Thanks. It should look even better once I get the numbers and stuff on it. Turns out we are going to do a poster for our sponsor, so there (hopefully) will be some good action shots of it on the track.

I"m not positive of the paint cost because I had a butt load of other work done on it at the same time. I believe the paint alone was $200. The upper and tail are new, the lower was repaired. (I bought the bike used)

The tank just looks like that in the pic.

Heres our other bike.

Aprilia RS250.

Notice the air-intake that lies below the crest on the front fairing, and the dual-stacked two-stroke type exhaust.

Let other people be right sometimes...it soothes them for being nothing else!

Love the bike, very nice. Where did you get the fairings or did you do them yourself? I currently have the SV650S and might consider the full fairing, looks sweet. What kind of wheels to have on it? I noticed that your are black, but the one on my bike are stock silver. Did you just paint them or are they another brand?

The plastic is Sharkskins.

The wheels are dark gray. Stock 2000 as far as I know. The pic is kind of dark.

Street-prep'd SV with Sharkskinz:






Refer to SV650.org for more photos and details. I believe there is a How-To with excellent pictures on how to do this on SV650.org
