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?
Mostly to shave weight, I'm starting at about a 50lb disadvantage to the 650 so I need to drop wieght where I can, but I also like the look of the single race mount M4.

Who were you married to that owns a 650??? I do hope your getting the lowers and a nice big shinny stainless exhaust can!!!!! Oh so sexy!!!
I bought my wife an SV in April, I've been coming here since we decided that's what she was going to get, she's not a member here, not big on the internet forum thing.

Okay hold on???? Liutas is a chick??? When was found out??? I'm so clueless I swear.
No, I am not a chick, and I never plan to be the mistress of anything.

Is that one of the cheap Ebay stands? How is it?
Yes it is, I like it alot, very well built, but as you can see from the pics, it holds the rear quite a ways off the ground.

That's what I was thinking. Serious L, FINE RIDE. R_N, the rear stand is the thruster stand. The thread for the stand is HERE. I have the rear and it is a quality piece of work. I didn't have the $$ to drop on a pitbull b/c of the gear I bought for the woman, but this is right up there in quality.

Ah, thanks dude. I thought that's what it was but I've only seen it in red before. The black and blue on the stand looks good.

That is a hot looking bike. i dont think the 06 colors have been announced for the 650 yet but i'm curious to see if black made it in the lineup. Black looks really good, and I think it was only offered for 1 year for the 1st gen. 01? 02?

i know a guy with a black RR and he says he would probably never buy a black bike again. He says its too hard to keep clean. I think he's just way too anal about it.

WOW :eek: that looks tasty!  :eek:

My friend just had his 99 650 blacked out, looks pretty sick, but not as sick as yours!

Congrats and welcome to the family ;D

I hope they do the both the black and that bright red on the 06 650.  The Red 1K with the blacke frame is beautiful.

oops that was probably my fault, I heard something about spouse's bike and assumed you were speaking of a husband who already had an SV :-[

So about the mistress thing......maybe in the right pair of leather pants, hmm. j/k

That looks sweet.  Now all you need is a Sharkskinz like mine: http://bikepics.com/members/sv650rr/03sv650s/
That's the fairing I plan on getting. Thanks for the pics, I was looking for some good pics of those fairings mounted on a bike. One question, on the right side aft where it mounts just below the rear break lever, did you have to drill into the frame?

She looks hot the way she is. Some turnsignals and fender eliminator but I cant see the full fairing. Loves'em with just the chin spoiler on it.
