First of all, I would LOVE a little shifter kart powered by an SV650 twin! Sounds like a blast! Secondly, the previous owner of my SV650 (2000) battled with electrical stuff. Replaced coils and a few extra electrical bits, before finally realizing that one of the battery terminals were slightly loose! So, be thorough and systematically go through the electrical system, ensuring that everything is right! Including making sure that you are using a known good battery, and terminals are clean and snug!
