SV650s tail light swap

I have an '01 SVs and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible (and/or easy) to put on the '03+ style tail light? Would I have to replace the entire tail? Has anyone done this to their curvy?

you would probably have to do a lot of body work or get a 2nd gen tail and do a lot modification to make fit on a 1st gen.

Any of you guys heard about putting Busa pistons in SV's. i guess they fit perfect and increase hp, torque and all that.

You would actually have to switch out the whole tail and undertail to have it work. It is a custom job. There is one guy on SVrider.com that did it and it just doesnt look right and it was a hard job from what he described. not only the tail and lights, but you would have to splice into wiring. I would recommend you just get a clear led tailight from clearalternatives.com for a different look.

Thanks guys, I kinda figured it would be more involved than I wanted to get but it was worth asking. If it was a simple thing to do then i'd be interested but I don't care to get into any body work at this point.

I've heard of it, but I havent done too much research on it. From the guys over at svrider, its not worth the trouble of tearing apart the motor to get about 2 hp more.
