I was pretty close, K7/K8 GSX-R 750 has 310mm rotors

I remember that it was possible to come up with a combo that would let you use the stock SV wheel, with stock SV rotors, GSX-R forks, calipers without spacers, both triple trees and retain the ignition lock.

But I can't remember what it was...

'07 GSXR 600/750 forks don't need caliper spacer and '05 GSXR 600/750 triples fits stock ignition and stem bearings. Any radial calipers will work.

05 needs the upper triple tree bored, right? I know of several places in Mexico City that could do that... But I don't think a single one of them could do it right.

Mine on a trip to Vashon Island WA


In touring mode....everything is wonderful except the seat....even with the airhawk on there it is still only a 200 mile per day bike. Much prefer my Ninja 250 or 500 for the long distance stuff.

No, the '04-05 bolts right on, I did it! I think the '06-07 needs to be bored out?

OK, I figured out why nothing I say seems to make sense.

04-05 front end "almost" bolts in, just needs caliper spacers, retains steering lock.

06-07 front end bolts in, but you lose the steering lock.

06-07 front end with 04-05 top triple clamp allows you to keep the steering lock and doesn't need spacers for the calipers, but the top triple clamp has to be bored as the 06-07 steering stem is wider.

06-07 with 04-05 triple clamps must have the lower triple clamp shimmed, as the 06-07 forks are 1mm thinner in the lower triple, but then you don't have to bore out the top triple.


When I looked into it I was dead set on the 06-07 + 04-05 top triple.

Its not too loud. I've never repacked it.

Susser: wow you did a lot of research. I picked up my 05 front forks/lower triple on craigslist. Bolted right on with the top triple I had in the garage off of my 03 1000. Calipers spaced with washers. No problems for the 30000 miles I've had it. Looking for a gsxr wheel to rid the spacers someday. Any t-clamp boring sounds like a bad idea to me.

Jimmy the Heater: 200 mile day?? This is easily done before lunch for me. Throw away that gel seat or somethin. I like to ride mine in rallys.

You must truly have an "iron" butt. Worst seat I've ever had on any motorcycle.

Purchased a 2007 SV1000S about two months ago. I was originally looking to buy a 650 but I happened upon a deal I couldn't pass up so I went with the 1000. It's not the most comfortable bike, but the Convertibars help a lot.
