Looking for guidance on rebuilding an SV1000
Hello, I owned a 2000 SV650 years ago and always loved that bike. Recently, I picked up a SV1000 in need of some attention and have done some searching through the forum and been able to find bits and pieces of information regarding my aspirations. However, I was hoping that perhaps I could get some support from the experienced forum members in generating some leads to expedite the process toward rebuilding a 2003 SV1000N.
The bike is in decent shape, no body damage, mechanically seems like it is tired (>26-k miles), and didn't see much love from the previous owner.
My intentions, albeit perhaps a bit grand, are to tear down the bike and rebuild it in its entirety. To start with I am not sure how much to budget and I realize it depends on what the goal is, so let me start with what I optimistically am hoping to accomplish.
I would like to build a nasty 1L street fighter, mid to high torque, larger pistons, cam, improve the clutch and transmission, rework all of the lighting/electric, suspension and brake systems, bob the tail (sub-frame) behind the driver's seat, and re-finish the entire bike (frame, swing arm, wheels, tank, engine & trans cases). Based upon the research I have done thus far, I believe my target of 125-130 bhp is reasonable. I am committed to investing between $3-7k US and doing the mechanical and finish work myself. I will however want to invest in quality performance parts and machining.
I realize that there are many links and even more opinions on this type of build, so I am hoping to start amassing information with the intent to start the tear down later this fall and complete the build within 1-yr. I live in North Carolina (Asheville), but the build will most likely take place at a hangar in northern VA.
If this thread is misplaced, please forgive my intrusion and provide constructive guidance on how best to yield favorable results. Thank you.
