Re: Battery removal

Remove side panel, drill hole in side of battery box at bottom, it’s easy to do as it’s plastic (don’t drill into battery!!)
Use a small screwdriver in hole to lever battery upwards to grab hold of.........
How do I know this you say...........

I have a hole already!

Re: wiring diagram and indicators

When you operate the switch can you hear the relay clicking on/off?
Are they standard indicators with bulbs or led replacement type?
The indicator relay is under the seat i think?

Re: Aprilia swing arm shock choice ? ride Height

If it can physically fit in the space then it’s just a case of matching the top mount as the bottom is a combination of triangles and dog bones which are easily altered or new one made to accommodate new shock.another issue with an adjustable one is siting of any remote reservoir

Re: swing arm

Think it is as frame apparently is, the wheel spacers etc may be different as the 650 has a narrower wheel

Re: Leaking?

You have front sprocket and chain behind there so could be chain lube? Also the clutch pushrod come out just behind that little cover that’s stained so if the o ring is leaking it could be engine oil? Take both covers off and see where things look a bit wet and trace from there. You will have to cle...

Re: jack up plates

You may be able to achieve s little more jack up by rotating the plates and trying them to see effect.
I found all this out by accident years ago but make sure they clear everything in use and your side stand is still useable

Re: Alternator

In the workshop manual (free copy on here somewhere?) It shows you how to test the regulator/rectifier and the alternator/stator so follow those and post your results. I’m not sure it is a Suzuki specific part anyway, some electricals on the bike are exactly same as Suzuki and some are not! When bik...

Re: Bike check

Just ride it for a few weeks or so and see what comes up and hopefully someone on here can point you in the right direction. Nothing overly common in issues with them, pretty solid all round but depends what you want from it. I have had mine nearly 14 years and others have done monster miles on them...
