Hey all,

Am I missing any differences between the Std. and S. SV?
I plan to race it and all I can see are the fairing,headlight
and clipons. Which I would be stripping off anyway.

Thanks,

On the previous gen SVs the naked version had a stifferfront suspension. I am not sure if that has continued with the second gen bikes, and not that it would matter if you are racing(cause you are gonna redo it anyways, right?).

You got it, thats the plan. Lightweight supserstock to start with :)
Yeah I noticed a couple of other differences which I'm not sure
are gonna be an issue or not. Due to wanting to start out in
supersport. I noticed the front master cyclider on the Std. is
umm gonna have to go. VS. the S model has the gsxr front
master cyclinder. I heard, (Not sure if it's true) that you can keep
the fairing stay with S model for use with race plastics. VS. having
to purchase it later anyway after going with the Std. Along with
the obvious the S model comes with the half fairing, thus I can
re-use the mounting hardware with aftermarket race plastics.
If you haven't noticed we are going true shoe string. Duct tape
and zip ties ;)

Forks and front suspension are first on the list to be done.
Thinking Penske for the rear, and have GMD do the front
forks.

Check out www.cyclezoo.com . They have done quite a few SV's for racing. They currently have a 285lb, 100HP to the rear wheel, moster of a SV racer. Clayton, one of the owners, is a certified Ohlins and racetech service guru too. Give them a call. I think for superstock you have to run stock forks. Clayton has a new technique (people were already doing this by switching out the whole top of the forks and using the SV legs) for making the stock forks into cartridge with full F3 internals and a dampening system as well. Check them out.



that's the 285lb SVGP (pre diet to lose the extra 30 lb's to get her down to 285lb's)

Well she is resting nicely in my stable :)

I ended up getting an S model do to availability and a great deal.

Noticed a couple of things, and wanted to bounce them off some
other more experienced suzuki people. :) Since this is my first.

The master cylinder on the S model is mounted to the riser part
pf the right clipon. After replacing the clipons with aftermarket
ones what is to become of mounting the master cylinder?

Also the fairing stay, can that be used with after market race
plastics?

Just trying to get an idea now of the total picture. We have two
and a half months and counting down till she needs to be ready

Here's a decent pic of the clipon/master cylinder in case
no one caught it in the club racing forum. Sorry for the huge
pic only I had which shows both the clipon and the master
cylinder in a clear clean shot.
