    I have a Macbook Pro that shipped with Lion, but now i want to upgrade to an SSD. I know Lion have a Recovery HD to re-install Lion, but will that Recovery HD still be there after i install the brand new SSD in to the MBP?(The Recovery HD is store in the Hard Drive or the MacBook itself?)

    I believe the Recovery HD is stored on its own partition on the hard drive.
    You can download the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant and format a USB drive to reinstall Lion to the new hard drive.:)
