Title states it all. I'm debating on moving from my 650S to a 1000S... I love the 650, is the 1k going to disappoint me?

have you looked into dropping a 1000 into your sv650 or can it not be done?

Unfortuantely from what I have read on previous post's that cannot be done, unless you got alot of dough and metal working experience.

I'll just say I was perfectly happy with my '00 650 until I rode my friends SV1000. Its MUCH better suspension, WAY more torque/power (of course), and general ease of handling (not nearly as heavy-feeling relative to the 650 as the mags made it out to be) convinced me it was time to get something better. So I got a Tuono:)

Anyway, the 1000 is a great bike, I loved it.

Actually, all you need to do is to also change the frame and swingarm (and maybe fork and triple clamp). Piece of cake.
