Pretty hot for riding around here so got some work done on the SV after a short ride to the Crest to try out the twisty turns.

First put some new Shinko 705's on order. The 244 and 700 was only available in 5.1 inch wide and I thought the rear rim would be too wide.

Rebuilt the front forks and put on some new fork protectors.

Made a new spcer for the front axle cause the fist one was too loose. Still kind of hard to put the wheel on since the spacer slips so I put some silicone sealer on it to hold it into the fork clamps.

This shot shows the custom nut I made to adapt the SV axle to the YZ forks.

Started laying out a skid plate.
