Those are the best bikes to buy.

Re: SS Motor Build Pro's/Con's

Sounds like you have a solid plan. Best of luck to you next season. If your ever in our area let me know, Miller is a bunch of fun to ride.

JD has a great school, he's one of the Pro guys I really respect for what he gives back to the sport. He's really easy to talk to and is just a regular guy with a cool job.

Only thing I can see it's really missing is a purple power band.

Re: SS Motor Build Pro's/Con's

What make of keyless ignition is it, do you know? Since my bike will be parked inside all the time and I am getting a new machine for the road, I'd like to rid it of all the unnecessary electrical components and key.

Also, I want to send my forks away to be redone and fitted with better springs, what is the shipping on something that big? There is no one within reasonable distance to me that can do this stuff.

Wise it usually costs about $15 to ship forks. We ship them back and forth all the time. PM me what you want done, I may have something up my sleeve!

I got a keyless ignition from Tom, 600K2, on here. I have not installed it yet, but I have tested it and it works great. He has all the stuff to build more.

Thanks! I thought about building one, but if someone has the experience then that is a much better idea.

Re: SS Motor Build Pro's/Con's

!That Guy!,
Have you ridden an 06/07 600 yet? If not, you're in for a treat. I have ridden several 600s and 1000s and aside from the Triumph Daytona 675r, the GSX-R 600 that I have is my favorite.
Going from a SV to this should be no real issue, maybe even spark some more confidence. An older SV that I rode felt top-heavy in comparison.

I actually used to own a '07 750, as my first bike.... rode it like a squid...crashed it like a squid....but at least I had gear on . Unfortunately, I owned it before I really knew how to ride so never really got to experience its full potential. I have not ridden anything but a sv650 on the track, so I cant wait to get on the track with a TRUE sportbike.

I know that if I stay on the SV I will def learn how to be quicker without using HP as a crutch. But it would be nice to get over 120mph on the straights sometimes... The way I see it, its not like Im jumping to a 1000. Its just a 600, which is practically a SV with more top end and less torque.

But IDK. Im just itching to go faster overall and have more options for races in a bigger field....bad idea, good idea? More input the better.
None of that matters when racing. You will be racing against other SV's.

Racing against other 600's you wont be using the HP as a crutch either. To be honest, that motor barely makes more than a stock motor with a full exhaust and a good tune, or maybe on U4. That "build" is VERY mild and would be fine for what you want.

All good news! Thanks for input. The guy I'm buying from will be providing the build receipts so ill post those up whenever I get them for better eval. But yeah, sounds like its quite mild which is precisely what I wanted. Not buying the bike for the build, but the goodies and the fact it was technically just refreshed due to the "build".
