    I would like a project bike in the not to distant future
    I am not sure if I should buy a 2005-2010 gsx 750 and then use my SV as a project bike. Add USD forks, 180 rear Tyre etc.
    Or keep the SV as is for a daily ride then get a cheap - ish GSX-R 750 to play with. Maybe street fighter it
    I like to tinker a bit and have not messed with a bike for quite a few years.

    P.S sorry to run your thread of topic

    You end up paying not much more for a 2000-2005 GSX-R750 than you would for a much older one, unfortunately. And the newer ones are light years ahead. 96 they got a better frame, 98 fuel injection, 2000-2003 are the good ones for front end swaps for SVs; the damping in the 2000-03 bikes was actually very good AND is an excellent modifiable base.

    While I like SVs, you sink a lot of cash in if you want to do front end (or get the forks working well), rear shock swap, 5.5" wheel to run a 180 tyre and all of that...
