Ended up bringing it home. He had a brand new Sportmax front tire and rear lift he threw in on the deal. I'm happy but I was mistaken and it has a stock rear shock/spring. I'm wanting to replace it asap.

Yes, yes you do.

Why did I wait 24k miles to change mine?

Definitely a worthwhile upgrade.

I have questions to the SV650 collective:

The first gen SV650 rear brake rotor diameter is 240mm and second gen rear rotor is 220mm, right? Are they interchangeable? My main concern is the bolt pattern. Are they the same?

The rear wheel assembly has 3 bearings, one in the sprocket carrier and two in the wheel. The first gen bike should have a 17mmm axle and bearings, except in the sprocket carrier, which is bigger and there's a space/reducer.
The second gen bike has a 20mm axle but I don't know the size of the sprocket carrier bearing. I need to know if the OD of that bearing is the same like the first gen's bike? Also, what's the ID for the same bearing? 20mm like the other two?

Thanks.

Here's another question...

My '03 nekked has a '04 GSXR 750 front end with the stock rear. It seems harder to turn in than it should. Would going with a shorter rear shock setup help? Do I need a shock with adjustable ride height or could I go with dog bones?

If it is hard to turn a longer shock would be a better bet. Or raise the forks in the triple clamps if ground clearance is not an issue.

Check your tire pressures first. I usually run 32psi front and rear if I'm riding sporty. 38+ if I'm just commuting.

I need a longer front brake line in order to raise my bars how I want them.

How should I go about acheiving this?

I did Race Tech springs up front during the snowy season last year and am pleased with the results, but I don't understand what a rear-shock upgrade will do for my ride. What are the bad behaviors that result from a crappy rear shock? Thanks for enlightening me, I am suspension ignorant.

I thought the GSXR shocks were shorter and that's what caused the issue?

Lets make sure we're on the same page.

The stock rear. Is it a stock SV shock or a stock GSXR shock?

In my experience (whatever that is worth) when I put a 2000ish GSXR600 shock on my 2000 SV650 it jacked the rear up quite a lot. I'm fairly certain a GSXR shock (at least early 2000 models) is longer than an SV shock.

Having typed all that, when I put a Penske on my 2000 SV race bike (my second SV) it was light years better than the GSXR shock. If you end up replacing your shock I would suggest an aftermarket.
