I recently traded my Bandit 1200 streetfighter for a 03 SV 650 S.
Miss that feeling of a naked hooligan bike though. So I am going to fighter the SV too. Not that crazy this time.

here the old bandit:



The SV when I got it:


And here the current state:



I am getting the cowl cover the headlight will get some paint and a smaller fender. this one just doesn't work with that mask.

I am sticking with the suspension since its been done by traxxion dynamics. I am going to get 4 piston calipers and adapters, that headlight in silver and a smaller fender. thats it for now!

New paint eventually!

I agree. Digging that headlight for the application. I don't see many of those installed. They ask a premium for the design so most folks don't buy them. Glad you did. Compliments the tail. Not sure if you're keeping that tail but it goes well.

how would you compare goin from the bandit to the sv?
Love the V2 motor characteristic. I feel like I am faster on it. especially through corners.
I miss the punch sometimes.

Im loving the matte red! Did you plastidip it yourself?

Yes I did. Budget reasons! I wont really recommend it on bikes. too many edges.

Looks great. I love myt SV's power and as well. Exiting a corner is so much fun on these things. I've never ridden a GSXR so I'm hoping I'll enjoy the way my slingshot acts when the day comes. Its gonna have flatslides on it and a full exhaust. I really hope I like living above 7k lol.
