I dropped off my bits to be painted to Tony yesterday. I still need to buy bar ends, grips, and levers, then she'll be ready to ride! I can't wait!

I'm uploading pics now- they're taking forever, because they are huge.

So far:
GSXR 1k front end
new dual headlamp
Vapor cluster w/ custom bracket (not pictured)
Radiator is ready for installation, but is beneath bike on lift
Swing arm painted black, subframe taped off to paint black
Rear wheel painted black
New master cylinder
M4 slip on


Okay- one more pic to upload, then I can post them.

Nope - won't have anymore pics until the painted bits are back on. Then I'll post all of the FINISHED photos in a new thread.

What will be the difference? Sounds intriguing, but I need more info as to 'why'.

stock rear shock on the sv it just an spring around an stick lol. based on the picture i can see that ur putting a gixxer front on ur bike too, ur bike will handle much much better with a better rear shock. bike holds the line better and its less bouncy in corners... gixxer rear shock its a cheap but good upgrade over the stock sv shock. u can find more info here: http://www.svrider.com/tips/tips.htm

My bike IS very bouncy in corners! Sometimes it skips.

Thanks for the information! I'm definitely going to look into it now!
