I'm running tapered dirt bike bars because they are much stronger. You can get new risers or just adapters that fit the taper bars for cheap. I have the mini-MX, which are about 2" wider than stock, full size dirt bike bars about 4-5" wider and come in many shapes, rise, pullback, etc.

Not sure I understand the need on a streetbike. They look cooler for sure but I've never bent 7/8th bars in normal riding and if I fall steel bars are $20.

They look better too and I guess I've saved $40 so far.

Sv bars

Before I went to clip-ons, I was running black rizoma bars from pjsparts. 7/8ths, but thick walled. Nice and wide without being too wide. Really nice bars and not very expensive. 40 ish bucks I believe.

Picked up a 2002 SV650 yesterday. Rode ~60 miles with my buddy (on his GS). Amazingly smooth and comfortable compared to the DR. Tons of power, even at 70mph. I really love the feeling of this engine.

I think there was someone on SVrider.com selling top triples for this swap. May want to check there...

Is there some secret society that doles out naked SVs? I can't find anything but the bikini-faring sv650s around here. I'd love a nice sv650n :(

Nice! Yellow is the fastest color. I have an 04' in yellow as well (naked)!

AirBox

Just purchased a 05 Sv-1000S and was thinking of removing snorkel and opening airbox up, has anyone here done any of these mods.

Bike has Dual Leo Vince and PC3 with factory mapping

Thanks

Do a thread search over at svrider.com. Surely it has been done.

I found some stuff and went ahead with it, amazing how resticting the factory set-up is. Rear wheel bearing is next . . . Ugh

Anyone had a chance to ride/own both ER6F (Ninja 650R) and SV650 maybe?

Would be interesting to hear about the differences, other then the obvious
SV650S clip-on stuff (especially since I'm interested in the naked one only).

(I owned the 650R for 5 years and put 20k miles on it, was not happy with suspension
and vibrations, not crazy about brakes either but they were adequate).
