Finished your report, great is all I can say. Even signed in to ADV, first time in a long time to leave a comment. Forgot the text goes from white on black to black on white after signing in.

the two easy ways to tell whether an SV/DL is 650 or 1000 are exhaust and swingarm.

the 650 has a single exhaust and an extrusion for the swingarm

the 1000 has dual exhaust and a welded on end section on the swingarm

exhaust is often changed, swingarm almost never
