SV1000N conversion to clip ons.

Hi guys,
I've had a search around and i am a bit confused by what i have read, new boy to all of this.
I currently have an SV1000n and want to go the cafe look and fit clip ons. Do i just need the top yoke from an S then good to go?
Thanks so much.

Simple terms, NO. S an N have a different rake and you would need complete top and bottom triples.

"Land of the potato", love it!
Guess it will be a bit pricey to post it to Ireland.
But thanks anyway for letting me know, i assume i cannot just put some clip ons under the top yoke and work away with that?
Sounds like it will be easier to go down the GSXR fork route. Is the a certain year and model i need?

Yeah, you could do that.....it will work, aprt form the top triple looking like shite....

But, remember also, your brake and clutch lines will also be too long once you drop them below
the triple.....so you would need to replace them with S model length lines....i wouldn't suggest
trying to "hide" the extra length as kinking and abrasion will occur....

So if i bought the top and bottom yoke then it would be game on i'm guessing?
I have the standard lines on at the moment so i could just go and buy some HEL lines for the S i would imagine?

Yeah....either leave the triples you have with the clipons below the top one, or go for the matched set off an S model and definetly get the lines to suit the S.....choose the colour you want to suit and all is well....

Will something need to be done about the headlight brackets? On my 03 they seem to leave very little clearance for a clip-on to clip on, looking at that was pretty much the point where I decided to leave the bars as is

If you can swing it, my naked SV1000 has a front end from a 2005 GSX750. Way better USD fork and radial Nissin brakes with clip-ons. Only trick is a small spacer on the mount for the calipers to fit the larger diameter SV1000 rotors. I love mine.

Waaayyy cheaper to just get a set of "S" triples.


Listen, there's nothing wrong with the SV forks. In fact, they are stronger than GSXR forks. If you damage them so they need replacing, then there's a valid case for going with GSXR forks. Otherwise, you're just throwing a bunch of money away on bling, which is okay, but be honest about it.

Yeah, but his problem i think is that the brackets for the headlight mount are in the way of clip-ons....
He needs to find a work around that....i am sure there would have to be something he can do....
Maybe custom headlight brackets...or a system from a different make/model of bike ??
