Same problem here. Used to downshifting an extra gear or two on the CBR, doing the same with the SV got me leaving chinese scrip on the pvement with the rear tire. Noticed, the downshifting timing has to be spreaded. Doing the same two quick downshift like Floyd, won't work on the SV.

yeah it will, just have to be smooth with the clutch. watch at 3:10, I go down 2 gears as fast as I can pull the clutch lever

Looks like you were kicking up some tread or gravel when you downshifted

I'll ask a friend how he rides his sv on downshifts. He used to be in the 1.50's at msrh. Andygill looks like he's doing it right

I think the trick is making the shifts as quick as possible so that the RPMs don't have a chance to drop very much while you've got the clutch in. Also, let the clutch out after each gear change, don't pull in the clutch, click down 2 gears and then let the clutch out.
Not sure if this is the best way, but it works for me doing 1:45-48s at msrh.

When I downshift, I left the clutch grab ever so slightly which helps from keep the rear from getting squirrelly. Blipping is your friend lol.
