SV650 GSXR fork swap...

Anyone done this? Any particular year GSXR I should look for when doing the swap on my 2nd gen? I particularly like the black forks that seem to be only on the 750s.

Well, any help would help.

According to that link 00+ 750, 04+ 600, and 00+ 1k forks should all work.

from personal experience I can say that the 04+ are slightly more desirable because they have radial mount calipers. The calipers are identical for 04-09 600/750, but are spaced out differently for different years larger rotors.

+1

a set of forks with emulators and correct springs setup properly is all the SV needs.

i'm no pro, but i'm not too far off of some of the top SV expert's lap times. , if brandon spradling at Motorcycles Unlimited can run 1:51 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with the emulator setup, it's good enough for me.

Don't forget even with GSXR setup, you still need to spring for your weight.

ummmm no not correct. the gsxr has larger diameter forks. the sv forks would never stay in the tree.



if you bolt up a set of gsxr forks to your sv (yes they will bolt right up) it will change the geometry of the bike seeing as how the gsxr trees have a different offset.. same goes for the sv1000 forks on the sv. unless you weld up the stock trees and re machine the hole for the steering stem. which is what i did on my sv
