Maybe both mods together have had a bigger result than I was anticipating?

Re: SV650 Geometry fix

The k4/5 gixxer forks that are on there, are the same diameter in the top clamp as the 06-09. But the newer fork is 1mm slimmer on the bottom clamp. I've heard you can mill out the hole running through the centre tree from 22mm to 25mm which will allow the newer bottom clamp to slide in and then I can put the newer forks in. This will gain me 13mm in length, plus fork cap extenders are common for this fork which will net me up to 30mm in adjustment. With a 70 profile tyre, I should be right. Right?

I see, so 06/07 and 08/09 and 600/750 are all interchangeable, just different internals?

Yes, that is what I intend. The problem is, all is not all the same. For example, raising the rear 10mm, dropping the front 10mm, decreasing wheelbase by 10mm, are all the same measurement and all in favour of increasing turning speed, but the size of the effect will vary with each individual adjustment... So I have no idea how much extra wheelbase to give it..
you can put any matched set from that age range in any of those triples, yes. I wouldn't want to mix and match left vs right fork though.

also the 06/07 vs 08/09 use a different size hole in the bottom of the stem if you use that style front stand

I believe it's 25mm to 28mm but I could be remembering wrong.

if you're taking it to a machine shop they'll want you to bring the new lower triple so they can get the fit right.

I'd start off just running those forks at stock length and spending money on a decent shock, as that's your weak point.

and as long as you don't pull the forks through the triples I don't think you need to worry about the fender hitting the radiator etc

Sweet, that's good. I see, I'll try keep left on left and right on right!

I think your right, I remembered it was a 3mm increase and there was a 25 in there. Couldn't remember if it was 22-25 or 25-28.

Thanks for the heads up.

Yeah, the rear shock is the next priority.

Also, will the new forks bolt up to the current wheels and brakes, or do I need to swap the whole front end again?

Thanks for your help dude!

Re: SV650 Geometry fix

while I imagine it'd be possible to adapt the SV front wheel, it isn't easy. you'll want a GSXR wheel, rotors, calipers, and preferably master too.

06/07 600/750 and 05-09 1000 use thin straight spokes and are all compatible (I think the 1000 rotors might be thicker or something). 08/09 600/750 use a twisted spoke and different rotor bolt pattern, but axle/spacers are identical so you can use either wheel/rotors on either front end. newer bikes use a smaller axle. the 08/09 wheel is a little lighter than the earlier one.

I've already got the whole k4/5 750 front end on there. Can I keep the current wheel and rotors if I switch to the '06 and up forks, or do I have to swap out the wheels and rotors too?

Re: SV650 Geometry fix

so you have 300mm rotors? you can use that wheel and rotors, https://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=135430 the matrix there shows that you'll need 4mm spacers with your current calipers and if you want something else, you'll have to machine the calipers
