    Does a bike like the suzuki SV650 have its conrols further forward than the SV650-S? I thought they were the same bike just with or without a faring

    and most importantly are the clipons position, which are very wierd on the S because of the angle. many owners change them or complain of wrist problems.

    plus 1 to what everyone said

    you can put clip ons and rearsets on the naked though, a lot of people go w/ the gsxr front end swap w/ the sv regardless of naked or 's'

    That'd be pretty cool. Maybe I can find a naked 650 and do the GSXR kit or something.

    a guy in my club has 2 with gsxr front ends.. and that guy is fast!!! he sold one but still has one for sale (here in Reno)

    if you are even half serious about using this bike and it's handling capacities, you need the front swap

    handlebars are, well handlebars such as on your schwin you had when you were 10, or dirtbikes, its just one big attached pic (search google pics), clip ons are 2 seperate pieces, they sit lower than handlebars for a more exaggerated position on the wrist (which also makes the bike easier to turn)

    you can google pics for that as well, all sport bikes come w/ clip ons, some naked bikes like the sv650, gs500 etc come w/ handlebars

    Normal Handlebar

    Clip-on

    See how the clip-on isn't one straight bar (one piece of continuous metal). They angle toward the rider and down.

    clip ons are "clipped on" the fork tubes and a 'triple clamp' (lower and upper) holds the two forks to the steering hub. Clip sons can be sitting over or under the upper triple clamp, most recent sportbikes have them under. On my R6 I bougth aftermarket ones to put under (lower hand position).

    handle bars just connect on top of the triple clamps and from a metalbar, straight or curved, reeaches the two grips.

    by the way, you could theorically have handlebars tat have the exact same handle position as the clip ons, but they would bend lower and also would not be adjustable like most clip ons.

    A number of SV'ers will just flip the handle bars over for a more aggressive riding position.

    You got pictures of this?

    I have an SV and check some forums regularly and have never seen this. I'm not doubting you; I've just never really paid attention to too many handlebars.
