The Savage Companion Photo CD

The Savage Companion is a photographic essay devoted to Suzuki's LS650.  It contains over 675 high quality images that are viewable with any image software on any computer or DVD player.

This CD required over 6 months of photographic work and was compiled from over 5000 proofs.  I personally performed a teardown of my own bike (and a few pieces of my spouse's), plus many Savage riders from around the world generously contributed their own images.  All photographs are original and signed.

This CD is not a substitute for a manual, but rather it is intended to be your "Companion" when performing a maintenance task.  This collection will enhance the instruction found in the average motorcycle manual.  The color photographs will clarify those normally poor B&W images, and many include close-ups and my personal notes.

It is my sincere hope this Savage Companion will be an inspiration to grab a wrench and have fun with your LS650.  After 40 years in motorcycling, it is my personal belief that the best and safest riders are also their own mechanic...

...after all, "when a rider understands all the working parts, a rider becomes one of those working parts"...


Topics Covered in the Companion CD are:

Air and Fuel - Intake to Exhaust
Electrical - Wiring & Components
Engine - Pistons to Gears
Frame - It Holds it all Together
Owners - World Owners Gallery
Tinkering - Things To Do or Not (?)


Thank You, Savage Greg

I bought this CD several years ago.....back when you had to, er, buy it.

I'd do so again in a heartbeat!  The photos are high quality and serve as a very useful reference.  I've gone to this well many times.....

Thank you for posting the photos!  Resolution is excellent, and really didn't take very long to download (broadband).

The problem is that they saved individually on my pc, so I have to open and close each photo one at a time.  Is there a way that I can scroll through them?

I'm downloading this now. Thank you so much for the hard work you have put into this! Let me know if you ever want a hand in the future with picture editing or anything of the sort. I've been a graphic designer for 6+ years and know a thing or two about photo-editing. I would love to give back and help out. Something that might be useful is compiling all of these into a PDF for easier viewing/scroll through capabilities. I'd be happy to do this with your permission, Savage Gregg.

Anyone have a copy of this compilation still? Looks like the download link is a dud now.

Lost my local copy in a computer failure. If anyone has it still, I don't mind hosting it on my dropbox account. Just let me know.

tried to email it to you, but it's too large.
I have access to a cloud, will have to figure it out.

Great to hear you have a copy still!

I sent you a PM with a link in it. You should be able to upload a copy there.

After that, I'll create a link for the forum.


Update!
