July 2007[edit]

Re; 2007 and ABS inclusion. I haven't seen this verified by Suzuki.

what's up! the ABS is on the suzuki site. please look. its about $800.00 USD more.209.187.72.3 21:18, 27 July 2007 (UTC)


Re: 2007 and Dual Spark Plugs. This does not seem to be mentioned for UK models in any sales documents.

The performance data listed for the K3+ models seem optimistic.

Re: Removal of external links to major SV650 forums. This is uncalled for as they are directly linked to the SV650 community for reliable information on the bike, covering UK/US and other countries.

communities usually are a good source for basic information, in fact you will see both the good and the bad face up in communities!209.187.72.3 21:18, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

This page really needs more information - and the tables on the bottom half are not all that helpful. I also replaced the "communty" links. They are a viable source of reliable information. CanyonChaser (talk) 21:48, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Merger with SV650[edit]

I can't see why it has been proposed that SV650 merges with Suzuki SV650. The former has no content, and simply redirects to the latter. Hogyn Lleol (talk) 07:15, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Incidentally, this merger has succeeded. I agree with the idea that these two items should be merged, and no one ought to chase after the aforementioned comment.--Asday85 (talk) 05:45, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Fuel Capacity[edit]

Fuel quantity expressed in liters is correct. The gallons value is not. 17L = 4.5 US gal. 16L = 4.2 US gal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.29.43.3 (talk) 22:51, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

This suggestion has been implemented. I can't speak to the veracity of the capacities, but the CONVERSIONS are correct. --Asday85 (talk) 05:48, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Claimed performance stats[edit]

This is a good example of highly improbable weights and performance numbers from the manufacturer. They obviously took out more than just the battery to come up with their purported try weights, if you've got independet sources coming up with a wet weight of 437 lbs on bikes that Suzuki imagines only weigh 363-373 lbs "dry". How big is that fuel tank? 20 gallons? Did Suzuki remove a tire? Who knows? Who cares?

The wet weight from independent sources is what we care about anyway. Dry weights are like crankshaft horsepower: nobody will ever know if they were lying. Which they know, and that's why they lie.--Dennis Bratland (talk) 15:29, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Excess non-encyclopedic detail[edit]

Per MC-MOS and Wikipedia:WikiProject Motorcycling/Conventions which are based on WP:NOTMANUAL, WP:NOTHOWTO, etc, we don't keep maintenance information like spark plug type, valve angle, coolant capacity, oil capacity, etc. The point of having any specifications at all is to identify what the bike is, not to be a maintenance and repair reference. We also don't keep paint colors, minor differences in accessories and trim, engine codes and VINs. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 15:32, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
