Alright, it is an 05 sv650n. Theres only a few mods right now, but as soon as more money comes in the more parts i'll get. The mods are: Vortex Clip-ons, Dominators, Suzuki Seat Cowl, Clear alternative tail lights, Leo Vince Carbon slip on, and some fender elminator not sure what brand it was on there when i got it. its the only thing i havent done to it.

Got any clearance issues with the fender hitting the radiator? Those forks are pushed WAY up through the triples...never seen anyone mount their clip-ons above the top triple before (at least not on an SV).

No clearance issues at all. The forks, as of right now, are completely stock. I am also pretty light coming in at 145lbs so that might add to it.

Get on that front brake hard and I bet you bottom out the suspension on the lower triple clamp.

Actually no it won't. I've tested it plenty of times. Sure it gets REALLY close but never once has it touched. We have crappy roads and crappy drivers so the suspension gets tested quite often. I figured it'd bottom out, luckily it hasn't

According to a google search(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_SV650S), and checking a couple different sources, the 2nd gen SV has 5.1" of fork travel. Not to :deadhorse:here, but I can't help but think you have less room than that. I'd be interested in seeing how much space you have between your fork lowers and the lower triple when the forks are unladen.

I'm pretty sure that the only reason you're not bottoming out is your weight....I'd bottom them out for sure. ;D
