schmidt314 is a memeber who can probably come along with some definitive answers on this.
There are some bikes out there with intergrated magnets in their rotors, but none of these will fit the SV....
The crank end is different, the firing triggers on the rotor are specific, and my mum doesn't approve of the changes either..... :D

I think that is pretty much it, but the member i mentioned will see your post and add/subtract to what i said

If i remeber corretly the forum member Jumjum went a little overboard and sort of did what you are describing.
He lightened the flywheel and welded some stocks into place which acted as pockets for the magnets.

Try to search a little.

Also i uploaded a drawing of the K5 flywheel which can be used to lighten a K3/4 flywheel.

Yeah, wasn't a fan of that adding metal idea, increases the weight of the rotor, and unless its a press fit, the magnets can still vibe themselves free of the rotor.....

Dont know what has happened with the Sharealike guy, hop eits not health related.....nobody has had replies from them for a long time.... WERKS Parts in the USA are your only go really.

Yeah, i know shipping and the like hurts, but, i know his work is 100%....and the bike ? It would gladly have your children out of gratefulness.....

Hi I have a gen 1 sv650 and I turned the flywheel down to lighten it and I did it without removing the magnets the after machining. got worried after reading that it was a age thing that the standard magnet glue starts to let go.
The magnets can slide around affecting the charging and throwing the fly wheel out of balance.
I should have removed the magnets and re-glued them with jbweld, instead after machining coated all round the magnets and filled the gap between the magnets.
I am happy with my results and I know those magnets are going no where.
the 1 thing I would change is I used the jb weld with added steel and surprize it really have steel in it, and it keep changing shape to look like the magnetic fields, requiring me to keep massaging it back in place creating a untidy glue job.
So use the jbweld without steel.
Before removing magnets scribe round them and right numbers on the magnets both ends 1-12 if 6 magnets. and take pictures. I look at the pictures now and think I should have turned down the starter clutch a bit more.

I have a late model DL rotor on my current bike. Crank end are different size so I just swapped in a 14 DL1000 crank. I lightened it a whole bunch.

I thought I updated topic here with those pictures.

Not sure the 650 had the same issue with the magnets.....but they are stuck now.....clean it up well ... And wow that flywheel is very thin.....

Yes I cleaned it up and balanced it using a bearing on a shaft mounted in a vice. Its been on the bike over a year, full revs often and still going. Its a faction thicker than full race items I have seen on the net, I zoomed pictures on the net to work out what should be a safe amount to machine off.
