    I totally agree...If the bike you have is offered as a naked bike from the factory go the OEM route for conversion...Otherwise you have to be real careful with do it yourself naked bike conversions because it's real easy to end up with something that looks horrible...

    Nice looking SV, Ganze.

    Just in time for the annual SVRiders rally at Deal's Gap in June.

    I've seen that bike on sv-portal right? Love the riser bars.

    i just put the heli-bars on it and it's a new bike to me: between the buell pegs and the heli-bars, the new set-up is much more like a vfr now.

    Yeah, I have been over there and SVRider.com.

    I went to the bar set up a couple years ago when gas was pushing $5 gallon and I was going to work on it 4-5 days a week. Once I adapted my style, I can ride just as well as I did with clips ons.

    i love my sv1k and don't plan to sell it but the re-sale value really sucks on these things. It has to be one of the most underrated bikes out there. By the way, my bike has a zx6 shock (correctly sprung for me) racetech springs, buell pegs and heli-bars and it's an unbelievably capable and comfortable machine. Oh, and the I love the renthal kevlar grips too.

    nother pic..

    Pretty much just naked headlight vs faired S headlight set up and the subframe was slightly different, about an inch higher IIRC. Other than that, nothing that I recall.

    What Doug said. Also the SV1000N model only came to the U.S. in 03.

    In addition: foot-peg mounts are different as is the top and bottom triple clamps and the brake/clutch reservoirs. N swingarm is slightly longer than the S. And the S has clip-ons while the N has a bar with corresponding longer cables and lines.

    The '03 S model is the real odd ball, as the '03 naked has the same subframe as the later model S. So the '03 S has a unique seat P/N, while the naked and later S use the same seats. Great bikes! :D

    If anyone has done a 03-04 GSXR 1K front end conversion I have Galfer SBK brake lines as good as new that I need to get rid off. It will work with a mc that is NOT radial, meaning 05+ GSXR 1K front ends need not apply.

    Also this will only work with clip ons as it cannot match the length of a handlebar.

    Left over parts from when I had my SV. This was one bike which gave me no problems & yet I got rid of it :lol3

    The bike transformed itself into an amazing machine once I installed the following:

    -2009 GSXR 600 forks (kept the stock wheel and rotors) - About to redo the internals for my weight
    -Penske 8987 rear shock
    -Vortex rearsets
    -Woodcraft clip ons with a 2.5" rise
    -Steel braided lines

    The bike is a torque beast!

    Now I'm looking to drop some weight by going 2 into 1.

    I definitely don't miss my SV650
