Table of Model Changes - Expert Additions Welcome

I've created a table outlining the changes and differences between the varying SV650 models. I'm hoping this will help out new SV Havers and anyone curious about the SV, it seems that one of the most asked questions is "What are the differences between ____ and ____?"

I don't claim to be an expert myself, so if anyone has anything to add, feel free and I will update the table.

This is US-spec SV650 info only.

+1 Especially since wiki hasn't been edited since 2006! Good Start.

It's good to know that all 1999 - 2006 had brakes as a standard feature. It wouldn't be fun to look at some bikes that the owner didn't bother to buy that upgrade.

2003 rearset/footpeg location is different from other years and are different from N to S. 03 N are further down and forward than other years and S are further up and back than other years.

1st gens also vary between S and N. I believe the relative positioning on the '03 is as with the first gens. This is one of the ways in which one can see the '03 as a "transitional" model.

You could always incorporate this data: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_SV650#Specifications

Also, the sprocket differences between S and N. And be sure to specify that this is US only.
All I can find is that stock naked is 14/45.
And yes, US spec, SV650 only. All the 1k and Canadian owners have to fend for themselves.

Engine color :)
From my research, 99-00 is black and 2001+ is silver, correct?

I had to put something, to show that the optional ABS is different. I'll change it to something more exciting...

So is there still a difference between N and S positions on 04+ ?

This is all the kind of information I want to consolidate and put together in one handy spot. I don't want it to be very technical, just an overview of differences people can reference when SV shopping.

No, that's what I meant by "transitional". The '03 still has some first-gen-like features, while also introducing second-gen features (EFI, boxy frame, pointy fairings).

SV650N is 15/45, and SV650S is 15/44 for most years. IIRC, at one point they went to the same rear sprocket, but I don't know the year and I don't know if it was 44 or 45.

My 05 650 S model had 15/44 sprockets stock. I know the N models had 15/45 for 2005 models.

I think the formula you put in excel just changed by itself. Use F4 to keep the same formula when dragging it across.

Otherwise I think this is a pretty good idea.

The gearing you list is way off, they never went anywhere near as short as 15/54. My impression is the only stock gearing ratios have been 15/44 and 15/45.

He did a drag-to-copy in Excel and it auto-incremented that number. I'm sure he'll fix it when he sees the thread again.
