Default Re: If you get

GSXR front end is way too expensive to do and has all kinds of detractions - lowers front, have to change entire front end etc. What you need is supersport legal, totally stock looking setup that uses GSXR cartridges. I've got the kit if you're interested. Costs a couple hundred.

Default But wait...

You might want to look at the Ninja 650

Actually if anything an SV might be a bit much for a first time riders. Get trained, ride safe, work on your skills.

As to getting bored of an SV. In all honesty it is impossible to ride an SV anywhere near it's limits safely on the street. Unless you are extremely gifted it will take a few years of riding on the street and the track before the SV is a limiting factor.

Be safe and have fun, in that order.

I bought a 4 year old SV650s for 3250, it was in mint condition.

Ya, I just turned 30, and people still say that to me. Although I do actually like that movie, it is namesake.

I recently went from a Triumph Speed Triple (One Cool, Fast bike) to a V-Strom 650. Essentially the same motor as the SV. It's not super powerful but you won't be bored - even after gaining alot of experience.



As somebody already suggested - forget about upgrading the bike. Upgrade your skills with some classes (I like Keith Code) and lots of riding. It is fun to pass young, Sporty Bike guys in the twisties on a big trailie and sporting a grey beard
