+1 If you're not comfortable with reading the plugs yourself find an SV specific forum and use the search function to see what everyone else is using in their bikes. Based on that info you can get "in the ballpark" with a little less trial and error.

On an SV? It depends on what intake and exhaust mods you're doing. Desnorkle and slip on and you can get by shimming the needle, changing jets, and adjust the fuel screws.
Full exhaust, raise the tank or go to pods and you'll need a carb kit.

For street use and no pods Dynojet is the smoothest, for pods Factory Pro.

As far as reading plugs, with ethanol it's no longer a reliable method of tuning.

this because the fuel is supposed to burn cleaner and therefore not leave tell tale colors and hues?

On the Harley, I can make jet changes/ needle height and even taper/type by what I see on the plugs and how the bike feels and because of whatever I did, I knew what to expect and how it was gonna feel. (fat / lean)
In the Houston summers, I re-tune fat, its air cooled and I can see jet changes in engine temps.
If one paid attention, they can read the plugs, and "feel" the bikes performance either way good or bad if they kept notes of changes and effects , its easy to tune w/ plug reading.
Its not for the novice, and if you boo-boo in the wrong way you can decently toast yer motor in a chunky kinda way, ....but easily learned and something you will use all your life.

Tim, my comment on the ethanol is consistency of plug reading from brand to brand due to additives and the amount of ethanol present. Remember, the pump says 10% max ethanol. It could have 1% or it could have 10% depending on the blend or station. That's been my experience at least.

Cool I think I'll go with the factory pro. pods and vincent hines. Used factory pro with the gsxr1100 runs great. of course it is time to change the needle jets again. 27 miles to the gallon sux but it is cool when it after fires coming into a turn.
thanks there Patrick.
