^ what he said. i need to get some lower fairings for it big time. was bidding on a set on ebay last night but it went for over 400 bucks. i wasn't sure if 400 was worth it??? opinions?
also took it out for a spin today...and i was smiling like a schoolgirl, probably just like everyone else here the first time they rode their first big bike.
compared to the old vtr, it no doubt shits all over it. fuel injection makes it so much smoother. of course there is more power. handling is also so much better and the bike just feels solid and stable.
i thought it'd take me a while to get used to the extra weight, size, power, and riding position of the bike...but it really feels no different.
vlam do a search on US ebay, these bikes have a massive following over there. they actually have a complete racing series for them and i've seen quite a few sites that sell both ABS & fibreglass road and track fairings.
i was looking at buying an SV thou when i upgraded, can't remember the sites but google is your friend.
try SVrider.com (i think) it's a massive forum, they might be able to point you in the right direction.
heres some pics of my old 1000s with the full fairings
miss the old girl..i hope the new ownder has looked after her[hr]
oh and of you do score the fairings off ebay make sure they come with the fitting kit... its basically a kit full of brackets and bolts to marry up the fairings to the frame, the fairings wont go on without it!
I've always love the 650s model - I was considering one when I was looking for a DRZ. Bloody good bikes!
And FWIW, the gsxr fork mod is fairly common from what I've read - and changes the whole bike!
Although, if I were you I wouldn't go for the full fairing kit but rather a bikini fairing. They're much better looking and preserve the naked muscle look of the bike. I like the fully faired look, but I just think it makes it look too much like another sports bike when the SVs are so much more... Unleash the Nekkid Fury!
