Re: New project... 86 GSXR 1100

As you're making the tank yourself why not add some baffles into it as opposed to the foam? Also do you know how much foam is required and how long it lasts?

Re: SV Curvy retro racer project

Thats a nice looking bike. I would look to the exhaust next though, the can, link pipe, and headers don't match. The can goes nicely with the bike, but the different materials let it down a bit. Not...

Re: Factory Pro Velocity stacks

Are you saying that changing the velocity stacks as described in the original post does not work?

Re: 2000 sv650 won't start

So a curvy SV doesn't have a tip over switch, if the bike goes over it should dump its float bowls and thus stop running (though this doesn't always happen). Also if the main fuse is blown bridging...

Re: Crank shaft swap. injected for Carby

Not sure the years unfortunately. I just remember reading that the first injection engines occasionally suffered on the generator side. Might be worth checking the part numbers out across the years,...

Re: Crank shaft swap. injected for Carby

Later injection crank would be good, but you will still have the same bearing and thrust measure and install as you would with the curvy crank swap.

Swapping the top end and the associated bit is...

Re: Crank shaft swap. injected for Carby

I have looked into this myself and from what I could discover yes it should fit straight in as they are essentially the same item. However you will need to ensure that the bearing shells are the...

Re: Poor running after cam chain swap

Throttle bodies/ injectors, are they seated correctly with no air leaks?

And why were you swapping the cam chains?

Are you running the standard cam chain tensioners?

What did you remove and...

Re: Poor running after cam chain swap

The first thing I'd be interested in is what was dropping into your drain bucket of oil?

Next I'd look at the injectors, are the on properly? Same question for the airbox and suchlike, what did...

Re: 2001 SV650 Engine Diagnostic Help

If you have found play in the main bearings in short, that engine is done I'm sorry to say.

If you were to continue to run the engine it will get worse as it wears more. At the moment other parts...

Re: 2001 SV650 Engine Diagnostic Help

Re: 2001 SV650 Engine Diagnostic Help

A loose spark plug can make some nasty noises as you won't have the correct compression, the air fuel mixture will be out, and it may not be sparking when needed. But then like I say its hard to...

Re: 2001 SV650 Engine Diagnostic Help

Re: SV not running right

Hard to be sure from remote diagnostics, but I would suspect an air leak at some point. If you have balanced the carbs are you sure that you've blanked off the balance connectors fully and there are...

Re: 99 sv650n worm drive failure?

It seizes and snaps your clutch cable 60 miles from home.

As the above, go through the adjustment routines and lube the worm up good.

Re: Fuel tank refresh- torque settings?

Fixed for you, no charge.



No. If you're going to go for carbon it should only be the real stuff, and even then carbon should be known and not seen.
