    Specs:
    bored out to 677cc with 13:1 pistons, a few hours on the top end
    ported heads
    new (a few hours on it) akropovic full system
    PCIII USB
    04 GSXR750 forks (very recent revalve by Evolution Suspension)
    04 GSXR750 shock
    solo race seat cowl
    stock countershaft sprocket, 2 up out back
    brembo front master cylinder

    cost me $2000, including a couple leftovers (stock exhaust, bent stock forks) but not much.


    I'm gonna be spending some time wiring it up (with at least a headlight/taillight) and shit, and won't have my helmet/gloves/boots/jacket/pants until this weekend (they're 200ish miles away), so I can't ride it right now. I can't fucking wait... it's certainly got torque, 1st = liftitup VERY easily lulz (from the test ride in a parking lot).
    it also leaks a little oil, which he tried to fix today (he claims) but it still leaks... it isn't too bad.

    Nope, just bought it today. I had the 250 in running condition for about a year and put 8-9k on it.

    I'll post some updates when I get lights and stuff on it...

    if he got a great deal on it then it was a wise choice. if only an ok deal, there were better platforms to begin with, but in the end you come to the same results.

    how are the oil pickups on the newer sv's? on mine pulling the front up (as if i even could) would starve the motor pretty much right away

    It was a track bike, not a stunt bike. I don't plan on stunting it, I just got throttle happy in 1st gear on the test ride and the front end came up - not far, as I let off the gas right away and it came back down.

    I didn't buy it as a stunt bike either, it's gonna be for street use (on twisty roads, of course).

    And will it not lift the front on power stock? wow... this did EASILY.

    damn, looks like it was, and still is a lot of work...to each his own though.

    Congrats on the purchase.

    I was 140 pounds when I had my SV650S and the front end came up quite easily.

    Good bike, congrats.

    Sv650s with GSXR forks are track bikes. I hear they handle like a dream. Doubt it was meant for stunting :dunno:

    correct, it was a track bike. buttonwillow to be specific. he claims 2:04s on the AFM config... which he said was about the same as mid-pack 600s :dunno:

    did all of that to my bike last year. and if youre 250, might i recommend 30w oil in the forks. i put the 15w that came stock in and was unhappy with the bounciness with the new springs at highway speeds. so i drained it again and put in 20w. better but still kind of bouncy. i wanted to put 30 in this year but my lazy ass couldnt roll off the sofa soon enough.

    and might i ask, what is chopping the throttle?

    Haven't bothered w/ reverse due to the back straight being so ridiculously long... the SV rather be leaned over :o

    Have the akro system w/ CF pipe also, sounds great... just doesn't age well. Mine has yellowed and cracked at the bracket.

    ok, turns out it's been running on U4, which is 92 MON ~= 95 as we see it at the pump. Means it's reasonably likely it'll run fine on 91.

    i think i got some .90 sonic springs from svr, new and never used for less than 100. then i got some emulators. never used them and sold them for what i got them for.

    Anything is better then stock springs, but usually 20w is enough to firm up the dampening :hs:
