    You can't put the clipons above the triple without raising the forks and screwing up the handling. Best bet would be riser clipons from woodcraft or svracingparts. On the first gen the N and S top triples are interchangeable (they are not on the 2003 onwards model) so you could also look at getting the N triple and putting handlebars on the bike.

    That would be OK for me because of my limitied vertical stature I need tolower the bike a bit and that would blance the bike with a lowering linkin the rear.
    1. Does doing as I suggested raise the bar suffciently like going tubular?
    2. What is the width of the clip-ons compared to a "N" tubular bar?

    Hi guys. I'm a regular over at SVRider, but I thought I'd sign up and spend some more time over here too.
    I've got a 2002 SV650 that I'm probably going to sell or part out soon. And I also have a 2003 SV650S that I'm turning into a sport touring machine with hard luggage.

    has anyone tried one of the danmoto exhausts on their SV? i'm specifically interested in the jisu model which apparently is quieter but haven't found any youtube videos comparing it to the stock pipe.

    i'm turning my SV650 into a thin-strom on a budget and like the price of the jisu ($145 delivered) to drop the weight a little and have a pipe that won't be so exposed. but i'm definitely not interested if it's anywhere near the 108 decibels of the smaller exhausts they do.

    did a write up on the project to date here. the overall aim seems to be make it as ugly as possible, but a bit more dirt worthy in the process. :lol3

    I too am a fan of the DSV. Looking forward to reading the build thread to see your suspension changes if any.

    HELP,

    I have just converted my SV1000s from Clip on to LSL Conversion. Everything was pretty easy but I am having a hard time getting the Throttle cables to snap back when the bars are turned all the way to the right, ( The Throttle is next to gas tank ) Any suggestions? I have rerouted the cables and they dont seem to be hung up, in a neutral position the throttle snaps back and when next to the windscreen it is good as well. I have about 5mm of play.


    Thanks for the help

    PS. . I used some graphite to lube cables which has helped alittle.

    When I went from clip on's to handle bars I had to adjust the throttle cable itself

    Here's a YouTube link that may help

    Just to test tension, try sliding the throttle/grip in on the bars. If it snaps back you've got to much tension and a cable re-route is needed.
    Didn't the LSL come with longer cables?

    Good luck.
