Are you going to have it on the dyno again before building it, or are you waiting until after?
Back on the dyno sometime this month, so before it gets built.Are you going to have it on the dyno again before building it, or are you waiting until after?
Your mods aren't that different from mine actually. I have the full M4, SVTs are removed (mechanism still in place for now), TRE, I left my air box stock and modified the snorkel slightly and installed a BMC filter. I have a PCV instead of the PCIII. I also have Chewy's PAIR delete kit, not that that will make any difference to the power.My bike has a few things done that yours doesn't (full M4, STVs gone, hacked up airbox), but it also has a slight midrange dip. https://scontent.fsjc1-2.fna.fbcdn....=fc647ae01f36f74fbd44bbb2e76f7ef7&oe=560D3D7D is the dyno plot, from 5k to 7.5k or so there's a minor dip. I wouldn't expect a fully concave down chart.
Nice! I just filled up the tank and since correcting the position on that rear exhaust cam, I'm getting 36.1mpg which is up almost 3mpg. I'm still seriously considering getting a second tank to modify so it has closer to 6 gallons.
I'd like to keep the tank resembling the stock tank as much as possible. I don't think a TLS/R tank would work too well with the angular lines of the SV1K but that's still a great idea. I'll have to do some image searching to see if there are other possibilities. I just hope the built motor get similar gas mileage or even better when it's done.Back many years ago for endurance race tanks, you would grab one of the recalled TL1000S tanks (we had many) and cut the top half off and weld it to the lower half of a GSX-R tank.
One question on a second tank...is a 2003 tank OK or should I stick with 04+? I know I can use a tank from a SV650 or SV1000.
TLR motor teardown tomorrow to get the cylinders. Suppose I'll try selling off the remainder of the motor on ebay unless someone here wants any of it? Free for the price of shipping.
Well, since I am planning on cutting a tank apart to make it bigger, adding some speed dents won't be a big deal.An 03S tank will work on other models but you have to add a couple of speed dents around where the subframe mounts are. I can't remember exactly but I do recall using a 2x4 and a big hammer to "reshape" the tank for use on one of our 650 race bikes.
PM sent on TLR parts.
Yeah, I am considering this until I can get and modify another tank. Just need to figure out a safe way to do that without dropping metal shavings into the tank or causing it to explode while I'm doing it. Problem with the CA tank is that it has that extra vent line that needs to be plugged when you over fill it like that. Gas will leak out for a bit unless you don't. Also takes up some space inside the tank although a negligible amount.To increase range, you could always increase the efficiency of the motor rather than just stuffing a bigger tank on the bike. Mine will go 200 miles with no problems and a comfortable reserve averaging about 50 mpg and stuffing the airspace in the tank to full capacity. The CA tank just slows your filling down with the deeper neck. If you're patient, or drill a small vent hole at the top of the neck...you can fill to the full 4.5 or more.
