Default 2000 SV650 with Ducati monster seat

So I've been working on a 2000 SV650 for the last month or so I got at the end of last year. I'm a 260lb tall guy so I knew some modifications to the seating position were in order. Unfortunately someone whacked a big dent in the top of the tank and busted the tail up a little bit. Somone already stuck a Kawasaki zx rear shock in it and evidently some kind of weird valve emulators in the forks. I'll have to take a picture later, never seen them before.

First thing I did was replace the brakes. The stockers felt really wooden/crappy. I'm not sure if this is just how SV's are, or something was wrong with them. I got a "Brembo" master from a R1 and a set of early 2000's GSXR calipers. I used some adapters and brake lines from SV Racing Parts.





Then it was on to the forks. I got some RaceTech gold valves, (I think) 1kg/mm springs, and new fork seals since they were leaking a little bit. Someone once told me you shouldn't hang your brakes like this... woops.



From there I decided to ditch the seat (which evidently I didn't take any pictures of the bike before I started messing with it).











After I finish welded it up, I painted it.



New brake res.


How it basically turned out. I used a lot of the original subframe and brackets to make it. I was going to use a smaller tail light, but I found a way to use the stock one and thought why not.



Now I have to figure out the exhaust. I plan on using the D&D can and pipes, but I think the exhaust looks too droopy, and I need top figure out how to hang it with a subframe that is much higher. It's not horrible, but it seems like it'd be weird to have a tube or something go a foot down to the can.




Playing around with photoshop to shorten the can and kick it up slightly


IDK if I should also go higher. What do you guys think? This bike is one of my tamer projects, but it's such a great bike to ride I had to put my spin on it.

Oh and I do have a cowl for the seat, and I have a tank thats in nice condition with a couple small dents I need to fix. I'm probably going to keep it this way until I can paint the new tank, cowl and front fender.

This is one of the valve emulators(?) that were in my forks when I rebuilt them. It had stock springs, not sure how much good these did as I was way too heavy for the springs anyway and the bike dove pretty bad when braking.

Thanks, that's it! Surprised these things are more expensive than RT emulators. There were no modifications to the dampening rod so I'm not sure how effective they are.

I did some reading on them, it sounds like they work well mostly for stock spring rate bikes. I suppose I can try to sell them (if anyone on here wants them).

What do you guys think about me making a bracket off the right heel guard to hang the muffler? I've got some scrap aluminum and I've been dying to try out my new tig machine on AC.

So I'm finally finishing up my SV.

Shortened the muffler. I went over the clearcoat with some polishing compound which removed a lot of the yellowing. Not 100%, but better.


I also chopped/cut and rewelded the pipe to angle up more. The hole on the exhaust hanger clamp was too big for the size bolts I wanted to use, so I welded it closed and redrilled it. I also cut it off and welded it to be inline with the rearset guard.


Other than that the bracket was a short piece of steel I cut and drilled on both ends. It seems to put enough pressure on the muffler to keep it from moving. I know the heel guard isn't all that strong so I'll see how this holds up. If I have to I'll make a new one out of some 6061.



I have some LED plate bolts that Im going to install so the plate is lit up at night. I also have a Monster seat cowl I'm going to paint when I paint the tank and front fender.

And here she is outside in better light.


You can see how jacked up the tank was when I got it. Thankfully I found another one on the cheap, but it has a small dent I want to fix and repaint before I put gas in it.

Are those the stock risers? They look fantastic.

It's not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.
