Yeah.
The throttle ratio gets better.
But I guess I had to replace the whole thing.
It didn't do much for the SV.

On the other hand,
I did the same thing to my gixxer with R1 throttle (the whole set) and it made huge difference.
I don't have to pull as much as I used to.
It's quicker and so much easier on my wrist.

If you are interested, this is from SV forum.

R6 Throttle Tube
From: Matt


I recently did a few mods to my 2005 SV650S, one of which was installing an R6 throttle tube. I hadn't even really thought about upgrading it, but when I asked a friend to help put on my exhaust slip-on (he did most of the work) he said he had one that he couldn't get on his bike (SV 1000S) because the bar-ends were so tightly screwed in.

All he did was swap them (done in a matter of seconds) and suddenly I had a bike that doesn't require me to twist my whole arm around to open the throttle all the way. The difference is that it only requires a quarter turn to reach full throttle and there is more tension, so it isn't so sensitive that you end up pulling it too hard on accident.

All in all, for the low price tag its a pretty good deal. (He said it cost about $10.) Oh, and it works for the SV1000S as well, assuming you can get the bar ends off.

Dyno is up and running, VERY powerful tool for diagnostics and increasing power. I baselined my bike yesterday and it needs to be rejetted (carbs). Low end is great, high end suffering.

Much, much harder than SV stock (hurts my big time in the city).
But it feel very stable on turns.
Not bad for 40 dollars.
Though...
It took some laber fee...

Yup.
Feel free to use his service.
Very accurate Dyno.
He uses eddy-current dynomometer, not brake dyno.
