Well I have an extra SevenZeroSeven which is the CycleGear brand. It is an ok helmet and holds up good in a crash... I went down in one and replaced with another one. They are a little windy inside but I didn't mind... easy to breathe in there haha..

Well if you go that route make sure you do it the right way instead of the half-assed wrong way and just put a bigger tire on the stock wheel.

Get the GSXR rear wheel conversion kit from TWF. Gives you all the machined bits (spacers, sproket carrier, caliper holder) to fit a GSXR wheel on there which will take a 180. Some people don't like the wider tire though because it makes the bike turn in slower.

dude, please dont streetfighter this bike. this bike is about this paint job. if you wanted a naked sv, those are around. you just have to look a little harder or get a fixer upper.

ultimately, its your bike, bit streetfightering this seems like rubbing on the mona lisa
