Yes, my bike was an "N" when new (2003)

Only the subframe on the 2003s is different. (meaning different side panels, different seat) the rear end on the 2003 was higher, which also gave a higher seat.

The 2003 naked is well known for having the lowest peg position of all 2nd Gens. Used 2003 naked mounting plates are a hot item for modding for touring.

And ALL 2nd gen frames are the exact same. All SV peg plates are interchangeable.

So yes, the same rearsets I am running would fit your bike just fine.

Okay. Great. If you wouldn't mind asking the guy who did yours if he'd be willing to ship one to PA the next time you're there, that would be great. I'm definitely interested. Do happen to have any other closeup pics of your rear sets?

Thanks.

Here's one showing the shifter side. Note the mount plate is non-adjustable, and bolts directly to the frame. Nice and clean. Dual sealed cartridge bearings on the lever pivots as well. Noticeable improvement in shifting effort and feel (remember my stock items had just the factory bushings, and well over 100,000 miles of hard use and were kinda sloppy)




brake side


And, in the spirit of this thread, here's a picture from a wonderful ride last year through central PA. Here's to better times ahead

Thanks for the pictures. Those definitely look like they're in a much better position for touring.

Sorry for the continual questions, but you've gotten me excited with this. Did you need anything else for install, like a longer rear brake line? Or different shift linkage?

Stock brake line works, although you need to either get a pressure activated switch for the rear brake light, or rig a way to use the stock spring/switch (which I did...was easy)

It comes with a new linkage rod. All else stock items swap over.

The guy that made them is a SV Rider member, Screename Nucular.

Man, these bikes are gorgeous. Would love one in that blue colour.

How would these fare as a second bike for a beginner rider? Fairly forgiving as an all-rounder?

I have about 5000km on my 250 now, will ride it till at least 10000km (or more)... but it's fun to start thinking about the next bike.

Yes thanks. What's not to enjoy. We always look forward to our few days over there each year.

I believe a very good all rounder. Gobs of torque. Lots of accessories for them. I think 'a jack of all trades and a master of none' sums up the SV650, gen 1 or gen2, nekkid or faired. They really are a fun bike to ride.

They are great bikes, beginner or experienced. I put my GF on one, for her first bike. And, I ride it more than she does.

For sure. I've been riding 35+ years and done over 250,000 miles and ridden a variety of European and metric bikes and this has to be the funnest bike to ride so far. It does it all.
