I have a clean, apparently low-mileage SV1000 shock which I picked up on e-bay for about $12 plus shipping. Has anyone done this swap successfully?
I see everything from ZX-6 shocks to 'Busa shocks, but nothing about the SV1000 shock. I would imagine this is because the SV1000 is not nearly as common as the other bikes. The center-center appears to be the same, it looks like I'll have to do some battery box surgery though.Thanks for any input! (P.S my bike is a '06 naked.)

Yeah, I've done it. I got the SV1K shock for free and swapped it out that evening. I didn't have to do any mods to my battery box, but I also have an 03 so my subframe is higher. Over the stock shock it is a good improvement but like others said, the GSXR should do better.
