New guy sharing photos of the SV

New guy posting here! Just though I would share a photo of my SV 650. I bought it as a crashed bike a few years back and went to town on it getting it ready for the track.

998 upper and lower with custom quick releases.
GSXR750 tail
Gold emulators and re-sprung
Penske rear.
Engine: 3mm over with hot cams, JE high compression pistons, balanced crank, tunneled/shaved carbs with pods,82Hp at the rear wheel, wiring loom stripped down to 12 wires.
Yosh full system with can cut in half (due to crash at BIR), 2 gig On-board video, XT lap timer and temp, key-less ignition with fan override switch, custom undertail and subframe. 999 radial master front brake, Woodcraft rearsets, custom oil breather/catch, tank risers.

I'm sure there's more but I can't remember off the top of my head.

Nice,man! What kind of track skins are on there?

And that stubby can actually looks pretty kick ass!

The local dealership has a used SV650. Are they pretty good bikes?

The upper and lower are 999 from (my bad! I see that I typed "998" in the original post).

Tail section is Shark Skinz. The upper and lower is from Yoyodyne.

Yes, the SV is a fantastic little bike. I really enjoy the heck out of it. There are, however, several changes I would make to the stock bike should I ever own one for the street.

First and foremost, the stock suspension is garbage so, it's got to go. The stock tires are frighteningly bad.

Really, the rest is up to you. I would love to buy another one some day and run it in the super sport class.
