Re: Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

I don't have the marked up sketch in front of me at the moment, but the changes I was considering would leave the clutch switch operation unchanged from an ECU point of view. Unless the switch...

Re: Fork oil options

My understanding is that oil weight will depend on the spring rate. So a heavier spring, as you have, matches thicker oil.

Re: Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

Hi,
I thought I'd updated the thread, sorry. I tested exactly as suggested, next time it didn't fire straightaway I kept the starter button down and clutch held in, and jiggled the clutch lever. ...

Re: Will an R1 front master cylinder fit?

Normal if they're new pads, not really if you're refitting the existing one. However check again after a few miles before worrying. What I sometimes do is try to avoid using the front brake for a...

Re: Will an R1 front master cylinder fit?

You could try a bolt and nut through the disconnected banjo end, with washers either side. You don't need the seal to be perfect, as long as it allows some pressure be developed for a second or so.

Re: Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

Thanks. I think replacing the clutch switch might make sense as a precaution.

I might also look at bypassing the side stand switch, or maybe the whole side stand relay stuff. I don't like the...

Re: Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

Well this isn't going according to plan, although not necessarily a disaster. I couldn't get it to fail at all at the weekend, so was not able to do any troubleshooting. Looking back there were a...

Re: Putting standard can back on

I sealed mine with a little smear of high temperature silicone. I suspect it's not high temperature enough, but even if that's the case the burned remnants are clearly enough to seal the joints. I...

Re: Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

The lights are switched off directly by a second normally closed contact on the starter button. So they switch off any time that button is pressed, irrespective of any interlock on the starter...

Re: Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

Thanks, that's interesting. I didn't really think the clutch switch likely, as the only way I get the bike to start when it's in the mood is by switching off and back on. Not by repeatedly pulling...

Re: SV650 Bogging down upon quick throttle response

At MOT last year I got the dealer to check valve clearances and balance TBs. I completely forgot about the effect on TPS until I was messing around and set Dealer Mode for another reason. It was...

Intermittent Starter Problem - 650 Pointy

Hi,

I've been having a few issues recently where the starter doesn't work until I switch off and back on a few times, either the ignition or the stop switch. It varies - Monday morning it needed...

Re: SV650 Bogging down upon quick throttle response

I think part of the problem is that the TPS is on the rear throttle body, rather than the one directly controlled by the throttle cable. So it's dependent on any backlash in the linkage, and also...

Re: Will an R1 front master cylinder fit?

Pretty much the same here, except I start with the jar empty. No real need for fancy one way valves or anything since you can reach the bleed screw with one hand and the brake lever with the other. ...

Re: SV650 Bogging down upon quick throttle response

Yes, it's supposed to be in the middle when the bike's idling, and try and set it so it goes "up" almost as soon as the throttle's opened. Check slowly, the display only updates every 1/2 second or...

Re: Corrosion/Water Proofing Connectors

Thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up with all the tail bodywork removed in any case, to get access to the wiring harness, and I think the interface between battery tray and snowplough was not...

Corrosion/Water Proofing Connectors

Hi,
My bike (650S L2 Pointy) was completely disabled by corrosion of the fuel pump relay connector. When I say corrosion, that's an understatement as one of the terminals in the connector was...

Re: SV650 L2 Twin Spark Dealer Mode Connector

Found it! I think.


I was looking for a white connector with nothing plugged into it, with or without a blanking cover. The only white connector in the vicinity was jammed down under that alarm...

Re: SV650 L2 Twin Spark Dealer Mode Connector

Thanks. I think the body work will need to come off, I can see some while connectors but they're irretrievably trapped under the frame tube and not accessible from above. The previous owner had a...

Re: SV650 L2 Twin Spark Dealer Mode Connector

By the way, when did this forum start forcing the almost unreadable black colour scheme? It used to remember my choice, now every page refresh or page change forces back to that horrible black.

SV650 L2 Twin Spark Dealer Mode Connector

Hi,
I wonder is anyone has a picture or description of the dealer mode connector on a 650 twin spark. I simply can't find anything that looks like the pictures for the previous model...

Re: +3 Teeth Rear Sprocket

It might be side-to-side play which apparently they almost all have right from the factory. "Bibio" on here used to supply shims to take up that slack.

Re: Caliper service kit??

There should be two seals, you'll see the two grooves in the caliper. My opinion is that if the corrosion damage can be felt with your fingernail, the pistons are toast. That was the case with my...
