SV650 vs Fireblade @ TT Circuit
Racing a Suzuki SV650s together with a Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade on the TT
Circuit of Assen. Filmed with two GoPro HD Hero2 cameras on the bike.
SV650 GSXR Fork Swap - Quick and Dirty
Quick and Dirty swap of GSXR forks onto my 1st generation '01 SV650.
This SV650 is a first generation model, and that is important to know
because I needed a '96-99 GSXR750 SRAD triples for this project. They are
nearly a direct bolt-on to the SV frame head, the ignition switch will bolt
in, the steering lock and steering stops will also work. However, you will
need a custom top bearing from http://TWFracing.com becasue the steering
stem on the '96-99 GSXR750 triples is bigger at the top than the original
.99-'02 SV650 steering stem. Don't bother looking for that bearing
elsewhere, its a custom 47x30x15mm bearing that is custom manufactured by
them especially for this application.
The forks are from a '03 GSXR1000, but any fork legs with a 50mm top and
54mm bottom will bolt directly into the the '96-99 GSXR750 triples. When
using these '96-99 GSXR750 triples, you will also need the matching axle
and wheel as the width of these triples is a little wider than the norm. A
TL1000S or TL100R or Hayabusa wheel will also fit.
The new 96-99 GSXR750 axle is bigger than the SV650 part, so the
speedometer drive won't fit unless you either mount it on the rear axle (to
be covered in a future video) or if you install a hall-effects sensor with
magnets on the front wheel.

all laugh at you. If you have nay questions or any doubts in this type of

performed on your motor vehicles by a professional mechanic. Don't be a

Here is me playing around with a friends Go Pro with my 2003 SV650S with a
few mods here and there, but nothing extreme. Judging from the video it
looks like the 0-60 is right around 3.7 and 100 in about 10 and down from
100 to 20 in about 5.. so right around what the bike is capable of. Not bad
for for 4400' in elevation. But on private roads and for professionals
Lowside Crash - Ducati Monster & Suzuki SV650
Two similar motorcycle crashes. Both appear to hit uneven road before
lowsiding. . Some thought suspension adjustment may have been the cause of
the Ducati crash. Crashes occurred on different days and the road was in
good condition. Riders were both uninjured. They both know the road and had
made a number of passes before crashing.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a mecca for motorcycles & fast
cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular visitors every
weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore and at a view
point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts. Crashes are
common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The Snake is a
two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders usually will
make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner when
assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are not
going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
