Yea I already contacted them and they refunded me half my money since the clutch lever worked fine. I am just going to have to modify the brake lever, thanks for the replies.

I ran into the same issue, but didn't catch it until after the return period, so the seller never responded to my inquiry. Luckily, the ones they sent (which were labeled as fitting a gs500) WILL fit the SV, so it's not a total loss. just have to find a reputable source for GS levers.
Deals on Amsoil if you want it. PM me for details.

With the help from my brother in law I finally have the engine in. Still many things to do, but it feels good to have it this far.

Haha! Thanks Biz! PB is indeed dickbags! And itís only at the low price of like $500 for a year....lol! Sheesh. That would be helpful to know how to post directly to the site though. Hope all is well.  :cheers:

Now that I'm home, I have to say I am loving the pics!!! It's awesome to finally have an update :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen:

Here's what I do when I want to post a pic in a thread. The pink arrow is pointing to what size of picture you wanna post. I've had the best luck with "Large Thumbnail" but it could be different for you. The green arrow is pointing to the link you click to copy and paste into a reply or thread here on the forum. Super easy once I figured it out lol! And I'm letting my Mom's new one-eyed kitten Uno make an appearance here cuz he is such a darling :-* But I made sure it wasn't a massive photo cuz this is your thread... I used "Medium Thumbnail" for this pic :icon_razz:

For anyone unaware, here is how you post  images:

Code: [Select]
[img]https://www.exampleimagehostingsite.com/exampleimage.jpg[/img]
Obviously, the URL should be changed to wherever your image is stored (in this case, Imgur)

Here is how you resize a posted image:

Code: [Select]
[img width=1000]https://www.exampleimagehostingsite.com/exampleimage.jpg[/img]
The "1000" can be changed to however many pixels wide you'd like the image to be.

Yes! I figured out how to post images off Imgur! Thanks again for the help. So, a bit of an update. I'm slowly but surely chipping away at progress on this thing. I still have a long list of small things to do, but my long list of big things to do is considerably smaller. All the wiring is sorted out and ran to its correct position. I'll take this winter to accumulate the rest of the things I need, then come spring I'll see if I can make her come alive.

A bit more of an update. I have my pegs on and figured out. I had a look at ShowBizí thread and saw how she did it. I thought that looked like a great way to solve the problem of aftermarket pegs on these bikes.
I decided on two different styles of pegs, I originally bought the small ones for all pegs, but quickly realized they seemed to small for my liking. So I ordered the bigger round style ones. They provide more room which I like. I figured Iíll rarely have a passenger so the smaller pegs will work fine for the rear. 
I also got the exhaust painted and wrapped in exhaust wrap. I know, I know, it will probably rust, but Iím a sucker for how it looks, Iíve always liked it.
I also got the gas cap finished up.
Iím still slowing accumulating things I need, but I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel with this thing. Anyways, thanks for following along with me, here are the pics.
