Re: New 2003 SVS Owner wanting to Mod bars

I was in the same boat a few years ago. I used Honda trx350 atv handlebar risers for about $20 ( they're a bit lower than stock) and drilled them into my existing triple. Bought Bikemaster superbike bars for about $25 along with a longer Motion Pro throttle cable($40) and used SV650n front brake lines ($15 from ebay) to complete the swap. I also bought adjustable rearset risers thinking I wanted lower pegs but they just ended up putting more pressure on my groin, like i was sitting on it. I found that higher rearsets were much more comfortable and allowed me to grip the tank easier with my knees taking strain off of my shoulders.

You're wrists and hands hurt because of poor body position. While riding there shouldn't be any pressure or weight on your hands and wrists. You should squeeze the tank in between your knees and use your abs and lower back to hold your body in position allowing your hands to gently rest on the bars without any extra weight. The only pain you should feel while riding is in your abs.

You should also invest in tank grips which allow your knees to grip the bike with less effort giving you more control.

Search youtube for the video named "Twist of the Wrist 2" and watch it several times.

Re: New 2003 SVS Owner wanting to Mod bars

For really long brake lines that will give you all sorts of options, Galfer's V-Strom 650 set will do fine. A bit of excess length, but it doesn't hurt anything and makes routing and experimenting easy.
Note that Motion Pro makes a specific SV650S +4" set to replace the stockers- N cables won't work with an S throttle housing. I got these and it was laughably easy.
It says a lot that Motion Pro makes a stock item such as this to fix the S comfort problem.
An N clutch cable replaced the stocker and was needed on the fifteen-year-old S anyway.
Then I put Heli Multi Tour Sports on it. Heh.
