Have a 2006 Sv650s and i want to put a full exhaust on it... i am a little turned off to the side exhaust and i would like to hide the exhaust as much as possible under the rear seat without sacrificing the foot pegs for the passenger or having to cut and weld stuff...anyone have a particular exhaust they know of that works well? Performance is not as important as the location and the appearance...

Also i'm still trying to decided if i want the full front lower fairing or if i just want the chin spoiler/fairing...any disadvantages or advantages to getting either one other than visual appearance?

The bike currently has some rubber handles on it that i would like to change out because i think they look a little dirt bike or 'big wheels'-ish...anyone have a handle/throttle grip they prefer or like?

FYI:
This bike will not be tracked but only used for commuting and the frequent joy ride :)

Thanks for helping a n00b ;D

I'm all for lower fairings on the S and that's why they're on my '03. I don't think there are really any advantages or disadvantages to having them other than aesthetic value.

I favor ProGrips (the ones with little chili peppers) for the time being as far as grips go. There's a lot to choose from, however. Being a pretty cheap item, I'd keep trying different ones till you get it figured out.

undertail exhaust is a task easier said than done. some have failed and others succeeded (nudist, jpl_sv, tlr709). you will have to cut & weld, you will have to fabricate your own exhaust routing. to my recollection, for the 2nd gens, they used a 03 subframe and modified the battery tray to fit an undertail exhaust. but the exhaust is still routed outside the swingarm.

as for the grips, i was in the market for some grips until i wrecked....but that's another story....

check these grips out:

i personally just switched to full fairing because i mostly drive highway or country and the wind gets annoying after so long of mandatory travel. to each their own though.

also, on the exhasut... i personally like the look of the ixil dual undertail. i have heard a sound clip and loved it. the only reason i did not go to that unit is because my headers turned out to be unscathed so i just replaced my midpipe and can for the yoshi system i had. most full systems will cost you around 6 or 700, the dual undertail ixils are 750.

The Undertail exhaust has said to be a problem with riders. When riding the exhaust comes out in the area RIGHT behind the rider, there is a suction there that brings it up back to the rider so you are constantly breathing exhaust. Alot of riders with undertail exhaust complain of headaches after 1 hr. of riding.

^^^^ thats really interesting...maybe i wont go that route...what about a high rise/race fit like m4 offers?

As for putting on the full exhaust is it just simple nuts and bolts or is it welding and fabricating type stuff?

thanks

full units are designed for each bike. my yoshi bolts up just like the stock headers and then the midpipe and can are held on with springs

Why cause yourself a bunch of trouble with a new bike? Put on a decent slip on and ride the darn thing. After a while, you'll know the type mods that make sense and won't cost a fortune.

It's about the ride....

considering the price, i cant blame him for wanting to get exhaust right the first time. there is a dramatic difference between a slipon and a full system as far as performance and sound.

perhaps ride stock for a while before commiting and continue to shop?
