I'd like to swap the tail end off my SV if at all possible. I can't weld or do any fab work but, I hear you can throw a 02 GSXR sub fram with zero modifications? Help me out guys.

I'm not 100% positive, but I don't think you can. I don't have any memory of that being possible.

i dont think there are any subframes (except race ones) that you can mount without fab

I've also seen alot of people mentioning the Ducati 696 rear subframe aswell, although I'm not sure why that one specifically, possibly measurements?

So by "superbike" and "race bike" it means he did it but not including the wiring to allow for turn signals, brake lights or anything?

Okay I read that thread over, I feel like he dosnt include much information on what year the parks are, any ideas?

Another thing, why is it so AMAZINGLY HARD to find a rear seat cowl for 1st gen SV's? Ebay has every year but 1st gen and online is bunk.

Wait are you looking for a different subframe or tail? You post asks about subframe but that quote you posted is a tail on stock subframe.

Lol, well, I didnt know the difference till you said that. I mean the back end, like from the seat down to the signals. I'd like the fairings to look a bit "newer" sleek.

The only info I've found was searching "SV650 subframe swap" or " SV650 subframe modifications" if there is a better way to describe my concept better please lmk so I can look it up lol

The subframe is the metal that the plastic and everything bolts to. Unfortunately for you and I we have a 1G and there isn't much out there other than race stuff and that requires modification.

Oh, man... well I had to try and look into it, I've seen some mean machines online. Also my SV has like 39000 miles on it, I love it and wanted to know how far I can take her, any idea on max miles?

Yea there's are some nice ones out there. Best bet is make a one off with some foam and fiberglass it over. I plan on doing that soon. I chopped my subframe but going back to stock subframe with a custom tail. Just gotta stop being lazy.

I don't think you're lazy I think you're being careful to not bite off more than you can handle and I respect that.

Oh no it's definitely laziness. I'm fully capable. It's nothing I haven't done before. My car has been taking up my time.
