What an improvement. Best $50 mod yet. Shifting is noticeably shorter. Feels just right now. No problems finding neutral. I would highly recommend this mod. The sv1000 should have come from the factory like this. I didn't get a long ride in because it was 45 and cold as hell here in maine but my impressions are all positive. I took like 10 min to change. Just wanted to share my experience with all of you.
