Hey everybody...

I picked up my 2005 SV650-S (blue) about a month and a half ago and have been going to town with the mods so far. I can't stand seeing another vehicle that looks identicle to mine on the road. I've got $100 coming to me from rent.com for my recent move on a pre-paid visa card and I want to put it towards my bike but I have ran out of idea's! So I'm coming here to get your guys/gals opinion on a good mod for around the $100 mark.

Here's my mod list thus far...

Holeshot High-Mount slip-on Exhaust (black)
Holeshot rear fender eliminator with flush mount blinkers
Suzuki painted rear seat cover
Suzuki lower front fairing
Progrip tank protector
Tech Spec tank grips
Bikemaster front flush mount blinkers (not installed)
Suzuki Gel Seat (will be here on the 24th)
Zero Gravity double bubble dark tint wind screen (will be here on the 24th)
Frame sliders (will be here on the 24th)

That's about it...

Any ideas on what to get next? Any "must have's" for SV's that I don't already have??

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies everyone!

Will new springs void my warranty? What brand/setup would you reccomend? Thanks again 8)

This is my gear so far...

Shoei TZ-R Helmet
Leather Alpinestars SP2 gloves
Alpinestars cloth gloves (forgot model)
Icon Anthem Riding Jeans
Alpinestars Stunt Jacket

I don't have enough for full leathers unfortunately, and they cost a TON, so I don't think that will be for a while.

+1 on the suspension. New springs and oil.
I have race tech spring. WWW.racetech.com They also have a spring rate calculator on their sight to tell you what they recommend for your particular weight. I put springs, emulators and 20w fork oil, Huge, huge difference.
