Hey Ho!!!

It's been a while.

So... I picked up a new project bike last night.

Same old story...
Was surfing through KIJIJI.
Found a bike that had been dropped.
Turned out it was an SV650, which I'm familiar with.
Turns out the front end was screwed. (I've done one of those swaps)
Turns out that I still have an '01 GSXR 1000 front end (complete) from my old build.

What followed was this conversation with the wife:
"Hey, can I get a bike?"
"you can fuck right off with that."
"But Sweetie, I have almost all of the parts, I could flip this and walk away doubling our investment."
"... interesting... "

...Cut to me loading the bike into my trailer last night.



It's a grey 2007 (gen 2) SV650 ABS.
Paid $1200.00 for it.

Pics of the project bike in the trailer:


Besides the busted forks, here's some of the other issues...
  • Busted rad and hoses
  • Broken foot controls (brake and shifter)
  • Smashed off front fairing (needs a new light and mirrors and signals for the front)

Pics of the damage:






But it starts, and it was running (before it was dumped), and these bikes are going for $4000.00 here in Edmonton, and it's the start of bike season.


TIME TO DO WORK!!!

make sure you inspect the frame. I am surprised the tank is in good shape. Good deal. SV's are easy to work on. When I found my SV. I had to buy a new frame with a title $160. I cant remember how much I paid for the tank. I mainly bought this bike just to play with.

Oh, and both foot controls were busted off, Lol.

So, my replacement front end is... incomplete.

The forks I have SHOULD be 2001 GSXR 1000's.
And the brake calipers should have been good to go, but they don't match up.

Any one have any idea what years these items are???

The forks:


And the calipers:


No idea why they won't mate up, totally different angle and bolt holes.
Fook.

BUT!!!!!
All is not lost, because I was able to get some work done after work. (with the help of a buddy)

Front end torn off


Think this fork is bent? heehehehehehehe


And the busted up rad


Got the rad off though.

And here's the speedo, saving it for later.


And this is where she sits for the night.


Now...
The SV that I picked up is an ABS version. I've been doing some reading but haven't found much about a front end swap on an ABS bike where they were able to keep the ABS.

... if it's not possible, then I'll just delete it all, tear it out and pull the fuse. But to make this a quick flip, I'd like to keep as much of it functioning as possible so the NEXT owner isn't shy with his $$$$$.

Btw, this is the ABS ring on the SV front wheel. There's a sensor that has to read 50 pulses for everything to be good in the world. There's one of the back wheel as well.

Pictured is the front.


That piece in the center with all the dashes cut out, is the guide, the sensor mounts on the side of the forks. Wondering if it's possible to fab up something so I can put that center piece on an 01 GSXR 1000 front rim and keep the whole thing ABS'ing. Need to think a bit on that one.

More pics and more updates to follow.

Lol Mike... maybe next summer.

Thank you Hrdy!!!

That certainly cuts down on my search parameters for new calipers.

This is what the 01GSXR 1000 forks looked like with what I thought would be the right brakes:


Those others look like they're going to fit much better.

Post Weekend Report...

I had a buddy come over Friday / Saturday to help with the wrenching.
He's not a bike guy (yet) but he's getting there. Mostly he's just helping around the project but I've given him some fun jobs and let him figure it out while I did something else.

I like him, think I'll keep him. (nohomo)


Also, for CASPER, here's the hall effect sensor on the 2007 SV650 ABS. (That #$%@ ring on the front wheel is causing me all sorts of headaches.)


In keeping with the understanding that this is only a FLIP bike ($$$$), here's how I see my options:
  1. keep it stock, only replace the forks with OEM.
  2. swap the front end, ignore the ABS warning on the dash.
  3. swap the front end, replace the gauge, disconnect the ABS.
  4. remove all the abs, replace with steel lines and OEM parts.
  5. find a [email protected]#$# ABS ring from another bike that will fit on my 01 GSXR 1000 front rotor
  6. go to a shop and get a ring made to fit the GSXR rotor.

And responses:
  1. fuck that
  2. risky for resale, could get less than I want
  3. better, gauges have their own issues I'd have to work through
  4. fuck that, this is a flip bike, not MY bike
  5. trying this one currently
  6. this is my last resort

Went into a shop in Edmonton (Echo cycles) and asked about my options. The guys there were super helpful and got all involved in my Frankenstein mess. This led to me borrowing a set of calipers from their shop and crawling on the floor measuring all the ABS bikes they had.
TRIUMPH
HONDA
SUZUKI
KAWASAKI
APRILA
etc...

The closest that I found was this:




... from a Kawasaki 2017 Z1000R ABS (go figure)

The part is like, $30.

Then I go online that night and start combing through some parts diagrams... that was 3 hours of a lot of squinting.

Found two other possibles.
A 2009 Kawaski Vulcan 1700 Voyager ABS ($32.29)
A 2009 Kawaski Concours 14 ABS ($71.22)

I'm going to check the Z1000R again and see which is less expensive, then I'll pull the trigger on that !#[email protected]#%[email protected]#$ ABS ring.

.....

Then I did some more work.

Got the tail off, electrical sorted, and made myself a castle nut socket for the SV.

PICTURES!!!






Home Made SV Steering stem castle nut (30 mm, deep socket):


Black bad, Silver good!!


Still a little rough.


Getting closer!!


Final Product!! (after about 2 - 2 1/2 hours of filing. Soooooo much filing)






... it the end, it's not perfect... but it also didn't cost me $80.
10/10 would do again.

End result of this tool:
GSXR FRONT END!!


I've also ordered some parts:
GSXR clip ons (so I don't have to lengthen the brake lines)
SV radiator
SV (naked) headlight and bikini fairing
SV brake levers (not really required...) but they're HK knock offs and are only $20, but will be the first thing the buyer sees.

Question to the masses of CF
My brake pedal busted off high up near the peg... and a new one is $80 (fuck that). What do you guys do to ghetto-fab a piece to the cast aluminium of the original brake???

Thanks in advance, stand by for more updates!!

I'm fairly sure the gold nissin calipers off a 929/954 will fit those forks. I'd buy them as they're great quality and much more corrosion resistant than Suzuki tokico calipers - you might look into it for a flip bike as they often Can be had real cheap.
