2003 sv1000s

Hey I'm kinda new here, I recently received a Suzuki 2003 sv1000s, the forks were bent and some little cosmetic issues. But when I went to order the forks they said they stopped making them so I was wondering if I could get some insight on what other forks would fit on this particular bike and if there is some forks out there for the bike that I'm not seeing it would be great help. Thank you

Used SV1000 forks are cheap on eBay.
No other forks just slide in so lots of people convert to inverted front forks, but require more parts and more work.

If you do get forks, note that they can be different.

For an 03S I would try to get 03S forks or 04S forks. 05-07 forks will work but the cartridges are sealed.

I didn't realize S vs N had different forks. What's the difference?

If you want upside down forks, 06-09 GSXR 600/750 triples/forks/axle/calipers/fender, with aftermarket clipons, will work with your stock wheel/rotors.

Different length tubes and also had a slightly different cap due to rebound adjuster.

Oneida Suzuki still has fork tubes...but they'll cost you! FORK TUBES SV1000/S 2003-06...

There are aftermarket tubes too: Motorcycle Fork Tubes by Tarozzi Would take a while to get them made...but if you can't find a decent set of used ones, it's a way out. Best of luck and Welcome to the Forum.
