You look half way up to a balance point. Need to go twice as high. You will need more gear to do slower woolies.

so guys I was around the other day trying to see how easy my front end would come off the ground.(I'm just learning how to ride)

turns out pretty easy...I actually did quite a wheelie.

anyways the whole thing was completely unexpected. The engine hit the rev limiter and front end slammed down. Now it seems like the bike doesn't handle bumps like it used to...do you guys think I my forks up or maybe its just placebo?

Probably blew the fork seals. Check for leaking fluids. Learning to set down the front wheel is just as important as how to bring it up

I checked the forks around the seals and the rubber on them. there is no sign of any leaks anywhere. Everything is bone dry. I just rode it in to work this morning. also the rubber looks like it's in good shape...no cracks or anything.

The SV is known for having suspension...maybe now that I am getting better at riding I am just noticing little quirks like that now, since I'm not focusing so much on not crashing?

Noob Question: would the gsxr forks make it ride smoother on the highway, or is it like a car where you put suspension on to make it handle better, but you sacrifice ride comfort?

I use the bike primarily for commuting on the highway, but also like to have a little fun here and there.

Your better off upgrading your existing stuff. Take it to Motorcycles Unlimited and have them work over your suspension. Once you swap forks from one bike to another you are completely changing the geometry of the bike and they will most likely have more negative effects than positive ones. It took me along time to correctly set my ZX6r up after I did my conversions. I ended up having to extend the front forks 5mm and raise the rear up 10mm to compensate. Unless you have the time to just mess with the suspension setup I would just rebuild your current setup with better internals. But what do I really know about suspension anyway....

Obviously a lot more than me. I'm mainly looking for a smoother ride. As it is now I can feel every single imperfection in the road.

How much does it generally cost to upgrade the rear shock and rework the forks?

I have valve checks/adjustments due in about 4000 miles, I might get it all done at once...

The price really depends on what is done to the bike. Motorcycles Unlimited offers basic suspension setup which is just setting your bike to your weight. Includes rebound, compression, preload adustments and static sag. $25 i think.

Once you decide to start messing with the internals the price can be dramatically different. Progressive springs, valving and heavier weight oil are something to look into.

Most people will put 20k miles on a bike and never change the fluid in the forks. My oil on my stoppie bike looked like mud before we changed it out and that was only after a few hundred miles of hard riding.

Sounds like you just need it set up correctly for your weight.

hit up house of paint. if youre feeling a lot of imperfections, could be because of old fork fluid. or maybe none in there lol, a lot cheaper than Motorcycles Unlimited but Motorcycles Unlimited is great as well.
