2007 SV650S(Streetbike)






My plan is to crowd source a plan

Getting the itch for a street bike and I have bounced back and forth between a number of options.. including the SV650S... knows I will never love another bike the way I love those. I keep coming back to the Yamaha FZ-09. Just wanted to get perspective from anyone who rides one today, issues you have had if any? Mods you know of i.e. Clip-ons, adjustable rearsets, suspension upgrades etc.



Putting on my flameproof suit.. "Insert all the comments about getting a supersport if you want all of the above here"

I don't ride one, but have been riding SVs since 2001. Go for FZ-09. I would get one if I didn't have too much money spent on my SV.

Similar yes... Already planning on getting the FZ-09. Really trying to figure out how much I should put down vs. keep for mods depending on what mods are available. I did some research but didn't seem like alot of information on what people were doing was available yet.
