Joss, The GS500 can be a money pit, just like any other bike. The SV's are great race bikes, I know a few racers that have bought SV's after owning GSXR like bikes and love the SV. I also saw an SV at my last track day that had GSXR forks/rotors/wheels on it and I sold my extra set of GSXR forks to an SV owner for his backup bike.
Remember "Racing is cheap, winning is expensive."
