a while back in this thread i asked whether anyone owned a 2nd generation SV650, i needed some information. no SV650 owners showed up, but an inmate by the name of "badguy" stepped right up to the plate. "whatcha need?"

i'm running the DL1000 19" three spoke front and wanted a matching 17" three spoke rear in the correct width with a 20mm axle. i needed the whole assembly, it had to be cheap, and that narrowed it down to the SV650 rear. i needed "badguy" to research some fitment issues to make sure it was pretty close before i went out and bought one. "badguy" PM'd me back in no time with the info, looked decent, so i found a cheap wheel, near new.



there are some things to work out to make it go, but it doesn't look like a big deal. the SV650 runs 525, but there are 520 sprockets available that bolt right up to the SV hub. i might keep the parts bike wheels for a SM set.

"badguy" turned out to be a good guy. much grass, my friend.

JD I think I most have missed it so I'm going to ask. What do you do with all your other bikes. I know you layed one down (glad your alright) but I'm talking about the ER-6C you built??? You do some awesome work man and I got to admit it inspires the hell out of me

sure, just plan a jailbreak from smibville this spring. you're probably tired of looking at all that BMW iron over there anyway.

Thanks but the thing about that is the gearing. I doubt it would be great for single track riding. Hell come to think about it my rear shock is blown because of my riding style

huh? gearing? the 6 speed cartridge style transmissions are identical in the two engines. the stock versys and 650r bikes are even delivered with the same sprocket sets. the engines are identical in size, configuration, and weight.

the 649HP engine uses different cams and runs higher compression, the CPU is mapped slightly differently, and produces more horsepower and torque in what i think is a pretty trackable range, even on dirt. crack those throttle bodies WFO on gravel or dirt and you better be holding on to something 'cause you're goin' for a ride. you can lighten the front end easily in 5th and 6th, both over drive gears.

then there's the cost. the 650R has to be one of the most crashed bikes ever produced and can be found everywhere in the USA with low miles and in good running condition...DIRT CHEAP. if you say you can't find one cheap, you just ain't looking very hard. i could go out and find another one today if i had to. just takes some research.

buy the whole bike and build it, or part it out if you just want the 649HP swap engine and related parts. in my case, the parts bike was so inexpensive that by the time i sell everything i don't want from that bike, the low mile engine is FREE and i've even made some money i can put in the build. see many of the lower performance engine equipped KLE650s available like that?

that's why you want the 649HP. case closed, next question.

my bike is coming along slowly. i freshened up my fuel tank scenario. Canned bedliner is now my new favorite finish. if somebody needs the fuel pump bung for a klre build off the old tank, let me know.


My peg situation is in flux. shown is versyse peg overlaying ninja peg, much better position. option 2 is the crf peg shown with custom mounts like the other mutant thread. hmmmm


i have a willing donor should i decide to go ala sanjoh.

you could have that ready to roll pretty quick. i'd concentrate on wheels and suspension, you can tinker with the pegs any time.

do you have a KTM cush drive rear also?
