    I acquired an unmodified ’03 SV1000S in Mar ’14 with less than 5,000 miles on it, and have spent the last year sorting out engine and chassis modifications. I’ll describe the chassis mods here. I’m a larger guy, at 255 lbs, and have been riding and tuning bikes for 40+ yrs. I ride track days...
  2. Tweaking, Tuning & Tricking
    Hello, Im currently working on a full suspension upgrade on my 2007 Sv1000. As there are many great threads and information on here covering this i have noticed that the majority are pre 2007 options, which of course during the production period of the SV makes sense. As this is now 2015 i was...
  3. Tweaking, Tuning & Tricking
    Would anyone be kind enough to show me a diagram of the front and rear suspension and each adjustment. Im completely new to the way suspension works, I see that there are several adjustments like preload, damper, and other things. If anyone could, it would be awesome there was a picture of the...

    Right, so here's a question... The rear shock on my '04 SV 1000 is shot. Judging by the smudge, I would guess that the seal is gone... if that is possible. I hit a nasty, nasty bump on the freeway that actually dented the rims (which I had to have fixed), and I suspect it damanged the...

    Hey guys, So I have the opportunity to buy an almost new ohlins rear shock for my 2007 SV1000S. The guys said it was only used one track day and is in new condition. He said it comes with a 150lb and 200 lb spring. Now, I don't exactly know what 150lb and 200lb mean... Would that be rider...

  8. Tweaking, Tuning & Tricking
    On a recent ride to Mt St Helens (great ride btw, up Johnston Ridge) I noticed some unsettling chatter coming from the front at 95-100+ on some wide sweepers. Felt kinda squirrley. It was not a good feeling :shocking:and I did not push past that. The other guys did not experience a similar...
  9. Tweaking, Tuning & Tricking
    Hi I'm looking for advice (I know it's been covered many times here, but i need precise info) what suspension would fit best to my bike. I'm considering 2 options: 1. just to change rear shock (what model / year fits best)? 2. If i want to change both front and rear ? I want to keep my...
