2003 SV w/ '03 gxr1000 is working great for me. But I'm only a 155 lb weakling.Jiff84 said:I wondered which year GSXR would be the easiest or best fitting for a 2003 SV, anyone know? I'd much rather buy a GSXR shock than a 600 Penske shock. Thanks.
The spring will be too light for a 190 lbs. rider, it's only 400# as compared to the 480# spring on the '03 Gixxer 1000. Spring can be changed to match the weight, and the Gixxer 750 shock you mentioned should be lengthened for the SV as well, it's 5mm shorter than the stock SV shock. We do all of that as part of our shock upgrade package if you're interested in that. If you just want to bolt one on in stock form, the '03 Gixxer 1000 that Todd mentioned would probably work for you.Bif said:So, for a 190lbs. rider, would a 2001-2003 GSX-R 750 shock be inappropriate? Or is there much difference from the 1000?
