BlueLghtning> regrettably I dont have any contact on this guy, I can tell only what I heard:

Forks seems to be older KTM conventional, front wheel RM250. 2 gas tanks are made of fiberglass. The frame took some serious cuting and welding - mainly the rear shock mounting was reinforced so the bike is capable of bigger jumps and offroad abuse :)
Under the engine are also some braces to protect the engine and hold the skidplate. (Im not sure about proper technical expression, Im not native english speaker)
Rear suspension is the biggest mystery, it should be some lever system manufactured by "Métisse" (hope you know what I mean)
Plastic is mostly KTM, rear fender seems to be Husqvarna

Almost 2 years since the last reply.
Anyone have any new news on the SV Enduro from the Czech guy or Gaspare Momesso project.
Would love to get rake/trail numbers from these bikes.

Perhaps someone can enlighten me. But why do you need to use 41mm forks? Is it so they will slide directly into the SV's triple clamps?

Are the SV's stock geomytry dirt worthy?
Why not mod another dirtbikes triple clamps and forks to work on the SV frame? That's what I did with my Transalp-put some XR650R forks on her. Wasn't too hard.

This looks like an interesting thread. Sure would like to hear if anyone out there has more info on making the SV more dirt friendly. The numbers for HP and weight look very attractive compared to the ever popular Ninja mods being done today.

great idea to compile info, pscyhsurf. this is a very late reply but i just picked up a pair of XT600 forks from an 80s model and there is no tapering, just 41mm the length of the stancheons. this will help as there is a fair bit of adjustment possible before the forks hit the handlebars. possibly the tapering forks are from a later model xt600? i heard they changed in the 1990s...

these should be a great fit and just slide into the SV triple clamps so no messing around with steering locks, instrumentation etc.

i'll need to confirm but it looks as though the stock SV650 axle will work in the XT forks which would be a bonus.

there are various suzuki 1000cc front discs that are 320mm and will bolt on the SV hub, so all i'll need to do is grab one of those then a complete front brake caliper, brake line and lever etc and rig up a caliper adapter plate to space it correctly for the larger disc.

the front should go up by three inches or so for extra clearance, which should balance out nicely will the 90s model ZXR rear shock which is an inch longer than the SV650 so should kick the rear up about the same amount. or just get a set of dog bones that will kick up the rear instead.

at this stage will just fit a high profile front tyre to take it a bit closer to the diameter of a 19" front wheel. but i do have an old RM250 21 inch one lying around. this has the same 20mm axle as the SV650 so shouldn't be tricky to fit.

and some preliminary measurements show a honda transalp rear wheel could be easily adapted (and i can get one for just $100). the only tricky bit looks to be the rear disc is too big for the SV650 but the transalp has the same disc bolt hole pattern as an XR400 rear disc which is 220mm like the SV. too easy!

just thought i'd mention this in case anyone is looking at spoked wheels. if so, other 21" front wheels with a 20mm axle diameter are the WR250F, WR450F, YZ250F, YZ450F and early RM250s. all have the same bolt hole pattern and the cheap way to put a bigger disc on is the 310mm DRZ400SM front disc with the correct bolt hole pattern, and under $150 new on Fleabay.

it would be interesting to get hold of a wrecked transalp actually. the forks would slide straight in, you'd still have twin discs up front....

just an update. definitely no tapering of the XT600 forks and they just slid into the SV triple clamps. but the stock SV650 axle did NOT work in the XT forks so just rummaged through a box of axles at the wreckers till i found something that worked.

i did a write up here if anyone is interested in what i'd call an intermediate build, just enough to make the SV650 a reasonable adventure bike but you'd want to avoid anything harder than dirt roads in reasonable condition.



i don't think it's been mentioned on this thread, but there's a handy chart here comparing all the specs of rear shocks that are apparently suited to the SV650.

and another one here by ohlins. useful if you want to try and find a rear shock with similar length but more stroke to get longer travel on the rear. it covers dirt bikes and road bikes.

just click on the pics below to go to the relevant build threads...

i had some dog bones laser cut so that i could experiment with raising the rear of the SV650 either or two inches. i'm messing around with both settings and hard to decide which is best as the XT600 forks don't have a lot of travel so i'm keeping the front end lower than if i'd got a good set of upside forks fitted with 12 inches of travel.

it was going to cost the same to get one pair or several done due to minimum order requirements they have.

so if anyone is after some cheap adjustable dog bones at $30 plus postage i set up a page here.

a lot of good info in this thread. i'm currently working on some sort of skid plate, more of a rock deflector really. high speed gravel was pinging the oil filter and case pretty good.

also, this thread needs a video. old guys, turn the sound off, you probably won't like the music!

does anyone know the actual weight of a sv650 motor? as many of you are, I am looking to build a twin adventure bike and Im looking for the lightest motor to start with. I will probably end up building a frame or hacking a preexisting one up to the point that its no longer recognizable. I have been leaning towards the ever popular ninja 650 due to the more compact layout but I figured it I should look into the sv also.
