next up was to clean up the sprocket carrier, and mount a new sprocket. i'm using an SV650 rear wheel, and the SV uses a 525 chain while the Versys/ER6 uses a 520. 520 sprockets are readily available for the SV carrier, and i stayed with the stock gearing...46 tooth.

Driven racing steel sprocket.



OEM 45 tooth 525 sprocket on left, new 520 sprocket mounted on carrier right.

cleaned up the SV wheel, bearings felt a little rough, better change them, except the new SV bearings turned out to be for some other wheel. i'll do it later, at least the wheel was straight and cheap.

rotor side, i be stylin' now.



sprocket side, man, that lightened sprocket should be worth 5 mph.

This is a step up from the "slower than snails routine".

another comment on front wheel spacers...

the DL1000 wheel uses a 20mm axle, so obviously the spacers have a 20mm ID.

OEM DL1000 front wheel spacer right, ER6 rear wheel spacer left.



the DL spacer is 27mm OA length, 28mm diameter on the barrel, while the ER6 spacer is 17mm in length, and also has a 28mm diameter barrel. while i recommend a pair of DL spacers, there are obviously some other possibilities if you have some 20x28x? spacers in the parts bin.

the 2009-11 ER6 pull style adjusters, end caps, and side plates are specific to the swingarm and do not fit the earlier 2006-08 ER6 swingarm. all pieces are left/right only, and it's a very nice setup overall. the late model ER6 axle is 345mm, while the earlier version is 320mm, so the axles are not interchangeable either.

rear Full Bore mounted on the SV wheel, then onto the bike. if considering an SV rear, remember to buy a late model wheel that uses a 20mm axle, the first gen SV rear used a 17mm.

every scooter needs a scooter motor, and this time around my parts bike had the all black cop motor, man, that's sweet. i wouldn't have turned away from a parts bike without it if the price was right, but i worked a little harder to make a deal for the black one. by the time the dust settled, the 2300 mile motor was free.

now i have to get it all cleaned up for the install.

the last time i dropped the cop motor in the Versys frame i had a helper, so i just used a common automotive floor jack. no helper this time, so i used a moto lift, and it's the better way to do the job anyway. motor slides right in, jack it up, slide the bolt into the upper rear motor mount, and you're good, motor can't fall out. it helps to have a pair of drift pins to get things lined up.
