suspension

  1. Motorcycle Talk
    Howdy! I'm having some trouble figuring out how to setup my suspension. I know the stock sv doesn't have that much adjustability, but I figured I'd get it set the best I can after buying it from someone who is drastically different height/weight. As a 6'1" 205lb rider, how should I be setting up...
  2. Suspension, Brakes & Tires
    Hi guys, So a little while ago I bought a cheap '99 SV650 with the idea to make it a track bike. It has some 'upgrades' like GSXR brakes, a Hyperpro rear spring and (possibly) some hyperpro linear springs in the front. Now, my streetbike is a 2009 Fireblade, so for that reason I'm probably...
  3. SV Modifications and General Maintenance
    It's been 3 weeks since I replaced the stock fork internals on my '07 650N with Andreani Misano cartridges. There aren't many reviews of the kit out there (both here and on other forums/YouTube), and I want to weigh in with my thoughts to help out anyone who's considering the mod. I like to...
  4. SV650 Gen2 (03-15) Tech
    Hello all, I took the forks off my Gladius (same as the 2g SVs), and all was well up to the point of trying to pump out the old fork fluid. On one fork, I can pull the rod (component #14 in the diagram) in and out fairly easily (with a small amount of resistance towards the bottom of the...

    To anyone who has the Andreani Misano Cartridges - what exactly did you need to machine to "remove the reduction bush"? The machine shop I'm talking with needs exact specifications before they'll do any work for me. Per the instructions below, some machining is required: Are they talking...
  6. SV650 Gen3 (17-...) Tech
    Hi All, TLDR: Looking for Suspension and Brakes upgrades recommendations. I have a 2019 SV650 X and I'm wanting to do some upgrades that will actually improve the quality of riding the bike. Everything I've read/heard is that SV's need improved front and rear suspension and better brakes. You...
  7. SV650 Gen2 (03-15) Tech
    Hello, I'm lost on what to look for or what I need to upgrade my suspension. I am just looking for comfortable riding with the suspension and no race modifications. I have seen everyone say "just put GSXR forks on" but I feel as it's way to much work and money then what I'm seeking. (Although...
  8. SV Modifications and General Maintenance
    I'm assuming that Ohlins would market the kit for more years but I have to ask on hope alone....Did they actually change the ancient damping rods for the gen 3's or is there any chance these would fit or maybe some light modification to get them to?
