So I guess I can put this up as I've finally committed and did some work.

This Bike started out as a 2011 LAMS SV650s (LAMS being the Australian power restriction scheme for newer riders, which I'm not)

First thing chopped was the stock exhaust, it had to go. This replaced it:



One problem, it was ******* LOUD.. so I made a baffle:




(no, that ain't oil under the bike)






It's still loud, to compare its as loud as a delvic 8".

Next mod was to do was get rid of the restrictions, ECU buying time, and man it took a while to find one but I luckily snatched one up from a member on here!! :eek:ccasion14:
Now it rev's freely, which is awesome as the bike was very lifeless to begin wth.

Getting handy with a Dremel:


This is something on the list to clean up more and paint.

Then this came in the mail:



Masked it up:



Now here's where I went wrong, in a stupid rush I mistakenly ended up picking up enamel gloss black.. two coats and it looks ok, but not the best, also not gonna clear it yet as I'm not too happy with it. (no pics of painting process but there was a lot of waiting, coats of primer and sanding involved.

Getting her undressed:





Marking up for the bars:



And on:



TAG metal fat bars, big and chunky!!


And here is the front all buttoned up

did u use a dremel to cut the fender? or heat knife and cut?

came out nice, real nice, keep it up.

p.s. that tail is gonna be awesome!!
Yeah Dremel, cut through it pretty easily (abs plastic I guess).

Thanks.

Yeah I can't wait, though I need to save the coin to buy a welder.. at first I was hoping that the seat would be a simple fit.. I learnt never to think like that again.

Hells yes! This is one awesome SV.

That tail is nasty (in a good way) and should look amazing mounted up.

Subbing this build for sure.

Couple questions as well,
Did you reinforce the triple where the bar mounts go through, and did you get longer cables or just reroute the S ones?

Thanks!

Steel plate and washers underneath, I can take a photo for you if you need?

I re-routed the throttle cables from left to the right of the bike, everything works well! brake lines are a touch short (it doesn't get tight though) only thing that got a touch tight was the clutch cable but barely. So yeah, you can get away with just re-routing.

What are the odds mate, I have seen quite a few fighters on the CC. lots of cool bikes.

I will keep an eye up for SV's on my next ride .... my bike is very hard to miss, big loud white and blue thing



look my build thread and check out how I did my subframe, if you got stuck on yours let me know and I can give you a hand ...

cheers
