recommended engine mods SV1000s K6
After years of inline fours and shopping around for a gixxer thou to replace my now soggy 2000 750 I found an ultra low k 2006 SV1k dirt cheap,so I bought it.The only mods are carbon yoshi cans and K&N filter.After a few blats around the block I must admit I was a tad underwhelmed by the grunt so it's time to tweak.I completely realise that these things aren't aimed at I4 sports bikes and am not expecting I4 performance.However I think getting TLR+ performance out of the Sv isn't out of the question,true enough?
Here's where I intend to start tell me what you guy's reckon
-2006 gsxr 750 front end,already have
-add at least 3 teeth to rear sprocket
-cut up airbox lid
-hi flow exhaust retaining twin pipes,seems hard to find
Does anyone know the engine internal differences between the Sv/TLR/TLS?Valve sizes are down on the SV is all I know.Are Cagiva raptors much different again?My intended use for the bike is high perf street/occasional track use,no fairing mx bars motard headlight etc.Is 130 reliable hp ambitious or realistic?120 will do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,this bike has personality and I'm keen to get her honking.cheers
