Ok guys, these threads as of late are pretty much mondo boring. If I see another photo of a painted bike...


Anyways, I am looking for some info on sv1000 race parts. Anyone on here race one of these in a competitive manner? I'm not looking for shock info or exhaust systems here. I need to know engine details. Clutch details. What did you do to the motor - typical Supersport type build?

Poppa bear here may be running a twin for Suzuki cash. Who knows. Probably fall through like the last year did, but hey, a guy can dream, right?

I am looking for what was done motor-wise. Also, any changes to the clutch?

Thanks....

Awe, gee wizzz dad . . . and I was going to finally post a photo of my bike along with a race report. Oh well . . . .


I think PuppyFarts is the only one who actually raced an SV1000 last year . . . it just depends on what you mean by "in a competitive manner."

Re: These threads are lame - actual race question/info neede

I didn't crack the cases on mine, just the usual external mods (TRE, PCIII-usb, etc.) - like these girls were insinuating, I could barely use the power it had.


Spears makes a cable clutch conversion, which is nice as there have been issues with the slave cyl leaking. I believe they also have custom cam grinds available. There were a couple of other guys on the SV1000 Portal racing them - Joe Ball was racing one competiviely in WERA, and I believe he's from Ohio.

I've got a friend making super light subframes and fairing stays for the SVs. He makes them to the '03 S model spec, which is a little higher than the '04+ models. The subframes are 7+ lbs. lighter than stock.

The biggest complaint I had was the forks. The tubes are soft as butter.

No offense to Joe Ball, but I was looking for someone like Mark Junge or someone that speed. I haven't talked to Mark for over a year so, I figured I would see who one here has.

When I talk serious, I am talking like what you do to a Supersport/Superstock bike. EMS, Suspension, shit like that is all store bought stuff. i am looking for slipper clutch info, what specs are working for an SV1000 motor-wise, etc...

Can you have him PM me? We picked this thing up yesterday and we are wanting to "play" around and get some Suzuki cash and possibly Cup points....

Well, I can tell you that the O.E. slipper clutch is a nice feature. I got so used to having it that when I first got on my 600, I swore I was about to lose the trans on a down shift!


The SV1000 fields are kind of small. Trey Batey seems to own WERA's SV1K classes and I don't hear too many people racing them in CCS. If you think the boys from Vesrah will offer you information, they are probably your best bet. I'm pretty sure they are still racing their '03 bikes though.

Negatory Ghost rider - they have the new stuff. Maybe an 04 from last year, but they always have new stuff. Actually, they have had an 05 1000 GSXR before anyone outside of factory and sub factory teams...

It's Tray, by the way, not Trey...

Re: These threads are lame - actual race question/info neede

at the 03 GNF, when I ran out of friggin gas after a red flag and quick restart without getting a splash of gas - I was stopped on the outside of the back straight just before the chute.

this was Heavywewight Twins and my God, Tray Batey came on that back straight on that mongo twin SO FAST and even though I was 30 feet from him going by ---the air he pushed by would almost knock me over.... damn that man can RIDE.....

We ran the National Endurance Series for a few years and let me say, you never realize just how fast he and Mark are until they go past. I remember the year the new GSXR1000 came out. Mark blew past me on the straight and I tucked into his draft on the back straight at Road Atlanta. I picked up at least ten miles and hour and I blew my brake markers by 100 feet. Amazing machines, but even more amazing when they have a great rider on them.

Tray used to pass us and wave. Nice touch. Man can ride and is so smooth....

You can also talk to JHS Racing in the UK. They've been racing the SV1K for the last couple of years and posted on the SV portal that they just finished their '05 bike and it's 142hp at the rear wheel. Google search the name.
