Damn, cant wait to see the finished product!

I will one day have a nicely set up SV for street fun (hell, even some fun on track too when I want to give the R6 a rest). I really do like them bikes and have missed a few good deals on some.

Team Resurrection currently has 2 SV motors going together. I was schooled last night on transmission assembly. Here are pictures of 2 assmebled transmissions in the engine cases.



We can assmeble a third motor if we can get the crankshaft journal repaired for a reasonable price. Below are pictures of the damaged crankshaft. The damage occurred after a pretty long wheelie.

The plan as of right now is to go into next season with 2 fully preppy SVs. One is already fully prepped and ready to go. I found a good deal on a 2nd gen that as it sits only needs tires. I rebuilt the stock forks and rear penske shock and put springs on it for my weight. That bike will run the stock front end and stock wheels. Basically it will be the "B" bike. I have a spare set of wheels for it.

The "A" bike has a 05 gsxr front on it and 06+ gsxr rear wheel. I have spare gsxr rear wheel and have the spacers and kit to make the stock rear caliper work which is cool because now I don't have to worry about sourcing as many 160 rear tires.

As of now both bikes have operational motors. Gus and I are putting together 2 other motors right now. The big motor will go in the "A" bike that running the fully gsxr setup. The motor that's in it now will be it's backup motor. The 2nd motor we are putting together will be another backup motor. So we are basically going into the season with 2 bikes and 2 extra motors. We can feasibly put together a 3rd motor and most of 3rd bike but I'm missing a rear shock which is pretty pricy.I'm trying to save money for entry fees and tires right now but our attempt on preperation is looking pretty damn good.

Some more pictures as the build goes on. We assembled the transmissions the night before last. Last night we begain the process of assmebling the connecting rods to the crankshaft and replacing the wrist pins, cir clips, connecting rod bearings and I imagine the next step will be to end gap the rings and then honing the cylinders. I'm learning a lot regarding engine assembly this time around.

We weighed each connecting rod / piston assembly and they are less than a half gram different. Satisfactory

I'm going to make an honest attempt at running the whole season next year. Go out, ride my own ride, try to rack up as many points as I can in every class and try not to die.

You can't ride team challenge alone

I don't know if i'm selling off SV parts and building a 600. Or take all my parts and build a superbike.

To go superbike, I need:
Complete bottom end
lightened crank
pistons
flat slides
cylinders bored
Lost of hours in the machine shop to make light weight parts and triple trees

I have everything else
Gasket kit
Connecting rods
Spare cylinders to bore
Spare heads to clean up
Cams for cam swap
Cam Sprockets
The rest of the bike
GSXR rear wheel
Penske shock
AK20's up front
Lightweight subframe

I wish I could be putting more into my SV over the winter, but work hasn't been that great so I am lacking in budget.

Modification to run rear 06+ GSXR 600 / 750 on 1st Gen SV650. Spacers are captive. Same bearings remain in GSXR wheel. Use Stock SV axle with new spacers. No worries on sourcing 160 tires with this mod. Geometry does not change much at all. Same rear ride height. Tire is a bit taller so to get same gearing different sprocket ratios need to be played with. We will definitely see how it goes hopefully late december go to Jennings.



Also on B bike 2nd Gen we have captive spacers for rear wheel. On B bike we will still run 160 rubber. Hopefully Michelin makes some. I will only need a few of those for next year.

Stock carbs at sea level

- cut snorkle out of air filter. The round oval line around the snorkle on the airbox. Cut that bitch out of there with a dremel. Now we have air

- Open pipe... stock headers or aftermarket doesn't matter much. But open muffler

- 17.5 pilots

- 165 mains

- Clip on 2nd slot from top of needle

- pilot air screw 2.5 turns out

Done

I'm in Pa from Sunday through next weekend, then in San Diego for Thanksgiving then in Corona California through that whole next week.

We moved a little further on the motor build between various other things in our busy lives Saturday and Tuesday night.

Saturday we assembled the bottom end. Quadruple checked the trans assembly, assembled the crankshaft, rods, pistons, end gapped the rings and bolted the cases together. Tuesday the cylinders were put onto the pistons and the heads were disassembled for lapping. A couple were a little leaky.

Suspension is out to be completely upgraded. These lighweight guys are damn fast so I don't want to miss a thing. I'm not sure if I can click off a low 15 or high 14 at blackhawk but I'll give it a try.

Both bikes are done and ready for race season. Trying to get out to Grattan this coming Sunday. If it's going to be above 40 and dry I'm going to turn some laps. The Resurrection crew has a lot of time into these 2 machines.
