I've been trying to learn as much as possible about the SVs in the past month or two (gear head). But what does the B4 B3 K3 stand for. Ex: year/number. Also whats the difference. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

I believe the K3's are the old, first generation SV's and the K4's are the 2003+ second gen SV's.
Not sure about the others though.

That is a product name, not a year classification. If you notice the pictures are not on SV bikes and the two products are different.

Exactly! ;D
I don't remember when they started the year designations like this...but I believe it was early '90's sometime.
They started using letters for the model year...then after y2k...they used K and the last digit of the model year.
