Actually, If you try, you can get an SV under 300lbs, lighter than a 610/690/DRZ(?).

Cereal? I like Corn Flakes.

I've heard that Ed Key's bike is under 300, and some other racers have gotten them into that range. Dunno if you could do that and keep it street legal though.

I think it's a pretty cool looking concept. I'm just not sure the purpose of putting heavier spoked wheels on a bike that already comes with 17" rims. Especially when you put on a rear wheel without a brake rotor!

So you get 11" travel up front and 6" in rear, Might make a good sand bike. Thats almost as ghetto as my trailer.

Looks good, functionality probably isn't that great. Cool to be different, but I wouldn't use it "aggressively" though. It'd make a fun wheelie bike, but then again, what isn't a fun wheelie bike lol

Take it to the STREETS!

GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

"So we started in this lightweight class dominated by Buells and Suzuki SV650 twins, which are bored out to 700 cc. The top finishing Suzuki SV weighs about 300 lbs dry with a 92 hp at the rear wheel, we were at 470 lbs dry with 88 hp at the rear wheel. Even with the weight and power disadvantage I finished 2 nd behind the Suzuki."


Holey Chet!

My wallet can't keep up with that. Besides, the best go fast upgrade for me would be *I* dropped 100lbs!

Fantastic work and great idea....but man that's a whole lot of ugly going on there. I'm an SV fan, not so much the 2nd generation frames and this is no improvement looks wise.
