SV, hands down. Tons of parts, lots of knowledge in the paddacks and a good chance that if you need something someone can likely "loan" you a part.

Might have one for sale, lmk.

If you're looking at getting an SV for track bike. Let me know. Might be selling my SV

2000 SV650 + spare parts bike (frame and engine etc...)
I have upgraded rearsets
Penske racing shock already on it

+ extras.

Don't need to sell. Just considering it.
