  11. yeh it does, and mehh the sv's ok without the restricter (ECU) done a track day with the full power in and even thogh the bikes more than twice the power felt fine my MT-03 befor was not restricted (naughty i know...) but it produced 45bhp and only did 105mph (sv does 115 at 33bhp lol) but seriously dont bother staying on the cbt just get ure full license and enjoy ohh and my insurance aint to bad at £500 a year tptf legal and personal injury cover with 1years ncb
  12. not true im 17 and have a sv650 and have had a mt-03 660cc just take you full test and they "restrict" you to 33bhp (still good for over a tone and pull to 60mph faster than most cars) i have 1 year to go and my restriction is off PS the restriction is stupid as a r6 restricted is still faster than my sv650 unrestricted ......
  13. cheers and its a interview for tresham collage of motorsport, its a 1 year corce that leads on to a 1 year aprentiship skeem then another 1 year after that, both aprentiships are in actual race teams, and participate in classes like the ginetta cup , also go into to and have been offerd a place in level 3 motor sport at the trident center i wawickshire apparently me doing IT for the last 2 years (collage) (IT pratisiners) will help a lot, as we have to do CAD drawings of car parts, so all in all it should be a good year also hoping to take the SV for a spin around siverstone if
