A pre-prepped racer is a good way to go, but almost all the ones I've seen are too expensive and still sell fast. I bet closer to the beginning of next season the prices will drop a lot. I'd stay away from one with motor mods beyond pipe+jetting, as A:you will NOT be any faster with more motor the first year and B:modded SV's are a lot more prone to grenading. Either way, you will be able to be competitve in 2 classes with AHRMA and 3 with WERA. Next year I plan on racing both, focusing more on closer races than trying to chase a championship. Once WERA comes out with their schedule, find an event that has a WERA race school. Take the school for $60 then race on Sunday in D Superbike, LW Twins, and Formula 2. If your SV is built, substitute HW Twins for D Super. Then for your next race weekend, also run the Solo 20 race on sat. This is a great way to practice during race conditions. Once you get a bike, email me with any specific setup ?'s.
