Did you figure out the issue with the one cold pipe?
I assume it wasn't anything cereal, just curious.

Only thing I can figure out is I found an exhaust leak the other day on the rear cylinder pipe where it connects to the manifold down below. I need a new gasket for it. Other than that, it seems to be a common trait. Runs fine, plugs are good color, so.....not gonna worry about it anymore.

Looks great Redkat. Orange shorties fit it nice.

Nice SV. If you would like some front end suspension info, I replaced my springs with race tech springs and added race tech emulators to it. I haven't done anything with the rear suspension yet but i am sure you can find some info on what to get if you do replace it.

svrider.com is also another great sv site to look into.

I think you are comparing apples to oranges.

I believe the 650 forks are a non-cartridge type, and the 1000 are a cartridge type. The RT Emulators are actually "cartridge emulators" to make them work similar to cartridge forks, which his already are. My guess is that his 1000 forks only need a good shim stack and maybe spring rate correction to work well.

All they really need is a straight rate spring instead of the progressive rate that they come with. Whole new bike after you do that and swap out the rear shock.
