Hi. I can't say I have a streetfighter. Basically it's my bike which I changed a few things to my liking. I'm not a stunter per say since I have a twin. I enjoy riding.

Bike- o5 SV650, with 98 SRAD750 forks, buell headlight setup, M4 exhaust
Before:


After:


winter plans: 95 GSXR 1100 rear wheel with 520 conv, anodize the forks gold, 636 rear shock, swapping the exhaust cams, ss lines, maybe a paint job.

Sup Enrico. I see you found this cool little site that I too came across when deciding I was gonna make a street fighter outta my spare Gix.

BTW, let me know if you want some help doing the cam swap. I did that swap with a track buddy of mine last year in CT.

Thanks all, no profile pics. The bike is currently apart right now. I have a bunch of other parts I want to put on, but since I'm not a pro with tools, things get stuck, or I find out I need another part to make things work. My left arm is in bad shape which doesn't help, but I do what I can do.

Maybe I'll take pics of the pieces.

Yeah Doug, thanks for the offer. I kinda want to do as much as possible myself for the pride thing. That way even if someone says the bike looks like shit, I can always say that it's mine. I may have to hit you up with a bunch of PM's with advice.

Those brake rotor allen bolts won't budge, I used the impact driver and almost busted the hand holding the thing down. I think I'm just going to take it to a shop when I get the front end off before I send to powdercoat the rims.

nice...once i have some extra cash flow, i want to put a gsxr front end on my sv
If you still have the stock front, you can part it out and still make some money back. I know ppl that actually made a profit after all is said and done with.

You can get the whole front end from a GSXR 750(most 750's are a direct swap) for maybe $700-$800. If you part out the front from the SV, I'm sure you can get an easy $500 between fender, front wheel/rotors/forks and triples... oh and the calipers.

Yeah, Just let me know....use the directions on SVR that DonnieJ made up..they helped me and Bryce a bunch. It wasn;t that bad.

PM away and I'll answer what I can.

Rotor bolts...yeah, a real PIA, but I got mine off after convincing them I was bigger...LOL.
