I am in the process of rebuilding an 01 SV and I currently have the motor out of the frame. Any suggestions on what I should check or replace on the motor since it's out. Already checked the valves. Intakes were fine but the exhaust were all tight.

What is the milage? Did you open it up to check on the internals? (other than valve clearance) Any know issues before removal?

Cam swap? :D hehe....

The following list is just off the top of my head and the items don't require engine removal to do but anyhow... you might want to check/replace:
- cam chain tensionners
- all gaskets/seals
- 05+ Shift star upgrade
- spark plugs
- Compression / leakdown test (maybe best done when mounted on bike... not sure)

While its out, clean every nook and cranny!

I'm certainly forgetting a bunch of things....

Not sure of the mileage. The bike had no gauges before I bought it. It's has about 5k on it since I've had it. I'm painting the engine black so cleaning and sanding.
The engine had some clutch issues but otherwise ran good.
I'm in no hurry to do this as it's a project so I'll see about the cam swap. Thanks
