End can performance question

A few years back I had a Hornet 600 which was great, apart from a huge ugly end can. At the NEC show I bought an Art can for it which looked and sounded much better.

The only issue was that at...

Re: SV refurb questions

Andy, it's just the standard cowl. Maybe the angle makes it look different ?

Re: SV refurb questions

A mere 3 months later and the SV is back together again. Forks have new springs, oil and paint. Wheels have new paint. Need to organise braided cables, a hugger and an end can. Happy (and...

Re: SV650s k8 red seat wanted

I've got one in the garage. Took it off my black K8 and put a black one on it. It was in immaculate condition when I put it away, so doubt that's changed. PM me if it sounds like what you need.

Re: SV refurb questions

Head finally drilled off the offending mudguard screw. Then a nut welded to the stump which screwed off neat as you like.

Neither of which was done by me - its good to have talented friends with...

Re: SV refurb questions

It's a Warrior. Not sure where I got it from, but I just had a quick look on-line and Demon Tweeks are doing them for 40. I think I paid 28 for it so there may be deals out there. It's rock...

Re: SV refurb questions

A slight bit of success. Right hand bolt off (eventually), so I removed the forks, but with the mudguard still attached to the left fork.

Not ideal, but I can now put it in vice and access the...

Re: SV refurb questions

I found an old thread from 2013, which suggests that these bolts seizing is pretty common.

I put the wheels back on and took it off the stands so I could give it more than a gentle tap with the...

Re: SV refurb questions

Been busy last couple of days but went out today to take the mudguard and forks off - plan was to take everything round for powder coating.

Minor (I hope) snag. The mudguard bolts are properly...

Re: SV refurb questions

Cheers for the replies.

I was thinking of powder coating over painting because I thought that would be a more robust finish, and because there's a few powder-coaters near me. I'm open-minded...

Re: Another electrical issue

Cheers for the link. Might be useful to have, although it's back to normal again (I've probably just jinxed it now !!!).

Re: Another electrical issue

I suppose there's space to put a little in, but I don't know if you should or shouldn't, to be honest (not an expert by any stretch of the imagination).

All I did was to take the front cover off,...

Re: Another electrical issue

It was indeed a sticking starter motor, so i removed, cleaned and put it back in - fired first time. With the new battery it did so with a bit more...

Re: Another electrical issue

I think I'm just about sorted now.

First of all, I charged up the new battery as advised. That in itself didn't make much difference (still the same noise from starter relay). However, when I...

Re: Another electrical issue

The engine hasn't turned over once since I got the new battery, whether by jumping, bumping or off the button.

I think there's a dodgy connection, faulty relay or switch somewhere. Hopefully the...

Re: Another electrical issue

Don't have much time tonight, but stuck it in 2nd, rocked it back and forth, then tried to start it. Nothing.

Then I had a go at bump starting it. Still nothing.

Oh yes, and jump starting it...

Re: Another electrical issue

Hi Blapper. Sorry - forgot to mention that I've not tried bumping it yet. I kind of thought it would be a waste of time, as there's a more fundamental issue there. I'll give it a go tonight though -...

Re: Another electrical issue

That's something I didn't do. Will have a look tonight.

On my way out this morning I tried to start it with the kill-switch at 'off'. It didn't start (unsurprisingly), but this time there...

Re: Another electrical issue

Just been out in the garage for a look - it's freeeeezing.

Anyway, all connectors to the battery look ok.

Connectors to the starter motor look fine.

The starter relay looks clean and tidy,...

Thanks for that.

The battery is fully charged. I got it at my local bike shop and they double checked it before I left.

I've got a charger if need be, but when I get home tonight I'll have a...

I've been searching the forums for some guidance but can't find anything exactly the same.

The (original) battery on my K8 has been on the way out for a few weeks. By using it every day it just...
