So I'm finally officially a member of the SV family, not just by marriage anymore. I went out yesterday and picked up my black '05 SV1000s. I managed to put 100 miles on it today and much like the 650 was, it's painful keeping it within the break-in limits. It wants so bad to stretch it's legs. It's a bit heavier than the 650 but it looks like I'll be able to trim some pounds by replacing that god-awful exhaust with a nice 2-into-1. And have you seen the gargantuan kickstand peg thingy? (sorry about the technical jargon) That thing's gotta go before somebody gets hurt. Will the kickstand from a 650 fit the 1000? I suppose since I have both sitting in the garage I can go see for myself but it's easier to ask if anyone already knows.

If you let me paint it blue in the pictures, I'll host them ;) JK. Faelyur's link is the site I use. It's free and relatively painless.

Why you would want to go to 2-into-1 exhaust is beyond me when dual sounds SO much better. NEway, congrats- teh black is the sweetness and what's the brand of rear stand you have?
