Ray when you swapped out the bars on your naked did the aftermarket bars fall to the spec of the SV650S stock clip on's? Or were they even lower/comparable to any other SS?
Reason I am asking b/c if you switched out the heli bars on your naked for the sport bars and you got good results...I wonder what would happen if you swapped out SV650S clip ons for SS ones and put aftermarket rearsets on a stock SV650S? I'm worried about the seat height however b/c most SS seats are lower...
I got type 2 bars:
Suzuki SV650 Handlebar
I was concerned that the type 1 bars would be too aggressive. It looks like the type 1 are about the same as svs clip-ons.
I know others who have swapped svs clip-ons for others (gsx-r maybe) with less of a rise from the attachment clamp. On my '05 sv1000s, the clip-ons are attached just under the top triple clamp. It looks like they could easily be lowered about an inch down the fork tube without the grips hitting the fairing or tank, but I haven't tried it. How the pegs and seat would interact depends a lot on your height and proportions. YMMV
I'm suprised that someone would want to put LOWER bars on a naked SV. I felt the SV actually handled better (super easy turn in, more leverage) with the with the real handlebar. I can see raising the legs because it was easy to have lazy foot position and drag your feet, but the bars?
