yeah long wheelies blow up SVs so they say. But what about other stuff ie drifting,stoppies,burnouts and other things that are " hard on the bike" I know Im openin a can of worms with this one.. ok have it
the story is that if your oil is below full then you'll starve the front cyl or a bearing and shortly after the motor is a big paperweight.
Some say yes, some say no. The general consensus is that there are definitely better bikes for stunting.
well, i don't think its going to matter what short comings it has. you don't have enough for a I4 stunt bike, so just go for it. i think a stabilizer would be helpfull though. although if you can scrape together $1500, you can pick up a stunt bike from craigslist.
the stuff you listed can be done and yes it will tear up your bike, but it will tear up any bike. If you check youtube you can find video's of people stunting SV's. The real issuse will be if you can restrain yourself from wheelies, after all a lot of stunt's revolve around them. 12 o'clocks, circules, coasters, stand-ups, tank. I'd guess 80% of stunting involves wheelies.
and dont get me wrong .. i love my SV fun great bike handles very well.. but what is it good for... gets beat by alot in sr8 lines and i kill ppl in corners but when the sr8 comes i lose to a newb cause hes got a ZX-6..cant build it more then 90hp with out it snappin..can stunt very well but blows up in wheelies..why is there not a dry sump 100hp motor that can be made for SV...but i do love me SV thats why i havent sold it and never well
Can the standard 1st gen SV do a stoppie? Ive tried my hardest for a few months now and it just locks the front and kinda tucks on me. For the life of me I can't get the ass up for more than about 5 feet.
