Hey i got a 2003 Suzuki SV 650S. In the summer i was doing long wheelies n put it down and ther was a bad knockin in the front cylinder. Over the winter im gonna take it apart still n see whats rong n fix it proly jus a rod or bearing or sumthing. My question is how can i prevent from destroying the bike agan from doing long wheelies? Besides not wheeling lol and dont wory im not some crazy stunter who goes around in the city or the highway endangering other people! I always stick to back roads that are deserted or empty parking lots. I know some of the honda guys jus run a quart more of oil but i heard this still causes problems with the suzuki gixers. I know the gixers have a kit that moves the oil pikup back but i havnt seen any for the SVs. I no they must exist because i no i have seen people stunt SVs. Does anyone know where I can get a kit or do I have to move it myself? Thanx any help would be much appreciated.

What is a short wheelie? (Distance estimate)

Best thing to do is unbolt the seat, lift it up and push the bike out of the way.

Then - roll an inline four of your choice underneath. Toss the seat to the side and go wheelie.

Seriously - modding the motor is more trouble than it's worth. You have to completely dis-assemble the motor (as in splitting the cases). Then - there's NO guarantee that these 'fixes' actually work.
