Well.. Ive uppgraded the forks... put heavier springs and oil in there and WOW, it made a difference, and what a difference it made!!!

Then i put a gsxr shock on the back.. took a bit of work, and a bit of tuning , but now that its right.. HOLLY MOLLY.. my bike is a whole new bike. Its fecking awesome.

I put Glafer brake lines on the front, the feedback and braking control feels alot more at home and .. well just all round much better.

but what next? What should i give my sv next? After feelign these improvments im addicted and want to bring my baby up again to another level of performance.

what do you suggest?

it's a quicker ratio for the throttle, basically less twist for more throttle, bolt on for the 99-02's and slight modification for the 03-up, $13 at the dealer

Yup, nice shiny dogbones next... And maybe different pads for the front? Not sure what people recommend for K5s though.

ive been wonderign about brake pads actually. Do they make them much better than the stock ones without requiring high op temperatures and without weargin too quickly? any suggestions for soem top notch pads?

I always used EBC HH with mine, which aren't considered top notch from what I've read but worked well for me... I'm sure they accelerate disc wear but not to the point it caused me any concern.

I agree, probably trackday, wheels and super-sticky tires.

no, it wouldnt require a different chain. i wonder what it would do for the bike though, up acceleration?? much? not much?
