Default SVBMX Build Thread (99 SV650)

Thought it was about time i started a build thread since its now fairly different to when i first bought it!



I’ve had my 99 SV650 (first bike) since October and absolutely love the vtwin power but was never a fan of the looks. So... firstly, i got rid of that horrible half fairing (apologies if you’re a fan but i am not!).

Then next was deciding what to do about the tail. I originally bought all the parts to do a diy tail tidy and make my own seat cowl (which i did), but after seeing a few SV’s with the Ducati Monster seat i decided that was the way to go

So i sourced a monster 696 seat and cowl off the bay and went to work on building a sub-frame and undertail to suit. I won’t go into much detail, il let the photos show the work. I made the undertray from sheet aluminium and then wrapped it with 3m carbon fibre effect vinyl. Was gonna paint it black but as i had some vinyl left from wrapping the seat cowl (which il never use again!) i thought it cant hurt to try it, came out pretty good. I also sourced the led tail light, indicators and number plate lights off ebay too.

I had to make some brackets to hold the tank down, which i then used to hook the front of the seat in to. Worked out nicely. And i used the original SV pillion latch/mech to lock the rear of the seat to the sub-frame.

Anyway, after spraying the sub-frame, bolting it on and fixing the cdi, r/r, fuses etc into place, its pretty much finished minus some fresh paint on the cowl.

Oh, i also swapped out the MASSIVE silencer for a “slightly” smaller gp cone! I made a baffle myself and wrapped what i could with Acoustafil, which made a substantial difference and definitely needed! I did start the bike up once without a baffle... unbearable! But now it sounds lovely.

Now, here’s a bunch of photos!



Offering up the seat


The GP cone from Pro Race Exhaust Systems


Subframe (not complete) and gp cone fitted (without baffle!)


Making sure everythings gonna fit


Next... making the undertray and incorporating the LED tail light





Under tray wrapped with 3M di-noc carbon firbre effect vinyl


Subframe complete and sprayed ready for install


Exhaust baffle made



Brackets made to hold the tank down and for the seat hooks to locate to


And this is it so far...





Next to do Is the fork swap. Ive already sourced an SRAD 750 front end so that’ll be going on within the next couple of weeks.Then its time for paint.

Let me know what ya think. All comments and suggestions welcome
