I knew you would want to start trashing the SV after see some stunts.

Its not about cutting your tail to install the bar, but everything else that happens.
Like breaking the sub frame!
If you drop a bike at slow speed from a 12 o clock you get busted engine covers, radiator, broke and bent bars, levers and on and on.
It kills a bike and I would never buy a bike that even looked like it might have been stunted.

The people that do stunts are ether stupid, have very deep pockets and or steal the parts needed to keep the bike going.

No offence to the stunters but that's the way it is here.

12 oclock bars are not so you can slam on the throttle and toss the bike back, they are for slow speed stunting which also requires 905 cages wheich are an arm and a leg so you dont break you engine in half but then you have to worry about your engine mounts. and you will also need to put a rear sprocket on that is the size of a large dinner plate so that you can do low speed stunts and then you better never think of taking it on the highway casue it just wont do it.

BTW this is the kind of stuff you do when u dont have anythign else to spend money one or if you buy a used beat to shiot bike.

GO GREEN OR GO HOME

One of the guys I ride with is getting into stunting as well but do yourself a favor.... Get a second bike, salvaged or already stunted, because you will constantly be replacing parts.
