That's actually a misnomer. There is plenty of gearing avaible for the SV in 525. How do I know? 'Cause our endurance bike runs steel gearing in 525, and we've got quite a few different sprockets to choose from front and rear.

As I mentioned though, we've been fine with running 15/45 on it for the past couple of years.

there re a ton of guys on the sv board who swear by the 520 set up, and there are also a bunch of them for sale over there.
I think over there its one of those fad things likt the F3 rear wheel

the guys over on svrider who actually race use 525

FWIW, I have 525 on my SV, and as poser said, SVrider has alot of posts about the 520. Guess I shouldn't believe everything on the internet.

Hey John, was not doubting that. His first reply just was of no help.

I have been told 14/45 by someone by Larry who also rides an SV. Just want to get some opinions and see what options were available.

So for bigger tracks with long straights stock gearing is best but for smaller technical tracks you may want to give yourself some grunt.
Grunt is good... but I love TWS (Texas World Speedway). I also still ride the SV on the street and really don't want to take anything away from it as it is. I would like a better take off though

Pam,
14 puts a decent load on the chain because of it's smaller diameter.
It can also cause the chain to dig into the upper chain guide on the swingarm.
For what you're using the bike for 15/46 with a 525 set up would work very well.
