so you added unsprung weight and are constantly shaking a pressurized container next to a massive heat source... that's prolly not the best idea

Awesome bike!
And about the "NOS" bottle. It looks like you'll loose that thing after you hit your first pothole anyways.
But yeah, for your own and others safety please get rid of that thing. Otherwise, great work!

both rotors and forks convert kinetic energy to heat and then try do dissipate it into air

Excellent, lots and lots of work went into that. Really well done.

I’m thinking of doing a gentle refresh and styling update on my Gladius this winter now it’s mechanically excellent. Nothing like what you’ve done, just a frame de-rust, re-paint and metal parts electroplated or replaced. My sticking point is what colour to repaint and what styling touches to do. The main one is either to keep it simple and just stick a tail tidy on it or to cut and shut and create a semi-cafe racer with a shortened back end. Mine has abs which closes the gap in the frame that’s normally open in a cafe. Hmm dilemmas..

Sorry for the off topic musings.

Hey [quinnj3] thank youuuu ☺
Ok my friend gooo for it ,its winter best period for some restoration . U have SFV650 gladius 2012 what color ur frame black or red ??
Ok for semi caferace it will look agressive perfect because the original designe it gives to cafe race looking so for me some modification on the rear frame and as u said if the ABS hydraulic system is an obstacle for u it will needs some time for a good modification . I wish u all the best .just tell me when u get started👍

It’s the white bodywork with black frame 2012 model. Quite rare from what I can see. Yes abs module may need repositioned, unfortunately it has to stay on the bike for mot purposes. The bike came from a riding school so has the battle scars to match. Has high miles but has been impeccably maintained and is mechanically sound. Some minor rust is appearing in the frame so it’ll be a full strip down and powder coat job. I really want it going again for late spring which is really putting me off a bigger build as I don’t have a lot of time each week to spend on it.

I thought the general shape and exposed frame lends itself really well to being a cafe racer. Clip on probably won’t happen but definitely a lower or even straight bar.

Hi,
Beautiful job you've done. I wonder how the SV1000 handles, compared to the 650? I know it has about 35% more power for about the same weight, but I never got a chance to try one. I'm definitely keeping my 650, but I'm thinking sometimes about getting something more powerful. A part of me, that loves V-twins, wants to go with the SV1000, and another part of me tells me to get a 2005-ish GSXR1000, or 2009. That has a lot nicer suspension, even more power, etc... Also: where in CA are you located? I'm in the SF Bay Area.

having owned many of both, i could never go quite as fast in the corners on the sv1k. it feels heavy, and getting on the power is a lot more of a liability.
