I just mounted a pair of Pirelli Diablo Stradas. They are listed as "HIgh Milege Sport"

You may look into replacing those front forks and rear suspension. It will come under a grand and you will appreciate it much more.

I would recomend the 650s, I bought my SV for that reason, I have a couple buddies that are Wera Expert racers on SV650's and they swear by them on the track....

I bought an '01 that was set up for racing back in April.

I've come to be very impressed with the bike. It's a fun bike to ride at the track, and I've been wishing I could have found one that is streetable. It's nimble, and pretty much has the same torque curve as my ST1300, without the drag of 40 more HP.

I'm running a basically stock front suspension, with the exception of RaceTech emulators, and am planning on trying some mods to get the front to not dive so much on heavy breaking.

I don't think I could have picked a better learning tool for a novice racer.

anybody have any info on the shock they are running out back. I just bought a 07 GSXr shock, but have not installed it yet, I was wondering if I should just dump the big $$$$ on a Penske..

wow, I'm happy with my 43 mpg average on my 2005 SV1000S (and that's a 3 mpg improvement after my last dyno/powercommander session)

I have heard the 650 didn't get any better mpg than my 1K... guess that guy needs to do some tuning or check his motor's mechanics.

06 SV650 naked here. I love it. Bridgestone BT-021s are great replacement tires. I will do the Race Tech cartridge emulators sometime over the winter. Holeshot mirror extenders are the only other mod I've done. I get around 50-52 mpg on most tanks -- mainly on backroads.

Ah, an SV thread.

My NYC-area 2001 has about 19k miles on it... I'm loving every minute of it.

i'm consistently getting 57mpg, too, on my commute. but there are many that are getting over 60mpg. i guess the fuel injection on the 2nd gen gets better mpg. check out the following thread.
