motosliders are what you want, best ones for the SV. If you have fairings or planning to get fairings, you want the R&G sliders.
Sliders don't protect your paint and a lot of stuff, they are just meant to protect the frame or swingarm. You can still ruin a bunch of stuff with sliders. Crash bars is what he wants if he wants to protect as much bike as he can.
