Sv650s and swapped forks?
I had a quick question regarding a bike. I'm looking to purchase an 03 sv650s that has 06 gsxr forks, front brake, and a front wheel swapped over.
If I plan to buy a steering dampener for the bike, would I need one that would fit an sv650s or a gsxr?
Also regarding the front wheel, would there be any issues with having a gsxr front wheel while having a sv rear wheel? (I'm guessing not but I know the tire size is slightly a bit different).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

In the event that you just want one or are racing, I suggest using the stock damper from a GSXR that mounts in the stock location on the forks. Sometimes, it may require that you make a bracket for the part that mounts to the frame neck. OR I really like the linear dampers that mount to the top triple clamp and are secured where the tank is bolted to the frame. Another popular option is to get a rotary damper like Scotts or Ohlins, in that case most require that you use a piece made for the GSXR and another bracket that is for the SV. A really good source of information is SVRider.com, a search will yield a ton of information.
All that said, a maintained bike with this setup should never need a damper- save that money or spend it on trackdays instead. If you're racing, still the part is not needed other than to follow the rules, and I used stock GSXR dampers for years to fit the requirements.
I am Tyler Durdin's bad attitude.
