low. It's not even broken in yet. The best color in our opinion.

Good price if you find the right person. If you have an account on this board they could probably help you better.

http://www.intruderalert.com/

The stock shocks went south at 6k miles. Progressive Suspension has a good fix for that. We also installed Race Tech springs in the forks this year. The stock springs ended up with 4" of sag - which meant that while running there was 1" of fork travel left. With the proper preload the Race Tech springs have 1" of sag and maximum travel, running 20wt Maxima fork oil.

The reason for the stiff front end is those foot pegs. That solid steel (cast steel?) mount bolts to the bottom of the engine. If you drag a peg, be concerned - that is really the foot peg mount. The extra spring in the front end gives us about an inch of extra cornering room.

We drilled the baffles in the muffler to get it running better.

We put an 'engine guard' on it to keep large objects from breaking the lower radiator connection...

The stock seat sucks. We spent money for a Russell Day Long saddle. Good investment if you keep it.

And the brakes suck. We found a snowflake mag for the rear wheel. Currently working on getting a 1982 GS1100E mag to fit the forks. Dual discs - need to weld tabs on for the calipers. Turning out to be next winter's project...

I hope that was helpful. What I have seen on the market is that these are for sale in the $3k to $4.5k range. I don't think they sell that well...

Re: 2006 S50 Boulevard 1 owner 3200 miles

I actually am listing this for a friend. I gave up riding last summer at the request of my wife. On July 27th of last year my youngest son was involved in a severe accident while riding my 08 sv650. A car turned left in front of him at an intersection. After watching him go through 11 days in the trauma unit, 3 separate surgeries(left forearm, right forearm, and right femur), wearing a back brace for six weeks, and weeks of physical rehab....she begged me to give it up. Hopefully, she will change her mind in a year or two. My son is still recovering almost a year later. He has a slight limp, some back pain from 5 compressed disks, and some minor nerve damage to his right hand. But, he is alive thanks to my helmet and his hard head.

I will be selling the wrecked SV650 soon. It only has 8000 miles on it. It still runs great but it is twisted up bad.

He isn't getting much interest. ???? Seems like a reasonable price to me.

I've got a friend trying to sell a newer Triumph cruiser and running into the same thing. The market for cruisers doesn't seem so strong right now.

It is a reasonable price. Low miles, great condition, the best color.

Cruisers haven't been selling well the past couple of years...

V65 Magna prices dropped about 50% a few years back, still not moving well...
