These SV's from the factory sure have some easy HP.

With a pipe and some back yard hot roding They sure wake up.

Put some aftermarket carbs on the thing and turns into a fire breathing dragon. It's amazing how the right amount of air and fuel immediately turns it into a race bike. BRAP!

They have just the right combination of control and torque.

With the little bit extra power hiding in the carbs and pipe it completes the package.

Best trackbike for people starting out!

Great racebike or trackday bike for everyone....I love those things. You can get stupid with the throttle and not highside yourself. I learned how to push the front all over the track on one of those things.....tough learning curve of ending up on your head with anything else.

Is this only with Gen1s? It seems like a lot of the SV builds are done on Gen1s. I just think they look better with the rounded frame

I'm curious as well, is it easier/cheaper to pull HP out of the carbed versions than a PCIII and a pipe on the 03+ models? Does the 07+ dual spark version make a difference?

Both the 1st and 2nd gen motors are virtually the same. The hyosungs are almost the same as well. Some of the new models have hotter cams. You can easily convert any of them to carbs. All motors swap back abs forth easily from either frame to another. I know all the numbers on 1st gen chassis set up. 2nd gen a lot of that shit changes. Ideally you want 51 or 52 % on the front wheel when it comes to weight bias. A lot changes depending in how fast you are going and how serious you want to get.

This is the part I don't share.

Simple HP.101 mods.

I'm not talking 30 magic HP.maybe 5hp and better throttle.

Greg knows damn well... And Hp out of a sv ain't magic. What's magic is making the thing as light as possible. The steel gas tank, steel subframe and all tue other little bullshit heavy items have to go. 85 hp and under 300lbs makes a bike that could win a championship. Money, time and effort wins a championship.

So in Supersport trim what other bikes can actually compete against a SV650? Or is it not even worth trying to run against one in SS with another bike?

Up here there are a few Kawasaki 650's that are plenty competetive.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

This motorcycle right here. The tires on it I now currently have 8 races and 6 full track days and they are still "ok" to ride on. I would do one more fulll weekend at a trackday on them. If were to go race I would slap some new skins on it but damn tire wear is absolutely perfect. Eating up a set of tires per weekend is silly.

Nice! That cost and fun factor alone make me want an SV again.

Any reason you don't run full race bodywork?

Because it's a pain in the ass. It's only good for a few fractions of a second. Same reason why you run race gas. All bullshit crap only needed for tenths, or cosmetics.

Talk to me.

I'm really leaning toward buying another SV for the track in 2012. I will have lots of questions :P
