One issue that is in the back of my mind is the extra weight of the 3mm OS pistons... The stock SV drive is so sweet no matter how hard it's treated... I remember years ago when Ducati first brought out the 748 & 916.. I test road them both back to back and honestly I preferred the 748... it was just so sweet and right... Sure the 916 had significantly more of everything, but that didn't make it better... I'm just hoping by turning mine into a 700 I'm not gunna make it unpleasant... overdone.... overstepped.... too bangy...
Not in the same league horse power wise but I owned a CBR250 which had a really sweet 249cc motor that was relatively vibration free (for a single) and didnt mind being revved out. Then Honda took to it with the boring bar and increased the capacity to 286cc and called it a 300. I bought one as it had more torque and HP but it was no where near as nicer motor. The vibration was awful.

Exactly. I for one am neither smart nor rich enough to out-engineer Suzuki.

I'm not trying to out engineer Suzuki.. I would love an SV1 but it's way too big, heavy and quick to ride one handed.. i can ride the 650 flat out all day no problem... where the big sports bikes get the jump on me is coming out of corners, especially going up the mountains... I'm looking for more grunt 2nd, 3rd & 4th gear and a bigger spread of power... I've done this sort of thing in my racing past many times, just not to an SV....

Re: Are stock rods safe ?

Zlock Racing 744cc big bore barrels and pistons
Falicon stroker crank and Falicon knife or Carrillo rods
800+cc and won't break (except for your bank account)
All the "grunt" you want coming out of corners, going up mountains, or in the parking lot of your favorite bar. But you'll still lose to the "big sports bikes" (I assume you mean 4 cyl liter class) on top end.

Are you riding like this on public roads?
