I haven't done anything to the rc51's suspension. Ok.....my parts appear to be off of a 2006-2007 gsxr 600-750. Ill take pics of the spares I have, if i have the dampener bracket its yours for free just pay shipping. The calipers i have to get some cash for. Ill post pics tmrw
    Yeah, but the (stock) SV suspension leaves a lot to be desired. Its probably the #1 improvement to that bike.

    I really like SV650's especially the 1st gen ones.

    Yeah that's why I said it's a no brainer on my little sv, the gsxr front-end and zx6r rear shock turn it into a completely different machine. And it's a first gen and for sale if you're interested

    I have an ohlins dampener I want to use - just need to find or fabricate a bracket. Ducs are going to be tough to beat in current config - need a spare engine for proper build.

    Thanks

    From what I was told from a former Hals guy is: The Buell brakes needed lots of maintenance when subjected to constant race abuse, and the GSXR forks were just better.

    1st test session completed, bike runs good, I have some sorting to do on the suspension settings - and gearbox downshifts were an issue - several false neutrals!
    (reverse shift pattern)
    Steering dampener is also mandatory - for me at least - luckily I have one from the XR1200 that will work. Number plate graphics are on their way. Test #2 scheduled for next Friday.

    Going so so, best finish was Gingerman race #1 in the Battle of Twins Class (2nd place) believe the ECM is going bad - bike is stalling randomly - power out of the ECM to fuel pump switching off.
