I'm CCing the list because others there know more than I do.

Well first I do have two racebikes, but one is an ex500 ;-)
(not counting the two-stroke and 120cc dirt bike)

On my 2002 sv650s it did seem to improve shifting feel, consistency. 
However, we didn't install the Factory Pro Kit.  Zoran said that the '05 
oem star was the same profile, and we installed that instead.

So from what I understand, getting the '05 star from your local dealer 
is probably a better choice, but at this point I will defer to people 
who know more than I.
