First prove its not the switch that is the problem, unplug it from the loom & short the cables with a paper clip (OW & YG) that would be my first step.

First check choke is functioning correctly and is actually not remaining on. Second, take out air filter and run m'bike in a clean, dry environment. If there is a marked improvement with no filters, replace them, if this doesn't fully solve the richness, check for air obstructions thru' to valves and/or downsize jets to 160 or less. Goodluck.

If the starter is clicking ,you have a bad battery,try jump starting it from another battery,I bet it will start ,if so replace with new. p.s follow your exhaust pipe to the engine,that is your cylinder ,the spark plug is at the top of the cylinder,under the ht cap with a thick wire coming from it.this is not the problem.

The part number for the stock lever is 57620-27A31. If you do a search on that part number at any of the online dealers that have the microfiche online you will see that exact lever is also used on some other bikes.

you have to tune your engine using the following ways.
1. tune your fuel air screw for optimal settings.(in most cases inappropriate tuning is the reason for backfires)
2. check and clean your spark plug and the wire connecting your spark plug.
3. check the voltage levels of the battery. if they are low then recharge them.

The 2006 SV650S (US model) is electronic fuel injection which means it utilizes a fuel pump and has no petcock (US term for petroltap).

The starter relay may have a loose wire or aone of the battery cables is poorly connected. To find the relay, follow the positive battery cable. Ck the negative cable connection on the frame.The small wire on the r4elay is the wire coming from the start button. There must be current there when you press the button. Good Luck, Ned

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The description "...series of clicks..." is significant. The battery is not putting out enough current to turn the starter motor. The best way to determine the battery condition is to have it load tested. However, considering eveything else, it would almost always be a failed or about to fail battery.

Incidentally, the alarm has been designed to have minimal current drain when in standby.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

There is no adjustment for your front suspension on your bike. You can change the fork oil and or adjust the sag. Other than that you have no options for your front forks...other than purchasing an aftermarket set.
The rear is only adjustable for preloads. Sorry don't have better news.

I wired mine in to front side light, use a couple of "ScotchLocks" to piggy back into the wires.

You need to support the entire weight completely off the front end. If you have frame sliders these are useful points under which to place jack stands (on wooden blocks if necssary.)
Then you must remove the wheel and forks before removing the triples.
This is not a trivial procedure - a special tool is required to properly set the bearings when re-assembling. 
I would recommend a service manual to follow the process specifically.
