Yeah it is meant to be, I bought it a few years ago but never got round to fitting it and then the sv was off the road for a while. Now the sv is back in the road I tried it but I find the standard and gel seats are more comfy for me

Over the weekend I finished the SV up and put new tires on it. Then I did Snetterton on it yesterday and had a blast! What a capable little bike!

loose fitted a Chinapovic can with a custom link pipe i had made up. works perfect



just need to dress the flanges for the springs off and cut a slot or two then clamp up.

not bad for around £60
