I have had my bike for a few months looking to do some repairs bike got knocked over by neighborhood kids nothing major. Other than that i my baby is prepped for riding season.
last year i kept it all stock this year i want to do some upgrades any suggestions would be nice. exhaust, shocks, And bars i feel like my bars are a bit bent i let go at 60 and the bike rides true but it feels off.
Anyone recommend any bars

Dont have a recommendation for bars. But I would highly recommend doing a front end and rear shock swap before anything else.

welcome from the spokane side! can't wait for it to finally get warm and dry up here. still snow on the ground in some spots, and it snowed for about a minute earlier this morning but didn't stick.

If you want it fairly loud go m4. I love mine and its a pretty popular choice for the sv. If you dont want it more on the quiet side I would say yoshimura. I have also heard good things about two bros and leo vince as well. I guess just look around for the different pipes and get what you like. I do know some of the two bros pipes have removable silencers.

Padraig,
The Coerce Hyper bars are great, low competition..
I dig my Yosh TRS tri oval..
Good Luck..
yeah i was thinking of going with the low bars, I ride naked no fly screen. but i feel really comfortable in the crouch. i was considering some S bars. any way thanks.

So you went with the complete exhaust. Big ups.
