2001 SV650s 49k Miles

Hey Everyone!

I figured I should start a build thread since there's more work to be done, and already plenty thats been done. I got this 2001 Sv650s(K1) for 2100$ out the door, a little over priced I think, since there were some glaring issues after close inspection lol.

On the way back from the shop I bought it at:


She's parked in the garage:


My roommate notices a leak, I just freaking got it home!!!:


Not to mention the radiator bracket was broken:


Couldn't resist going on a ride the next day, got a nail in a brand new tire lmao:

Plugged it up when I got home.

I got a like new radiator from a G2 model off ebay for 60$, got it installed under warranty by the shop.

Got new tank pads for my bday, woot woot!:


With the leak sorted out, I really wanted to upgrade the dinky headlights after a night ride from my moms house. Got the SpeedMetal LED kit from cycle gear, Here are the images:


Realized I didn't need to unscrew anything afterall.







Started to get a feel for the bike and noticed the brakes should be a little more snappy. So I took off the pads and found this abomination:



Removed the foam that tends to obstruct the intake:


Added the R6 throttle tube!:


The dirty old one


New Throttle cables and Clutch cable, and worm gear. Forgot to take pics of those lol

quick update on the bike, since the last post, she's gotten new frame sliders, a chain, and some first time track experience lol Also, Jason from JPH suspension set the preload and compression on my rear shock, feels so much better now.

Re: 2001 SV650s 49k Miles

crashed this week at ThunderHill Raceway in California on Monday for the 5 mile full track. I have a crash analysis if interested here; http://bayarearidersforum.com/forums...0#post10150430

Here's the damage:






this is the front cowling brace that's bent:


all naked! lol:


got to using big wrenches and bars for leverage, some light mallet smashing and she's pretty much straight. The trick was working it while it's bolted to the frame, got it within eyeball tolerance, then fitted the farings multiple times to check where i needed to make more adjustments:

Re: 2001 SV650s 49k Miles

all put back together, front end felt a little catty wompus above 60mph, so I remounted the front wheel to hopefully relieve some possible tweak caused by the crash. Seems to have really helped. still something a little funky there though. doesn't feel the same as before. maybe I deformed one or both of the wheel spacers causing the wheel to move side to side slightly while riding. Feels way better now, but there's still something I can't put my finger on.

Re: 2001 SV650s 49k Miles

Update:!

Re-set the forks and triple mount, that fixed my wobble that I was having.

I did the catpoopman mod, 145 mains, and 17.5 pilot, with desnorkel and Delkevic slip on. Got racetech springs in front for 200lb rider w/gold valves. Re-built the 06' Zx10 rear shock, and adjusted my bucket shims, exhaust was way outta tolerance.

Had to make sure my timing was good:


Made a small tool to hold the auto cam-chain tensioner under tension:


Came out pretty nice:


Milling out some ABS:


Got some cheap rearsets off of ebay:
