Love it. I'm hoping the proliferation of 17" knobby tires encourages more folks to try this.

the way I see it

The guy said it was just all worn out, but to me a gold mine of conversion parts go to waste here...
I taped it, but I also pleaded with him to no avail not to do it. NO

Since TDMs are hot right now, I thought I'd post a couple pix of mine from back in the day. Great stunt bike.

This thread is inspiring (for the most part ) for over a year I have been thinking about a project like this.
Here is my GS500e Adventure Project that I am currently working on

This is neat. I glance over the other thread. Here is a little idea, which would be way more invasive to the bike:

An SV1000 shock has about 86mm of travel over the 60mm the SV650 shock has; it's also 15-20mm longer(considering where you drilled the hole) which means the tail comes up about 30-40mm higher. That leaves enough room for a Honda fork. Some GSXR shocks have been place into the GS which raise the bike just as much but not giving it that much more suspension. The SV1000 shock should take you from 115 to about 170mm of travel. That's KLR territory. But it's a piggyback shock, So the airbox needs surgery.

Those are all interesting ideas. I am kinda committed to the current setup for now. part of the reason I lowered the rear was twofold. I didn't want the bike to be leaning forward, and in order to go higher in the back I would have to rework the chain path.

Actually the new fork springs are working quite well and balance well with the rear sv shock. Keep in mind I don't want to turn this into a klr or xrl.

What year SV1000 shock are you talking about? I'm trying to add a few inches of travel to an SV650.

Question

Does anybody know where I can find wheel spacers that are listed by size?

I'm looking for spacers with a bore of 22mm and a 25 mm OD, to get a 22mm alxe to fit into bearings with a 25mm bore. And also spacers center the wheel.
