Im getting one built from SDC performance at the moment. In my opinion they build the best SV650's in the paddock. Not cheap like as there brandnew bikes nealry and built with brandnew race partswww.jhsracing.co.uk also build them for 6k from a brand new bike but the spec isnt as high and there dearer than sdc.
Unless your having us on, and your midfield now, and you were looking for the win?

A well set up MiniTwins is a lot less scary than something bigger. Why not hire one for the day and find out?
On the bright side, now you know where you are, where you need to be, and youve the time and the summer(?) ahead to keep improving and get there.
There used to be a rule of thumb that if your laptime was within 10 secs of a win/lap record for your class, that youd be quick enough to race.On short circuits, you could drop that to 7-8 secs. But its not far off as a general rule.
but having done a timed ESS day on Monday at Brands and comparing with race times I'm a bit disappointed and clearly aren't as quick as I felt I was.
i found 5 seconds at Mallory in 2 months leading up to and including my 1st and 2nd meeting.....
Plus or minus? (Sorry couldnt help myself)
Gareth, mine and steves SV's will be up for grabs come end of the season as will be building some from the K6 model for next season.
Some people will do anythign to make up that power deificit
Anyway on topic....Slenver - you cant compare the race SV to your bike, totally different scenario..heavier not set up..etc etc. Get some track time this year..do an ESS day. Get an SV and then you will soon find yourself being dragged along by others on test days. You be fine - we all started somewhere!
