Put your phone under your pillow at night with a voice recording on repeat... 1 up 5 down - 1 up 5 down - 1 up 5 down - 1 up 5 down - 1 up 5 down - 1 up 5 down...

Fuck all that... we gotta get on with this!

The 325c single issue was cured with some silicon grease around the plug cap - immediately back to vee twin loveliness.
And there'll be a "1 up, 5 down" sticker on the top yoke at some point soon...

from the factory the shift knuckle on SVs points up, so if you flip it up vs down how it is now it'll be normal shift

there are occasionally problems with crashes pushing the shaft in and breaking the case with it pointed down, too. https://www.brgracing.com/collection...everseshiftkit some places have made special parts to get around that. not all that common, but it happens at times.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Thanks Junkie, I was happy to get used to the race shift, but the crash damage issue might persuade me to go back to a standard shift. I'd initially fitted it all as standard, for a normal shift, but there was clearance issues that I couldn't sort as the bike was squeezed in between my bike lift and the wall, and I couldn't really see what I was doing... But now I have a bit more space. ;-)

If you want to run reverse shift I'd recommend weakening the knuckle. I forget exactly what people do but they'll remove some material from the knuckle, so in a crash it just snaps the end off instead of damaging internals. Way cheaper than the BRG kit.

you want to join the sv group on fb, tight knit group, and my buddy Sergei knows almost everythifng there is to know about them. I am continuing to pick stuff up as I get more and more of them. He parts them out, and I supply about half of his bikes, so always parts available. restoring another one right now. if you have clearance with the frame, washers underneath rearset. just pulled some nice svparts.com rearsets to throw some functional by mildly tweaked stock foot controls, and this was required on the shifter side.

There is a small (like 3mm ish) drain hole for the sparkplug well a little ways down the head. It always gets plugged up so run a wire through it or something.
