been off my bike for most of the summer but now that it's getting cooler I had the rear master cylinder replaced (under warranty) changed the fluids and rolled the sv out. it's been awesome ripping it up the last few days, been riding like a squid and I need to grow back up or I will be having a serious talk with the law.

vapor cannister I'm guessing, flooded?

Anyway, just got done bypassing it and noticed something under the rear

saying "checker sports" and wires - black, blue, red.
It is plugged in-line between two of the factory connectors.
After looking at the wiring diagrams and colors, I'm guessing
it's a delimiter, gear postition "spoofer" probably to show 4th gear?
Can't find anything searching the net except some chatter about an out- of- business co.

These bikes don't have any sort of gear position display other than
a neutral light - do they? I'd unplug the delimiter if it would gain me
a top gear light, but???
Yeah, sounds like it might be the TRE mod, which is very common among SV1k owners. If you go over to SV-Portal.com you'll find a bunch of info about it.

That black 05 is pretty!

I've seriously thought about making my SV1KS into a naked one, but I want a real OEM conversion and it is kinda expensive. I hate how naked conversions look with aftermarket parts, they reek of wrecked bike.

Hey Silverbeard,

Nice looking SV. Where did you get that cowl/wind deflector mounted above the headlight? Is that the stock piece off the later model SV650? I've always liked the look of the 650's piece, but I wasn't sure if it would fit the SV1K.

Weird I know, but humor me.

I would like to find a way to get about 25-40mm extra travel on the front and back. The back is easy, buy a new shock, but the front is much harder to figure out. That with riser bars would make the bike a Multi Strada starter kit for about 1/5 the cost. As it is, dirt and gravel roads are really a test of one's character, or display of one's stupidity. Since I have no funds for selling and buying a more versatile bike with character, humor me. How could I get an inch to inch and a half more travel up front?

oh, and for those of you who want to tell me how dumb this is and how it would just ruin a good bike by making a bad different kind of bike.... I get it.

just humor me, how could I get more travel up front without breaking the bank?

I guess the easiest way would be to swap another set of longer 46mm forks, several bikes use that size, for example, the ZZR600.

BUT, I'm pretty sure that there are lots of people willing to trade ADV bikes for sportbikes. Most of the ADV bikes are owned by people that consider offroading to ride over some grass in the sidewalk in front of the Starbucks.

That's no conversion, that's a real SV1000 "N". They kept selling the Naked one in Europe, Australia and Oz alonside the SV1000S for the entire run. I think USA/Canada were the only ones that didn't got the naked one after 2003.

(We never got either one)

You can do it to your bike, with OEM bits. But it gets stupidly expensive FAST.

I totally agree...If the bike you have is offered as a naked bike from the factory go the OEM route for conversion...Otherwise you have to be real careful with do it yourself naked bike conversions because it's real easy to end up with something that looks horrible...

Nice looking SV, Ganze.

Just in time for the annual SVRiders rally at Deal's Gap in June.
